Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Stanbridge

Recommended Prior Learning

Level 2 music requires students to be in their 4th year of itinerant (or equivalent) music lessons on their chosen instrument.


Sound from natural, acoustic, and digital environments is the source material for expressive ideas in music. These ideas are manipulated and extended into forms, genres, and styles that are recognised as music. Music is a fundamental form of expression, both personal and cultural. Value is placed upon the musical heritages of New Zealand’s diverse cultures, including traditional and contemporary Māori musical arts. In music education, students work individually and collaboratively to explore the potential of sounds and technologies for creating, interpreting, and representing musical ideas. As they think about and explore innovative sound and media, students have rich opportunities to further their own creative potential.
