Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms V. Le Cren

Recommended Prior Learning

Year 12 Music. At least 4 years music tuition and the ability to read music confidently, or HOD approval by interview. 


This Music course is underpinned by the four arts strands:

  • Understanding the arts in context
  • Developing practical knowledge in the arts
  • Developing ideas in the arts
  • Communicating and interpreting in the arts

These strands identify the skills, knowledge, and understandings that students develop through learning in the arts and are intertwined.

13 Music gives students an opportunity to build on the knowledge and skills gained in the 12 Music course. Students will work individually and collaboratively to create, interpret and represent music ideas. They will continue to develop literacies in music and communicate musically with increasing sophistication.

The objectives of the course are that students will:

  • be empowered to develop theoretical and practical skills and knowledge and actively make connections between them.
  • plan and perform their own music and the music of others, in an individual capacity or in groups
  • compose music
  • show understanding of music by identifying, describing, analysing and classifying music in different contexts
