GCSE & A-level Courses

GCSE and A-level music are HUGE subjects and many of our students feel that there is not sufficient time in their taught classes at school to cover areas such as unfamiliar listening and dictation in as much depth as they would like. 


On our courses, you will learn how to analyse music with confidence and discover how a good theoretical knowledge of music will enable you to even predict some answers before you have even heard the music! 


We offer a variery of courses and one to one to one tuition to support your child throughout their course, or just in the run up to exams. 


As always, we offer a friendly and relaxed environment and we keep our groups nice and small so everyone gets the attention they need. If you are interested in signing up for one of these courses, please email us and we will get you booked in.
