Music is a key part of daily life at Ebbw Fawr 3-16. Whether in the classroom, in individual lessons or in school performances, we believe that an understanding and love of music is beneficial to all students.

We believe that listening to music or playing a musical instrument is not just good for the brain, but also makes us more emotionally responsive and sensitive people. Through sharing music, singing and playing together we can learn important values of community, teamwork and discipline.

At Ebbw Fawr, we aim to provide our students with a broad and rigorous understanding of the music. We seek to introduce our students to all avenues of music and then encourage them to pursue their particular interests to the highest degree.

Students are taught that healthy, efficient practice results in excellence, and our regular school performances provide a showcase for their hard-work and enthusiasm.

Why study Music?

Music is all around us. It influences our moods and emotions and stimulates and excites us in many ways. 

Following this GCSE course will develop your understanding of how music is created through four Areas of Study. In the course you will learn how to compose and develop skills in performing and appraising

GCSE Music teaches you to learn independently and how to work as a team. Many pupils further their study at AS and A level and even beyond that.
