Music Extension (MEX) is specifically designed to extend students who have already developed sound music reading and performing skills throughout the primary years of education.
This exciting two year program allows students to develop advanced skills, in a challenging atmosphere, with other like minded musicians. Students enrol for a full 2 year course and are required to participate in a school extra-curricular music ensemble.
Music Extension involves creative performance opportunities that involve full class performances, small group and solo performances. Students develop skills in a variety of instruments (including guitar and keyboard), as well as voice.
Students participate in a singing based aural program (Kodaly) to develop advanced musicianship skills. An e-learning website is also used to develop aural skills.
Students visually and aurally analyse music by deconstructing musical elements, and making connections with style, context and genre.
