Music Appreciation is offered as a one-marking-period course. It is divided into several areas designed to introduce students to various components and styles of music.
The areas include instruments of the orchestra, the rudiments of music, and an overview of music history. Music and related careers and multicultural music will also be examined.
Throughout the course, students will participate in a variety of hands-on experiences that are designed to enhance their understanding of these areas.
By the end of the course students will have had the opportunity to learn and develop skills that will assist them in enjoying music and making informed decisions about their music and musical listening activities.
