AQA GCSE Music -


 GCSE Music helps students to develop subject knowledge, understanding and skills, through listening to a variety of music, playing music and creating their own music. The AQA course has been designed to be relevant and contemporary, offering students the chance to study a wide range of musical genres, with more opportunities for practical learning. The GCSE brings theory, listening and composition to life in new and engaging ways. This four-unit GCSE assesses students' skills in listening and appraising, composing and performing music. The course itself is designed to value all music styles, skills and instruments. You will learn about music by looking at set works from the Western Classical, Popular and Traditional genres. Set works include music from Haydn, The Beatles and Santana. Students should elect to take GCSE in order to broaden their minds and foster a love of all music and is intended for all abilities and backgrounds to enjoy.
