Lower Secondary Music

The benefits of studying Lower Secondary Music

Our Lower Secondary Music course will help your child develop an understanding of different genres of Music (waltz, samba, raga, classical, baroque, rock and pop), as well as learn about music from different cultures and films.

Your child will also have opportunities to create Music individually, as well as deepen their knowledge of music theory. This all-encompassing course is an exciting addition to our existing Lower Secondary courses.

We can’t begin to thank you enough for everything! We started this journey with a lot of trepidation and uncertainty. Not knowing anyone personally who has actually homeschooled their children made the entire experience all the more daunting. However, we found the structure and content of work at Wolsey Hall very straightforward and easy to follow. This entire experience has made Haroon take ownership of his learning and be a lot more involved in his studies. This journey was definitely made a lot easier by having you as our Progress Manager! The communication on your side has always been fantastic and you’ve always been so prompt with your replies which made everything so much easier!
