Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Duncan

Level 1 Music 

This course is awesome. It will be based around learning to perform music and creating your own.

This course takes a 'hands on' practical approach to learning music. The assessments are built around music composition and performance. 

In composition students learn to create their own music - from songs to symphonies.

In performance students learn an instrument and perform in both solo and group situations.

Music history and theory are woven into the learning.

A genuine desire to create, re-create and appreciate music.  Students are encouraged to be learning an instrument or voice.  This course is designed to heighten musical awareness in students and sharpen musical skills with the emphasis on practical music making.
