Music is an activity in which all people can participate. Additional Study Courses in Music (formerly known as Elective Music) build on musical experiences students have had in the early part of secondary school.
In years 9 and 10, Music involves students in performing music, creating and writing their own music and listening to and discussing a variety of styles of music. Through these activities students gain an understanding of the style and structure of music and some knowledge of music history. Topics are very diverse e.g. popular music, Australian music, music for radio, film and TV, classical music and many others. The course is centred on "doing" music rather than "learning about music". While it is not essential, it is suggested that students receive some individual tuition as performance is a compulsory aspect of this course and all students are required to perform as part of their assessment.
Goulburn High School, in partnership with the Goulburn Regional Conservatorium are offering individual tuition. Fees apply and enquiries should be made to the Music department
Fee:$20 per year.
