Music GCSEs

I am going to be picking my GCSEs soon and I already know what I plan on picking but I wanted to know a bit about Music GCSEs. I play piano and flute, so would I be able to use both for my performances?
I also play flute and piano and I'm in my first year of GCSEs :smile: I'm using my main instrument (flute) for performances, but it might depend on which exam board. I do Edexcel, which are you doing?

I would also be doing Edexcel.

You do two performances, (one solo and one ensemble), so you could use piano for one and flute for another, but you couldn’t use both instruments in the same performance :smile:

ok thank you. I was worried I would have to pick between them.

I don't think so :frown:

I am doing WJEC/Eduqas. However, you can do Piano and Singing together. The singing will give you extra credit. That's about it with two instruments.
