L2MUS

Music Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss L. Pascariu


This course is a continuation from Level 1 Music. You will continue to focus on performance skills, composition, and music theory, with the addition of the instrumentation standard. There are two optional extra standards – “Investigate an aspect of New Zealand music” and “Perform a substantial piece of music as a featured soloist on a second instrument”.  You will continue working on your understanding of music theory and sit one external examination at the end of the year. This course is flexible with the ability to choose which pieces you would like to do for performances as well as how you would like to compose your own music – e.g. through traditional notation methods, using music software such as Garageband or songwriting with lyrics and chords. Students can create their own songs in groups or as an individual which can count towards both the composition and performance standards.
