The OCR GCSE Music qualification provides a contemporary, accessible, and creative education in music with an integrated approach to the three main elements – performing, composing, and appraising.
The OCR GCSE Music qualification is designed to appeal to, and cater for a wide range of interests, instruments, personalities and directions. The new specification offers a range of opportunities to study diverse and traditional fields, and encourages learners to experiment in their own performing, composing and listening as well as develop interest in and enthusiasm for all aspects of their musical heritage.
The OCR GCSE Music syllabus enables pupils to progress on to A Level Music and/or develop their skills as a performer or composer.
