Have you found someone who can offer you both courses?
have you checked with uni courses you are interested in as to whether they will accept them as two different A levels? They may be too similar.

Yes, it's possible. Although music appears in the title for both, the curriculums are quite different. Music is more academic, theory biased, with wide historical content and solo performance is grade 7 to 8 standard or above if you aspire to A or A* achievement.

Music technology concentrates on recording, production and sound reinforcement techniques. It is biased to technology with composition accomplished through synthesis and heavily reliant on computer software.

University music courses will accept both. However, do check if you intend to go down the degree route, your intended degree may not accept both as satisfying course entry requirements for two subjects.

For instance, music, music tech' and physics as a-level choices, will not get you onto an engineering degree.

I haven't asked my school yet, and I also haven't really considered Uni yet either. However, thank you for making this aware to me, as I wouldn't have thought about it otherwise.
