L1MUSC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Bodman

This course provides students with a comprehensive programme developing the student as a holistic musician. 

Students will perform in both solo and group contexts, compose music, develop listening and score reading skills, and study music works and their contexts. Many elements of this course will incorporate Music and Sound technology.

Students will be assessed to a selection of Music Achievement Standards. Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards.



MUSIC – CO-CURRICULAR L1, L2, L3

The option to be assessed on additional music performance credits is available to students who either perform in music department extra-curricular activities or take music as a subject. 

This assessment will be made available only at the end of Term 3. It is expected that students who choose these standards will be preparing their performances in their own time. This option involves access to the following credits:
