Have you thought about studying A Level Music?

If you are hoping to study A Level Music, either to complete your musical education or as a stepping stone to higher education in music, but are unable to find a suitable opportunity to study the subject in your local school or college, why not consider taking an A Level Music course through Junior Trinity?

Our success rate is outstanding – over the last 8 years 87% of our students have achieved A*-B grades; 95% A-C. In 2015, Distance-learning students all achieved A grades.

How does the course run?

We offer a unique high-quality A Level Music course, now in its eighth year, involving distance-learning guided by weekly lessons in small groups using Skype, as well as one-to-one composition tutorials with a specialist composer and performance work with your instrumental or vocal tutor.

The course is supervised by the GCSE and A Level Programme Manager for Junior Trinity. Students also benefit from a wealth of A Level teaching experience from a range of academic tutors who are or have been Heads of Music in schools and colleges and examiners for A Level examination boards. Junior Trinity enters about 50 students every year for GCSE and A Level Music and Music Technology examinations. Distance-learning students become part of the cohort. One of the distinctive high-points of the course is regular visits on a Saturday to Junior Trinity in the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, where distance-learning students become Junior Trinity students for a day.

Are you suited to our A Level course?

Most students are in the 16-19 age group and are following other academic courses at school or college. Students need to be independent and highly self-motivated, working confidently on their own, although at the same time always in close contact with their tutors through email and Skype. At the start of the course we expect students to have an above average performance standard and a genuine interest in composition, as well as real fluency in music theory and literacy and excellent English language skills. There are significant bonuses with this course; as well as all the benefits of becoming a junior conservatoire student, small teaching groups mean that tutors and students gets to know each other very well and tutors can cater individually for students’ needs in order to support them fully and develop their specific interests.

If you are interested in the possibility of joining the course please email and we will arrange a discussion for you with the course leader.
