Course Overview

Term 1
Y13 students are in charge of their own planning. Because our school is small music students are offered a variety of standards. It is up to each student to map their year out. The teacher is their to guide their programme if needed.

Performance and arrangement is very popular in the first term. Performance is a big workload in Y13. The girls are encouraged to practise in class time as well as in their own time.

There is the opportunity to sit NZQA scholarship music as well.

Term 2
Opportunity for ensemble coaching is also available at this level and in class.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Access to instruments of choice.


Recommended Prior Learning

It is recommended that students have learnt an instrument with a private teacher since Y9.  However, studying classroom music from Y10 is recommended for students to be successful in Y11, Y12, and Y13.
