3 Music Industry (3MUS)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Hannan

This course will combine senior Level 2 and 3 music and will follow on from Performance Media and Music Industry in 2020. 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.


** The range of unit and assessment Standards on offer are listed below; however, will be dependent on a learner’s area of passion, experience and progress throughout the course. Standards for assessment will be identified in conjunction with the learner and Teacher in Charge.
