Music and Culture Online Course
Who is the course designed for?
This course is suitable for learners aged 14 years and above. The Music and Culture course will allow students to develop pre-requisite knowledge and skills helpful for Level 3 Music qualifications or a career in the music industry. Skills are learnt with respect to the performance and composition of music but there is also a focus on the social importance of music and the manifestation of music within culture.
An assumption is made that students will have a basic proficiency in the playing and reading of music as neither of these skills are actively taught within the lessons.
How is the course planned and assessed?
This assured course is studied across two years and involves 120 hours of guided learning time. Successful completion of all units leads to the award of a course certificate and digital credential endorsed by the City and Guilds Examination Board. Those completing less than the full course will be eligible for InterHigh Unit Certification for each unit of work completed.
Assessment is entirely through coursework and is made on a Pass/Fail basis.
