Throughout S2, students are looking to further develop the skills learnt during S1.   There are also more opportunities for students to use analytical and creative skills by composing.  The students will complete the following units of work:-

  • Keyboard
  • Film Music
  • Band Unit
  • Swing Drumming
  • Class Performances

Students will become more reflective of their own progress and will have the opportunity to tailor their own progress by specialising on instruments of their choice in the latter half of the year.  Whilst the majority of the curriculum is practical work there is still the need to learn music notation, especially if a student wishes to study music past S2.

We are very proud of the vast extra-curricular programme our department has to offer.  There are many performances throughout the year of which your son/daughter can participate if they wish to join one of our ensembles.
