Here, you’ll find everything you need to study for or to teach the Edexcel GCE AS and A level in Music, including key documents and the latest news.
Students of our Edexcel A level in Music will engage with the diverse and dynamic heritage of music, extend the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to communicate through music, and recognise the interdependence of musical skills and the links between the activities of performing, composing and appraising.
Why choose this specification?
Our Edexcel A level Music specification is simple in design but comprehensive, and is intended to be stimulating and enriching for students and teachers alike. Its six-unit structure allows students to experience all three main musical disciplines of performing, composing, and listening and understanding.
The course aims to engage and extend appreciation of the diverse and dynamic heritage of music, promote spiritual and cultural development, encourage life-long learning and provide access to music-related and other careers.
