10MUS

Year 10 Music

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Chuck

Music students work individually and collaboratively to explore the potential of sounds and technologies for creating, interpreting, performing and representing music ideas.

In Year 10, students will:

  • choose an instrument to learn (drums, guitar, bass, keyboard/piano, voice) and will participate in free lessons for that instrument each week. They will perform individually to the rest of the class and in a group at prizegiving.
  • compose music as an individual using various technologies
  • create, perform and record a song in a group
  • develop music reading and writing skills
  • learn about various styles of music.

NOTE: Students must commit to practising their instrument at least four times a week outside of class time. It is vital that a student has learned an instrument or sung for at least one year before taking NCEA Level 1 Music.
