Key Stage 4 – GCSE Music - Edexcel syllabus

Music covers performing, composing and appraising music, broken down as follows:

Performance (30%)
During the course, pupils take part in many different performances, either with an ensemble or as a soloist. Final recitals are performed in March of Year 11. These performances can be in any style and on any instrument. 

Composition (30%)
Pupils work on one composition in Year 10 and another in Year 11. One is in response to a choice of briefs set by the exam board and the other is a free choice composition. Compositions can be written for any instrument and submitted through traditional notation software, music technology or through live recording with an accompanying commentary.

Listening Examination (40%)
Pupils study eight set works from an anthology and are asked questions based on recorded extracts of these set works in an examination.
