2 Music Industry (2MUS2)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Hannan

This course will combine senior Level 2 and 3 music and will follow on from the Music Industry in 2020.  Learners can continue their course from Semester 1 to take a full-year Music course, or they can also pick this course up in Semester 2 in discussion with the Learning Area Leader. 

All learners will have the opportunity to develop their performance skills as they rehearse and perform for both solo and group. At Level 2 learners will devise an instrumentation for an ensemble and investigate an aspect of New Zealand music while at Level 3 learners will create arrangements for an ensemble and research a music topic. Both levels will also have the chance to focus on Music Technology if this is where their passion lies.
