Year 9 Music

Course Title

Year 9 Music


Year 9 music builds on the skills you developed in Year 8. Students who have received private tuition or experimented with guitar, ukulele and keyboard will continue to increase their performance proficiency and skill in this area. Those who are keen to branch out, can elect to take on an orchestral instrument such as flute, clarinet, trumpet or saxophone. This course enables students to perform pieces of music both as an ensemble and individually, whilst simultaneously improving their compositional and aural knowledge and ability. Students will be permitted to work on individually chosen pieces, linked directly to their own passions and interests, whilst also having the opportunity to delve into and learn about a vast array of different musical styles and genres. Those who show interest will be welcomed to participate in College performance opportunities, including preparing the national anthem and items for events or assemblies.
