The Key Stage 3 music course is divided into several units of study for each of the year groups; 7, 8 and 9. Different musical styles and genres are explored in each unit, with students experiencing a wide variety of music from the Baroque period to the popular music of today.

Each unit provides students with opportunities to acquire and apply new practical skills and knowledge through either performing, composing, or a combination of both. All units also contain an element of listening to, and appraising, music.
