Why Choose this Course?

If you have previously attained a level 2 qualification in music (or can play an instrument to approx grade 3 standard), and want to further progress then this course is the next step. The BTEC level 3 syllabus provides you with the knowledge and experience that will be required for further and higher education. It will also provide you with understanding, and encourage appreciation of a wide variety of music genres. 

Possible related careers may include singing/playing, teaching, composing, producing and DJing. Studying Music at level 3 does not however, mean you have to follow a career in it; but it does provide many career paths and allows for higher education progression.
