This course further develops a student’s musicianship, while allowing students to tailor their courses to their own interests and strengths in music. All areas of music are encouraged from traditional “classical” training through to rock and jazz. Year 13 Music is ideal for students wishing to study aspects of music at tertiary level; at university, technical institute or any of the wide variety of performing arts courses that are being offered.

Ten Achievement Standards are offered at Level 3 making 50 credits. They are divided into two subject areas: Making Music and Music Studies. Students may study standards from just one subject area, both subject areas or any combination of standards selected from both.

Students who study performance standards are required to attend instrument lessons outside of timetabled class time. Students who study composition, arrangement, aural or harmony are required to attend a weekly tutorial outside of timetabled class time.
