L2 Music - Semester A
Teacher in Charge: Mr G. McLarin
Level 2 Music - Baby You Were Born To Run
At Level 2 you will be continuing to develop your skills as a Musician and Songwriter, as well as explore music on a New Zealand scale. By learning and demonstrating practical skills in music creation, performance, and research, you will develop a deeper connection and understanding of the music you listen to, as well as how it functions interacts within a more global context. Study in music requires passion, commitment and self-motivation, which are not only the skills required to follow a career in the Performing Arts, but skills that will serve you well in all aspects of life.
First, we will be focussed on song writing and developing performance skills as a group. This is all work that is preparing us for the competitions that we enter during Term Two.
Next, we put all of our work into practice. We perform at Rockquest early in Term 2, and then move to recording and entering our songs into Play it Strange. As well as this, there will be in school performances, and the chance to perform in the school production.
Contributions and Equipment/Stationery
Access to an instrument at home is a great bonus for this course. While you can do it without, you will make even more progress if you can continue your practice out of the classroom environment.
