Students who opt for GCSE Music will study the Eduqas specification:


This subject is largely practical (60% involves practical music-making), allows you to be creative, gives you the opportunity to play music with others in e.g. pairs, pop/rock groups, bands, orchestras or vocal groups, gives you the opportunity to learn more about and use music technology.


You will learn about different styles of music incorporating them into your own compositions (Pop songs, music for Film, “Dance” tracks, and instrumental pieces).

There are two set works, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (Mt 3)-Mozart and “Since you’ve been Gone –Rainbow. The rest of the course is divided up into four areas of study:

  • Musical Forms & Devices
  • Music for Ensemble
  • Film Music
  • Popular music

The course structure is outlined below:









Perform 2 pieces on any instrument (including voice), in any style.  One ensemble and one ensemble or solo.




Compose 2 pieces of music (One is your own choice, the other is set by the Board)




75 Minute exam based on the Areas of Study and the TWO set works.

Head of Department: Mr. F. Mallinson
