Unit description:

The aural component of this unit introduces students to the fundamental music vocabulary and notation reading skills including rhythmic, intervallic and triadic chordal recognition. Tonality will be restricted to major keys. It aims to develop and increase rhythmic and aural awareness and fluency in reading, through sight singing, rhythmic drill and performing and notating music in a variety of contemporary musical styles. The ensemble component of this unit assists students in developing interpersonal communication and personal responsibility skills necessary for successfully working together to achieve common goals in a creative music environment. The unit also provides opportunities for developing ensemble rehearsal and performance skills in musical expression, improvisation, internal pulse, intonation awareness and accompaniment sensitivity.
