Subject Description

The Year 10 Music course focuses on defining and developing an in depth understanding of the elements of music. Students will spend time analysing music from a range of different genres and ethnicities and exploring the music’s cultural and social contexts. Students will engage in regular performance music sessions and will learn about different music technologies. It is expected that students will be prepared to perform music in front of their peers and take up opportunities to perform for school concerts, Mahi Toi, Rockquest or chamber group performances. They will have opportunities to create music and will reflect on the effectiveness of their own and other’s compositions and performances and be encouraged to enter song writing competitions such as NZ Caritas.
