Year 8 Music
In music at KSGS, year 8 is all about building on the work started in year 7. The music we produce now will be more complex and demonstrate a greater understanding of musical theory.
We study 6 projects:
Autumn 1 - Baroque Music
Autumn 2 - Live Instrumental Composition to Video (Winter Journey)
Spring 1 - The Blues
Spring 2 - Traditional and Popular Indian Music
Summer 1 - Music of the Romantic Period
Summer 2 - Ensemble Performance Arrangement (Own Choice)
The topics are taught through listening tasks, performing in ensembles and alone and through composition tasks. Students have many opportunities to use departmental ICT resources - Sibelius.
