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 and a half year program allows students to develop advanced skills, in a challenging atmosphere, with other like minded musicians. Students enrol for a two and a half 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.
Students visually and aurally analyse music by deconstructing musical elements, and making connections with style, context and genre.
