Advanced Music 12

Course Outline

Advanced Music 12 is designed for students who are considering future music study and/or careers in the music field or who plan for ongoing involvement in music, though they have chosen other career paths. The course, offered in the same classroom as Music 12, consists of compulsory music-making, music literacy, and global understandings components. Students will also be required to make a connection with someone currently working in the music field. These aspects of the course are meant to be focussed according to individual plans for future music study / careers. Students will be required to perform or compose a body of solo or small ensemble work that meets stated technical requirements, work independently to complete music literacy requirements, and complete an independent global music studies project that links directly to the focus of music in their own lives. In addition, Advanced Music 12 consists of self-directed learning projects that students will design, based on the direction that is planned for their post-secondary music involvement. In order to be considered for enrolment in the course, students must have successfully completed Advanced Music 11 or submit a portfolio that shows evidence of excellence in previous music studies and exceptional ability to complete independent and self-motivated learning projects. They must also submit a Proposal for Study portfolio within the first two weeks of the Music 12 course. The application process will involve the music teacher and guidance personnel.
