Music in Year 8 provides an opportunity to explore and play a variety of musical instruments through practical workshops and equips students with the fundamentals of music theory and history. A range of music technology is used as a part of the composition component of the course and students will enjoy the satisfaction of creating their own pieces. Students will also have the opportunity to rehearse and perform songs as a class and in small groups. This course caters for students of all ability levels and experience.
Instrumental lessons are provided to all music students for a variety of instruments free of charge. These lessons will take place within school hours and are required to support students with the practical component of the course. If a student is already receiving lessons privately, school based instrumental lessons are not necessary.
Participation in group composition tasks, performances, tests and written assignments using IBMYP criteria and aligned with the Australian curriculum.
