Level 3 Music

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms E. Steedman

Recommended Prior Learning

Year 12 Music course or with approval from the HOD Music.

As in earlier levels, students are encouraged to identify the aspects of Music which interest and motivate them the most, and to then choose standards to encourage learning and development in those areas. Dependent on the chosen focus, students may continue to develop their creative thinking in composition, or engage in an independent research topic in a area of interest. In the past, some students have conducted ensembles, composed music for film, composed songs for a musical, performed to a high level on their instrument, researched matters of music therapy or jazz singing - the possibilities are endless.

Students will meet with HOLA Music to plan their coursework and standards for the year.  Students are encouraged to take between 14 and 26 credits depending on their interests, strengths, future pathways and overall workload.  

Students may focus on performance, creating music or musicology.
