Teaching and Learning activities
Across Music Style and Composition Units 1-4 it is essential that students listen to, study and respond to music in a diverse range of styles, traditions, genres. E-journals are a useful way to track this linking. Students can post entries that identify for example the title, composer/creator, style and instrumentation of a work and include analysis/evaluation of the treatment of elements of music and use of compositional devices.
Music Style and Composition Unit 1
In this unit students explore diverse music styles, traditions and practices. The learning program should include material that is familiar to students as well as material that is unfamiliar. For Outcome 2 students must study at least three distinct styles including music that is not from the Western art music or popular repertoires. A graphic organiser that combines information about when and where music being studied was composed and/or performed could be used to track the range of music students study in this unit.
