Level 3 Music: Group Performance

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss A. Rabin.

Recommended Prior Learning

Prior study of Music, such as at Level 1 & 2, is recommended and the ability to play an instrument/sing OR compose, otherwise please seek the advice of the HOD Music for entry.

This course will require you to commit to performing in a group, which will not only further develop your musical skills but also enhance your confidence to be on stage and ability to work alongside others; this is designed to develop your skills within all aspects of music, as well as creative, personal and interpersonal communication skills. You will also be able to more deeply develop your use of Music Technology (such as Sibelius & Noteflight) for creation. 

You can begin to focus more on your strengths of either composing or performance at this level, as well as choosing to do non-performance standards such as Research, and Harmonic Theory. 


An external may also be offered for students wishing to gain endorsement, however, it is recommended that both Semesters of Music are taken for students to develop their knowledge in order to do this exam. 

Additionally, for students wishing to attain the Solo Perform standard, it is recommended that students take both Semesters to attain the level of skills required, and receive enough Itinerant tuition, to be able to successfully complete 2 performance sets.
