12 Music Studies

Course Description

In Music Studies you will investigate and analyse two substantial contrasting music works. Skills attained during the analysis of these pieces will assist in the development of your score reading and conventions skills. Aural skills require you to notate music and to listen carefully and explain how music is constructed. The instrumentation task requires you to take an existing piece of music and develop it for an ensemble.

You may have the opportunity to add some performance credits if negotiated with your teacher. The course allows you to gain subject endorsement of merit or excellence.
