The Bathgate-born star will host a Classic FM programme aimed at helping students to revise for their exams.
Capaldi, 22, who topped the UK chart with Someone You Loved, will play pieces from Mozart to Beethoven.
He will also talk about the challenges and stress that students face in the run-up to exams.
The singer-songwriter said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be hosting a revision show for Classic FM.
“Definitely could’ve used some advice like this a couple of years back when I was doing my exams.
“Anyone tuning into the show can expect lots of lovely sensual classical music delivered by my extremely handsome dulcet tones, with some tips from people far more qualified than me, which isn’t difficult.”
The eight-part weekly series coincides with exam season and will air on Saturday nights with music chosen to help students concentrate.
