Music is a fundamental form of expression that we are all engaged in, whether as a listener or as musician. By making, sharing, and responding to music, students contribute to the cultural life of our school, whanau, and community.
Students work individually and collaboratively to explore the world of sound for creating, interpreting and representing music ideas, and have rich opportunities to further their own creative potential. As they learn to communicate musically with increasing sophistication during their time at school, they lay a foundation for a lifelong enjoyment of and participation in music.
For some this will result in further study at a Tertiary level, and for others their lives will be forever enriched through greater skill and confidence in their recreational musical experiences.
There are four strands in Music:
- Understanding Context
- Developing Ideas
- Communicating & Interpreting
- Practical Knowledge
