During our music lessons we regularly study well known, and sometimes not so well known, musical works of composers past and present.
These studies expose students to a wide range of genre’s and classic repertoire. They also give students opportunities to explore the music and relate it to musical elements, their own artistic response, and to perform it themselves at their own level.
In 2015, our main study is of ‘The Four Seasons’ by Antonio Vivaldi. In term 1 we have started with the second concerto, Summer. In term 2 we will study Autumn; term 3, Winter; and in term 4, Spring. They will be studied out of order to better fit with New Zealand’s seasons as they occur during our school year.
