“One good thing about music—when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
Studying music helps students to increase their cognitive ability, improve their numeracy and literacy, and develop their social and emotional well-being. It involves problem solving, research, planning, using analytical and critical thinking skills, as well as developing creativity. In Years 7 and 8, music is studied by all students and gives them a chance to perform, compose and appraise different styles of music. At GCSE level, students deepen their understanding of music theory and develop their performing and composing techniques.
