Senior Music Specialism in Semester One...

In support of our VCE Music subjects like Music Performance and VET Music Industry, our focus in Senior Music specialism in Semester One was on developing ensemble skills including experimenting with arrangement ideas that complement our unique class instrumentation. This included creating arrangements whereby we recreated harmony singing from original recordings, or invented our own harmonies in some pieces. Some works chosen by the students were deceptively challenging and we hope you enjoy seeing and hearing the quality of their playing and singing. - Jake Johnson, Senior Music specialism teacher

Intermediate Music Specialism in Semester One...

Intermediate Music specialism studied works from the Soul, RnB and Hip Hop genres of the last 70 years. Technical work, solo and ensemble performances gave us the opportunity to look deeply into the unique rhythms, arrangements, tone colours, expressive skills, and song writing styles of these influential genres. These performances feature four medleys of our work over the semester.

We hope you enjoy it! - Jake Johnson, Intermediate Music specialism teacher

Junior Music Specialism in Semester One...

In Semester One, the Year 7 and 8 students in Junior Music specialism focused on developing knowledge on composition/songwriting as well as developing musicianship skills. The theory focus in the class was on how to sing, write and understand key signatures, majors scales and chord progressions. Using our knowledge on chord progressions and major scales, students have used digital programs such as Garageband to experiment, compose and record musical ideas. For Showcase this semester, the class prepared cover songs to perform as a group. In Term 2, we spent time practicing and communicating with each other during rehearsal. Throughout the semester, we conducted performance workshops to adapt students with playing in front of an audience, and we learnt how to provide constructive feedback to our peers and to reflect on our practice. - Wynne Djunaidy, Junior Music specialism teacher
