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 7 projects:

  1.  Hooks and Riffs
  2. Offbeat 
  3. Variations 
  4. Jazz and Improvisation 
  5. Bass Lines 
  6. Saharan Sounds 
  7. Refugees and Music Theatre 

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.
