9 Making Music

Music is an integral part of all cultures from the earliest of times, expressing and reflecting human experience. Music learning requires students’ active engagement in the practices of listening, performing and composing. An education in Music encourages the ability to coordinate both creative and critical thinking skills to achieve set goals. During Year 9, students work towards their ability to:

  • interpret, rehearse and perform solo and ensemble repertoire in a range of forms and styles
  • demonstrate a developing personal voice and technical control, expression and stylistic understanding
  • use general listening and specific aural skills to enhance their performances and use knowledge of the elements of music, style and notation to compose, document and share their music
  • aurally and visually analyse works and performances of different styles
  • evaluate the use of elements of music and defining characteristics from different musical styles
  • use their understanding of music making in different cultures, times and places to inform and shape their interpretations, performances and compositions
