Music develops a wide variety of skills, both academic and practical, which have a great impact on wider academic development. The subject also enhances pupils’ creative proficiency and abilities as confident and communicative performers.

Music has long been recognised by universities as a valuable entrance qualification and is usefully combined with subjects from the arts, languages or science disciplines. The broad range of transferable skills and techniques offered by the subject – such as the need to be able to research a topic, to display analytical skills, self-discipline and teamwork – pave the way for a wide range of university courses.
