GCE Music

Hitting the right note

3 good reasons to choose our qualification:

  1. New Composition with Technology tasks embrace the latest digital technologies
  2. Composition is now internally assessed
  3. New Set Works facilitate the study of music across a breadth of styles and genres

This specification is for first teaching from September 2016.

Through our GCE Music specification students can create and perform music that allows them to express their own interests and style.

In the AS units, they study music from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods right through to popular musicals and sacred vocal styles. Students who continue to A2 explore in more depth orchestral music of the twentieth century alongside secular and sacred vocal music spanning over 400 years.
