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.
