AMU - Grade 9 Music
Teacher: Ms. Leonard
This course emphasizes building musical skills and techniques that allow students to progress from beginner musicians to being capable of playing full songs within the context of a concert band. By the end of this course students will have musical knowledge that will allow them to succeed in any ensemble at school and play interesting repertoire on their own. Students with previous experience are also welcome in this course and are encouraged to choose a new instrument or set personal goals to keep making progress throughout the semester. Students will also study theory and music history to gain basic insight into musical compositions they play and listen to.
