Hello,

Not sure if this is the best place to put this, but I'm stuck and would appreciate any suggestions!

I am an adult who has recently discovered a passion for music, and have decided that I would like to study it part-time. I'm sad that I missed out on GCSE and A level music in school, and wanted to study in a sixth-form or community college to be around other students and extracurricular activities like choirs and ensembles, etc. I was a little surprised to find nowhere seems to offer Music GCSE for adults, only A-level. Does anyone know either of a college which offers it, or have any ideas what else I could do which would achieve similar ends? Or is private tuition to A level standard my only option, if I want to take it that far?

Thanks so much!

Check out the ABRSM website - they offer a wide range of qualifications for people from all ages and all disciplines (practical musicianship/theory/performance etc.). Generally speaking GCSE is roughly about grade 4ish standard at ABRSM.

GCSE is certainly do-able at home but it would be a good idea to have some supervision from someone who knows the course. My daughters both did GCSE Music at home with me - it took them about 3 months each.
A level is a much higher level (there's a bit of a jump in between) and you would probably need to get on a course for that.

Good luck.
