Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs F. Wilson

This course continues to develop skills introduced in NCEA Level 1 standards for solo and group performance, composition, instrumentation, aural and score-reading, and analysis of music works. These standards are integrated to develop student's musicianship in a holistic way.
