Studying Music at GCSE is an excellent way to develop your performance, composition and listening skills as well as studying a range of musical styles, from Classical to Popular Music and World Music. At Fallibroome we aim to help enjoy and explore music in different ways – we want you to be curious and learn ways to analyse, perform and compose music with other, musical students.
In Year 10, following an introductory unit focused on general musicianship, students begin the study of 8 set works. Resources for these set works can be found in the folders below.
Students explore the music through listening, composition, performance and analysis, drawing on extensive musical vocabulary and identifying musical features. This listening, analysis and knowledge of set works leads towards the written examination in the summer term of Year 11.
In lessons, students have the opportunity to develop their ensemble performance skills, rehearsing and arranging different styles of music which are then performed to the class. Students also regularly perform solo repertoire to the class in preparation for the examined performances which begin in the summer term of Year 10. Composition skills are developed initially through a range of short composition tasks which enable students to deepen their knowledge of musical devices and the individual composition process. Some of this composition work uses Cubase and/or Sibelius software which students are taught to use.
