In Year 7, students are given opportunities to apply their music skills and knowledge when performing, composing and listening to music. They also develop a further understanding of aural skills and aural memory to identify, sing/play and transcribe music, and make connections between sound and notation.
They are supported to use the elements of music, invented and conventional notation and music terminology, to record and communicate music ideas.
Students are provided with opportunities to participate in listening, analysis and score reading activities, focusing on the use of the elements of music and key stylistic features.
Students practise, rehearse and perform a range of music in solo and ensemble activities to develop technical skills and an increasing awareness of musical expression.
As performers and audience members, they are encouraged to express their thoughts and feelings about music, personal preferences and the reasons for them.
Music learning is aurally based and is integrated across all aspects of the written component of the subject through a selected context/s. The performance component reinforces and extends music learning, and can be delivered in a different context to the written component. The elements of music are to be integrated across all areas of music learning as appropriate to context.
