Music Performance 400 (AMP400)

Students say...

Year 10 music is a great experience to become more confident in your performance skills as well as learning more about the theory side of music, this class had a good balance of learning these new topics and prac time. During the prac we had a lot of freedom to choose any type of musical performance, which then made the subject a lot more fun.  - Zoe Wright


It was a very interesting subject learning about the notes and how they work when doing your own task on the music you like.  - Blake Ward
