Year 9 & 10
As boys enter Years 9 and 10 the music course structure continues to build on the skills and content delivered in Middle School. While boys may choose to not select the Music or Music Extension courses in all year levels of the Middle Years Programme, it is highly recommended that those students considering taking music classes in Years 11 and 12 enroll in one of the Year 10 music courses.
Year 11 & 12
Boys who choose to continue classroom music in Years 11 and 12 have two main options; the WACE or IB Diploma course. Both courses contain a variety of pathways. Students studying WACE Music can do so via an ATAR or non-ATAR (General) course though a class-agreed context. The context may be chosen from Western Art Music, Jazz or Contemporary Music. The four components of the WACE course include Performance on any instrument, Aural and Theory, Composition and Arranging, and Investigation and Analysis.
The IB Diploma course can be taken at a Higher or Standard Level and involves; performance on an instrument; the Investigation and Analysis of music from different musical cultures; and Composition and Arranging.
