Music learning combines listening, performing and composing activities. These activities, developed sequentially, enhance students’ capacity to perceive and understand music.

As students progress in their study of Music, they learn to value and appreciate the power of music to transform the heart, soul, mind and spirit of the individual. In this way students develop an aesthetic appreciation and enjoyment of music.​

Learning and teaching support


The Music curriculum aims to develop students’:

  • confidence to be creative, innovative, thoughtful, skilful and informed musicians
    skills to listen, improvise, compose, interpret, perform, and respond with intent and purpose
  • aesthetic knowledge and respect for music and music practices across global communities, cultures and musical traditions
  • understanding of music as an aural art form, its relationship with other arts forms  and contributions to cultures and societies.
