In terms of music, it is perfectly possible to practice at a top level and balance the IB curriculum. Indeed, you will be credited for this work in your CAS experience.
Note: To say that A-levels are more academic is a fundamental misunderstanding. I've taught both A-level and IB physics, and the IB course is far and away more involved and more demanding (although the gap has narrowed with the new A-level syllabuses), but also more interesting.
