This course is a fun and varied music class, designed for students working at level 4 of the New Zealand Curriculum. It is designed to introduce students to fundamental musical concepts, and open up the fun and rewarding world of studying and playing music. In this class we will be studying music from a range of genres, from classical to jazz and heavy metal, and looking at how music is put together. We will also be singing, playing a range of instruments, banging drums, listening, watching and performing. There will be a mix of self directed and LA directed projects.
You will need a device (preferably a laptop) to complete the requirements of this course, as we will be using online resources for some of the practical aspects of this course. It would also help if you have a musical instrument, however this is not compulsory!
This course will be co-taught by Matt and Shaun.
