Course Details

The BTEC Certificate course, which is the equivalent of an AS Level, aims to extend your performance skills, enabling you to develop your skills to lead you to a successful career as a musician. Lessons take place in our fully resourced and purpose-built Dankworth Music Suite. The course suits anybody with an interest in performing Music- you do not need to be able to read musical notation. However, you do need to be passionate about Music and have the willingness to learn! Modules include: Music performance techniques; a live music project, where students organise and run their own concert event and live music workshops. The course offers you the opportunity to improve your existing musical and performance skills and perform at a variety of venues and events.

In the second year, students who successfully complete this course will be able to sign up for the Subsidiary Diploma in Music (Performing). Units will include composing music and working and developing musical ensembles.

The BTEC Level 3 Certificate can be combined with the Acting and Dance Certificates to create a fulltime performance programme.
