L2 Music - Semester B

Course Description

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.

We will start by focusing on both of your solo performances, and a Music research project based around a New Zealand topic.

We finish our year off with the annual Music and Drama Awards.
