Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms P. Sherry

Aim  To develop composition skills and create three pieces of music.

In this course you will learn the skills and knowledge required to compose music in varying styles and to arrange existing music. Through this you can develop your own individual compositional style. You will also develop skills in using different modes of technology to write and record your musical ideas. You can create music either individually or in groups with other students within the class.  You will  learn to critique through modeling others compositions and peer evaluation of your own compositions. It is expected that students will develop skills in all areas but will complete between 8 and 12 credits for assessment. 

Not all skills taught will be assessed
