This class is designed for students at the junior level who are serious about music, but not yet wanting to sit NCEA assessments. Ideally, you should already have your own instrument, and be taking lessons (either privately or through the school itinerant program). In this class we will be looking at developing a range of musical skills - including how to practice your instrument (to maximise your musical potential!), how to learn music by ear, how to sight-read, and how to compose your own songs. Some of this block will involve taking part in a whole-class ensemble (working towards a performance).
