Level 2 Music

12MUS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr E. Mc Intyre

MUSIC – YEAR 12
NCEA LEVEL 2
CODE: 12MUS

Music incorporates many different kinds of learning including confidence-building, language skills and creative self-expression. The music created and studied at Kelston Boys High School reflects our rich traditions and modern culture.
The aim of the music department is to serve the school and our community, so all learners are expected to perform and participate in regular public performances in and around the school.
The Senior music programme has a practice and research focus. Learners are expected to manage themselves and work independently and collaboratively. Private tuition (including professional lessons, home-based lessons, church-based tuition etc.) will give music learners a major advantage.

Planned Total Credits Offered 20
