This task IS for Summer 2011!

Potential students on the either of the 2 BTEC Music courses should prepare EITHER:

A short performance, played on an instrument or sung. A backing track may be used if desired. It might be an original song you have written, or an existing piece of music. You may wish to self-accompany, e.g. sing and play guitar. You may borrow a school instrument or microphone to perform, but you should check in advance that it is available.


A short composition, produced using music production software, e.g. Garageband or Logic Pro on a Mac, or Fruityloops or Cubase on a PC. The file must be brought in either as an MP3 or as an audio CD. You may use pre-made loops and samples. If you do not have access to appropriate software, instead create a DJ set of 4-6 songs and be prepared to explain why you have chosen the music and why, in your opinion, it works well as a set.


Performance - Write your musical CV

Production - Research studio equipment and do a costing for this
