MUS301

Level 3 Music

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: N. Baldwin


There are two courses available in Music at level 3: Making Music and Music Studies. A student taking Music as a subject at level 3 may form their own combination of standards for an individualized programme, selecting from either option. They are expected to attempt about 24 credits from a combination of the two courses. Each individualized programme must be approved by the subject teachers in the first week of the course. To be eligible for subject endorsement, at least one of the externals should be attempted.

MUSIC ACADEMY – DOUBLE MUSIC
It is possible for a student to enrol in music as a double subject, having 2 periods a day timetabled for music. Entry to the Music Academy is on the basis of considerable success at level 2 and needs to be approved by the HOD. Students presenting themselves for double music need to attempt at least 40 credits from the two music options available. One period a day will be largely self-directed, working on composition, research, arranging and performing. The other will be more in a lecture setting, concentrating on the other standards. This course is ideal for those intending to embark on a Bachelor of Music degree or full time tertiary study in music, as it covers the full range of the academic and practical aspects of music at level 3.


Recommended Prior Learning

If you are taking performance credits, you need to have about 4 years’ experience on your chosen instrument or have reached the standard that is normally attained after such a period of time. You should have normally taken (and passed) Music at level 2 to be eligible for this course. Any concession to this is at the discretion of the HOD.
