Sessions

Composition

2 hours

This session focuses on the core composition element in Music course 2. This component, worth 15%, is a stumbling block for many students and some teachers.
In this session, common errors will be addressed and related issues discussed.
Much of the time will be taken up with an interactive creation of a model composition.

Repertoire, Score reading and extended response

2 hours

In this session, a variety of Australian pieces composed in the last 25 years will be examined and strategies for their successful inclusion in the extended response question will be discussed. A score sample booklet will be avai8lable to take away with details of where the whole score and recording may be purchased for classroom use (usually via the Australian Music Centre)

sight singing and dictation

1 hour

An interactive session exploring these skill requirements at HSC level and best practice teaching for them. A copy of Jim Coyle’s Sight Singing exercises will be given to each participant to keep.
This part of the session will take about 40 minutes. The remaining 20 minutes is reserved for questions and reflection.

What To Bring
