GCSE music aims to develop students' independent and group performance ability, composition skills, and ability to organize music creativity through the teaching of three modules, expand students' musical experience and interests, develop imagination, and cultivate creativity. The three modules are: Performance, Composition, Listening/Appreciation.
GCSE music must not only learn various musical elements and musical language, but also combine historical context, dimensional understanding and appreciation of the development of music, which paves the way for the final listening test.
At the same time, performance accounts for 30% of the final assessment, which is the most critical prerequisite for learning the course. This means that students must have a musical instrument or singing specialty. Throughout the course, solo and ensemble performances are also performed. Compositional skills are also cultivated throughout. In the final formal examination, students will submit 2 works, one of which will be designated by the examination bureau.
