Students listen and respond to music and learn to create and perform music. They develop an understanding of the elements of music including rhythm, pitch, dynamics, expression, form and structure whilst developing aural skills to identify and interpret these elements. These skills are essential in making and responding to a range of music through composing and performing. Students develop ICT skills using a variety of software to record and write music.
Public performances are held to develop students’ growth as performers and to share their experiences in music with their audiences.
Students study a range of musical styles, including jazz, blues and contemporary music, and relate these to social contexts. Additional units are chosen from classical, world and Australian Indigenous music.
