Personal Attributes Required:
You need to be able to sing or play an instrument to a reasonable standard.

How will Music help me in the future?
You do not have to become a Music Teacher or sign up for X Factor just because you have decided to take music! However, it will show employers you have a wider range or interests and skills than most. Also, that you have shown dedication and commitment to learn a musical instrument and to study music. Music GCSE is hard work, but equally one of the most enjoyable subjects to learn and succeed in.
There is an expectation that students will complete a range of written and research tasks throughout the course. Students will also be expected to rehearse their chosen instrument or voice, as a minimum, weekly and attend additional performance sessions rehearsals when necessary.
