A. Programme Overview

The GEXIP are created especially for international students. For over years, we have worked with schools and teachers worldwide to develop syllabuses that are suitable for different countries, different types of schools and for learners with a wide range of abilities. Our Programme is accepted through a progression agreement accepted by various institution of higher education, universities worldwide as providing proof of musical skills, knowledge and understanding.

This syllabus offers students the opportunity to develop their own practical musical skills through the Hitmaker concept i.e. LIVE (Performance), STAR (Production), FAME (Artist Development) and MAKE (Management and Entrepreneurship). The programme offers both contemporary and classical learning which includes their listening skills by studying music from the main historical periods and styles of Western music as well as from selected non-Western traditions. The emphasis within the syllabus is as much on developing lifelong musical skills as on acquiring knowledge.

Learners studying GEXIP are given the opportunity to:

  • listen to and learn about music from our global award winning lecturers and REAL industry practitioners;
  • develop their skills in performing music, both individually and in a group with other musicians
  • develop their skills in composing music in a style of their own choice.

Our programmes balance a thorough knowledge and understanding of a subject and help to develop the skills learners need for their next steps in education or employment.
