Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Bodman
This is a practical based course giving students the opportunity to build on principles learnt in Year 9 and to explore in greater depth the concepts of performance, composition and reading music. Students will play in a band or small group and musical theory is reinforced through practical sessions.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to explore a variety of instruments with a view to specialising on one instrument through senior school and NCEA.
Students selecting this subject must learn a musical instrument or voice either privately or through the College Itinerant system. Students will learn in small groups of similar ability from total beginners to experienced players.
Some instruments are available to hire – cost to hire is between $100-$150 per year.
