Music A Level at The Hazeley Academy

Course description

A vibrant musical education fosters curiosity and openness to both familiar and unfamiliar musical worlds. Through such a study of music we learn to hear relationships of pitch in sound, pattern in rhythm and unfolding sonic structures. Through participating in the study of music we are able to explore the similarities, diļ¬€erences and links in music from within our own culture and that of others across time. Informed and active musical engagement allows us to explore and discover relationships between lived human experience and specific sound combinations and technologies, thus informing us more fully of the world around us, and the nature of humanity.

A Level Music covers composing, performing, listening and understanding, providing an excellent basis for lifelong learning and for higher education courses in music.

The A Level course demands performing, composing, listening and analytical skills in almost equal measure. You will improve your skills in performing and composing in a range of styles and listen to a wide variety of music, developing a more informed appreciation of how and why it was written or performed.
