Along with continued skill building on both chosen instruments with solo and ensemble performance, pupils will further their musical appreciation learning many musical concepts through a large variety of styles and genres.

Term 3:

Along with continued skill building on both chosen instruments with solo and ensemble performance, pupils will further their musical appreciation learning all about “The Music of Scotland” and begin much more detailed compositions.

Term 4:

Pupils will again continue to skill build on both chosen instruments with solo and ensemble performance, and then make their decision, along with guidance from their music teacher, whether to continue with their musical studies into their third year.
