A Level Music

Course Information


Music is a deeply rewarding subject to study at A-level; a demanding academic discipline, developed through exciting practical work. The innovative new Eduqas A-level specification places a greater weighting on performance than other awarding bodies, allowing students to utilise and capitalise on their instrumental and vocal skills as part of the assessment process.

Career opportunities

A-Level Music is held in high regard by Russell Group universities because they recognise that musicians are creative, organised and tenacious. They are focused, good at problem solving, independent, team players and are able to focus on the finer details. A-Level Music brings together intellect, emotion, analysis, creativity and personal expression. In turn it opens up careers in performance, broadcasting, film, education, music therapy, events management, music production and publishing. Music graduates can be found working in a number of fields and the subject complements any combination of A-Level choices.
