Programme of Study – Music
Music is an exciting and rewarding subject. It brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. Students have the opportunity to perform, as well as create their own work using a wide range of instruments and technologies. Through key stage 3 students explore a variety of topics, from Film Music to African Drumming and Dance Music to Minimalism. In each topic students will be assessed on their performance, composition and appraising skills. Music is a subject which requires perseverance and dedication, and this is a reason it is a subject so highly valued in the academic world.
