Level 3 Music

13MUS
Course Description

Contact Person: M. Payne

This course helps develop the more experienced musician.  Composers begin to work out their unique viewpoints and how to communicate these, and performers start to develop into more convincing artists. All students will be given the option to broaden their understanding of notation by completing one or more external standard. Students are able to create an individualised course from the large number of standards that are on offer.  This allows students to work within their musical strengths and interests.
