Year 9 Music is a core subject for three periods per week for one term of the year.
WHAT THE COURSE WILL COVER:
This course covers some of the fundamental musical skills that the students need for Year 10 Music and beyond. These include: practical skills on guitar and keyboard, theoretical and contextual knowledge, aural skills and musical notation.
METHODS OF LEARNING:
WHERE DOES THE SUBJECT LEAD:
Music can be taken at all levels of the school. Core Year 9 Music prepares students for the Year 10 Music option.
Lessons are available through the school on a variety of instruments. However, individual Guitar lessons do not start until Year 10, as Guitar is covered as part of the Year 9 curriculum. There is a range of instruments available for students to hire.
Once a student has reached the appropriate level, they are encouraged to participate in one or more of the many school performance groups.
