L3MUS

Music Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss L. Pascariu

Students at Level 3 Music get to choose which standards they would like to complete. There are a range of standards to choose from to suit each students interests and strengths. These include performing as an individual or a group, studying music works of varying styles and eras or creating your own original music. 

The components of Music studied at Level 2 will be further developed in Level 3 Music. A high level of skill is expected to be displayed. In particular, students need to have competent skills in performance, theory, composition and be able to play an instrument at a high standard. Due to the flexibility of the course, students will be required to be self directed and motivated learners.

At the start of the year, students will learn about the requirements of all standards on offer and spend time carefully selecting which would be best for them, as well as planning their deadlines for the year. Students will create their own course consisting of 18 - 26 credits from the standards. All deadlines are negotiated with the teacher.

Refer to the "assessment details" section for more information on which standards are available to choose from.
