Level 2 Certificate in Performance for Music Practitioners

The RSL Certificate is an enjoyable, creative course aimed at students who wish to pursue an interest in music. The course will provide a practical, real-world approach to learning and develop specific knowledge and skills that learners will need to work successfully in the industry.

Lessons will be focussed around practical work while developing understanding of related music theory and performance techniques.


Content & Assessment:

The qualification consists of two core units plus one additional specialist units:

Core Unit – Live Music Performance - Externally Assessed

Through study of this unit, learners will engage with a full live performance project including planning, rehearsal, performance, and evaluation. The rehearsal elements of this unit are designed to develop the learner’s ability to rehearse effectively. Leaners will develop their planning, organisation, communication, and evaluation skills throughout the rehearsal process. The purpose of the unit is to prepare learners for the undertaking of a live musical performance in front of an audience.

Core Unit – Music Knowledge Development - Internally Assessed

Learners will study musical styles and the various distinctive traits that comprise them. Through study of this unit, learners will build a wider contextual and theoretical knowledge of contemporary music. This knowledge will be demonstrated through the ability to identify and analyse the key stylistic and musical elements present within contemporary music.

Additional Unit – Instrumental Study - Internally Assessed

This unit aims to enhance the learner’s capacity to understand how to maximise their development as an instrumentalist, to recognise success and to encourage improvement in areas which require further work through objective and reflective self-assessment. The purpose of this unit is to facilitate the learner’s ongoing development as an instrumentalist, based around their own goals and objectives using structured planning and reflection of personal development.

Students taking the RSL Certificate in Performance must have a basic understanding of how to play a musical instrument or be able to sing confidently and to a reasonable standard.
