Music fosters creative and expressive
communication. It allows students to develop
musicianship through making (composition
and performance) and responding
Through composition, performance and
musicology, students use and apply music
elements and concepts. They apply their
knowledge and understanding to convey
meaning and/or emotion to an audience.
Students use essential literacy skills to
engage in a multimodal world. They
demonstrate practical music skills, and
analyse and evaluate music in a variety of
contexts, styles and genres.
Schools devise assessments in Units 1 and 2 to suit their local context.
In Units 3 and 4 students complete four summative assessments. The results from each of the
assessments are added together to provide a subject score out of 100. Students will also receive
an overall subject result (A–E).
