Drouin Secondary College - Course Selection

11 VCE Music Performance (11AMP1)

The Course

Units 1 and 2 of Music Performance build and expand performance skills. This is done through practical studies on selected instruments, technical studies related to the art of performing, music theory, aural skills and written analysis. Students will undertake private tuition for their chosen instrument and prepare performances for teachers, peers and parents, culminating in an assessed performance at the end of each unit. Students will study theory, both written and aural, during classes as well as develop vocabulary and analytical skills for responding to musical excerpts.


The maturity level of topics studied will be appropriate for students aged 16 and above.
