In KS4 students can opt to continue music forward and go on to study BTEC Tech Award in Music; a course which offers a hands on approach to learning about the music industry, performance and composition. The course is tailored to individual’s interests within the industry, whether that be in sound technician roots or performer roots. Students have the freedom of choice on their instrument study and can excel through teacher lead workshops and independent performance development. BTEC allows students to work to briefs designed to replicate scenarios they may come across in the industry. The aim of the course is to provide students with a well-rounded knowledge of the industry and their instrumental study, which fully equips them to progress in their music education.

Supporting your Child

Encourage your son/daughter to practise their instrument on a regular basis

Perform with other young musicians. Groups such as the Northamptonshire county ensembles and Saturday music schools are ideal.

Encourage your son/daughter to attend concerts to listen to live music.

Listen to a wide range of music

Provide practise opportunities for keyboard work – access to a keyboard or piano is ideal, but keyboard apps for smartphones and tablets are also suitable.

Take your son/ daughter to listen to live music whenever possible.

Encourage your son/ daughter to support the college productions or attend local performances in the area.

Support your son/daughter if they want to learn to play an instrument. There are many ways of learning from internet tuition to school lessons.
