KS4 GCSE Music

The GCSE Music Course fosters candidates’ musical sensitivity, creativity and aural perceptions through the acquisition of knowledge, skills and understanding and the exercise of the imagination. It promotes candidates’ cultural development, involvement in and enjoyment of music as performers, composers and appraisers through the study of a wide range of music including the music of Wales. Students will study music using the Four Areas of Study – Music in Wales / Music for Stage and Screen / music Evolution / musical Forms and devices.
