Is it for me?

The course is suitable for learners with an interest in contemporary popular music, who have some skills on an instrument/voice but are keen to develop their technical knowledge and performing experience. Traditionally, Level 2 Music programmes have recruited from a wide range of applicants; some may have little practical experience and lack confidence, others may have quite a bit of experience in one area but need to broaden their knowledge, some may be practically strong but need the qualification to access Level 3 Music programmes. What is important is that applicants are keen to develop their skills, in both practical and theoretical work, and that they are prepared to engage positively in all aspects of the course. Applicants need to be open-minded and ready to try out new things.

What’s involved?

Learners will work as a company to plan, rehearse and perform in a variety of gigs throughout the year. Material chosen for gigs is as varied as possible, with the direct aim of expanding knowledge and experience of different genres/styles. As well as practical sessions, learners will attend classes involving research, analysis and production of coursework. Written work will cover aspects of the music industry, professional development, musical analysis and theory and contextual studies.

Entry Requirements:

Some ability/aspiration on an instrument or voice

4/5 GCSEs grades C-E

Progression:

Most successful learners - those attaining at least a Merit, as well as appropriate qualifications in English and Maths - usually progress to Level 3 Music programmes. Others have used the programme to build up their confidence in accessing a college course, and having made the decision to branch out, have gone on to achieve in other areas. The programme is very much about developing a wide range of personal skills, and these life skills are transferable across into any context, whether at college or at work.
