What will I study?

You will develop your ability to read and understand music notation. In doing so, you will gain a deeper awareness of how music is created, be able to sight read music better, perform music more accurately and listen to music with more discernment.

Is this course right for me?

The subject is strongly advised for Music students whose knowledge of Theory is not yet at Grade 5 standard. A pass in Grade 5 Theory is prerequisite for continuation onto the second year of the A Level Music course. Tuition is also given in higher level grades up to and beyond Grade 8.

Where next?

The upper Music Practical and Theory grades are recognised as excellent training for students wishing to study any music-related courses in higher education and carry UCAS points.
