Music GCSE

Event: Music GCSE

Anglesey

Based at our Conway Centres: Anglesey have an excellent range of facilities for Performing Arts and we offer high quality education aimed at encouraging creativity, providing opportunity & raising attainment.

Students will focus on key learning outcomes to develop their practical work and subject knowledge in composing, performing, listening and appraising. Under guidance and direction of practising musicians / leading music tutors, students will use both contemporary and traditional techniques to develop compositions, solo and group performances, and critical and contextual reference will be used to focus activities and ideas.

Both our fully qualified teaching staff and our associate artists have a significant breadth of specialist experience which allows them to engage students and inspire them to achieve to the best of their ability.

Desired Outcomes

An opportunity to work alongside nationally recognised subject specialists, practising musicians and subject leaders.

To allow students to work imaginatively and creatively in collaborative contexts generating, developing and communicating ideas whilst adding a significant body of work to the students’ coursework folders.

To encourage students to mix with other pupils and teachers from other schools to build confidence and develop networking skills in a positive, shared space.
