Music Teacher – Mr M Harrison
The music IB MYP curriculum, which we follow from Year 7 through to Year 8, is ideal for developing thoughtful and enquiring minds. The IB MYP allows for a rigorous, yet creative, approach to learning that will enable students to ask questions of the world around them, as well as answering them, and to develop into researchers who are aware of the importance of critical analysis of the information around them.
Schedule of Learning Y7
Students are taught 1 lesson per week. Here is a summary of the topics covered in Year 7.
- Modules 1-3: Unit 3 – Making Arrangements (Melody, Harmony and Rhythm)
- Modules 4-6: Unit 4 – Feelin’ Blue (Blues and Jazz)
Year 7 Resources
Students will have individual classrooms for their music teacher, where homework may be set. It will be important that students are regularly checking these for updates.
This will provide students with access to information about the course, deadlines, useful links and websites, as well as revision resources such as knowledge organisers.
These are created for each unit of the IB MYP course, and are a summary of the topics covered. Students are encouraged to use these for revision purposes throughout the year in preparation for their Criterion A assessments.
