Welcome to Music
Music at Kavanagh is a thriving and exciting area. The Music teachers are skilled and passionate about their subject. Years 7, 8 and 9 have a 2 term semester with 4 periods of music per fortnight. Music is an Optional subject from Year 9. The Year 10 option is a 1 year course developing all aspects of music. Students get 5 periods of music per fortnight and those who have shown appropriate aptitude have the opportunity gain Level 1 credits in performance.
At all stages students work on composing, performing and appreciating music.
This is a practical subject with many opportunities to learn new skills and develop existing ones. We have a well-resourced department and students are taught to use music software and a range of instruments from Y7. Music is a subject developing the creative and social elements at which all students can achieve.
Students have access to free instrumental lessons within school time and a wide range of extra-curricular activities to take part in at all levels.
