Music

The music industry is worth £4.4bn to the UK economy and currently has over 142,200 people in full-time employment, 67,000 of whom are musicians. We offer Music Technology and Music Performance diplomas, Music A Level, as well as a HND in Music Production.

We are one of the largest A Level departments of its kind in England and many of our A Level leavers (about 40%) continue to study music or music-related courses. We currently have alumni studying music at the UKs most prestigious Conservatoires (RNCM, BC, RWCMD), Universities (Cambridge, Oxford, Durham), and popular music ‘Institutes’ (BiMMs, ICMP). Many staff continue to be active in the music industry as remix artists, sound editors and producers. Specialist facilities at London Road include three dedicated recording studios and a specialist production suite. The courses are enhanced by regular guest lectures and trips.

Level 3 Music Technology
Previous school: Caereinion High School

There has been some big investments in the Music Technology department at SCG recently – so there is great kit here, and the teachers have so much experience and knowledge of the subject. I grew up around music, as my Dad is a singer and always had an interest – especially in the tech side of it all. I have secured a great job with Energized Sound & Lighting through the course and will hopefully be going on to study Music Technology at university.

I am thankful for the excellent music teaching I have received, both at the College and from my instrumental teachers. I am going to study Music at Cambridge University and am excited to continue expanding my musical knowledge. I feel very privileged to be going to such a prestigious university!

A Level Music (Business, Economics, Psychology)
Previous school: Church Stretton School

I will study Music at Durham University and then do a PGCE as I would like to become a college Music teacher. This has been inspired by the great teachers at SCG and all the hard work they have put in to help me. I learnt composition and theory and truly developed my skills as a Musician. I play classical guitar and never thought I’d be able to consider it as a future career. I also take part in the MaDA performances and am a member of the college choir - these are great confidence builders.
