Year 10 Music - Theory

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Wigram

This is a practical course focusing on a mix of music theory and notation, composition, practical music on a chosen instrument. The modules in Year 10 are streamlined to allow students to take music in Year 11 and look at the following:

Module 1: Film Music - this comprises examining why music is important in movies, how do we create the music, composing music for a movie clip and visiting the cinema to watch the chosen composer for the unit.

Module 2: Practical music - this module runs throughout the course and students have the opportunity to take part in instrumental workshops with specialist teachers. Students perform as part of a group and as an individual.

Module 4: Composition - using technology and notation software to create music. We use GarageBand and Sibelius and students learn other methods in addition to this. 

Module 4: Music notation introducing key Level 1 ideas, understanding how the brain works with music - this runs throughout the course. Both classical and contemporary methods are used in class.
