Music subjects from 2018

The SACE Board has a cycle of subject monitoring, review, and renewal to ensure that students have access to a relevant, contemporary, quality senior secondary education.  As part of this cycle, in 2016 work began on the review and renewal of Stage 1 Music, and of the eight Stage 2 Music subjects.

From this work, the following subject outlines have been drafted for:

  • Stage 1 Music
  • Stage 2 Music Expressions
  • Stage 2 Music Explorations
  • Stage 2 Music Performance

It is proposed that these subjects replace the current Stage 1 and Stage 2 Music subjects.

Consultation

The redeveloped draft Stage 1 and Stage 2 subject outlines are now available for consultation. These drafts are in one document, which can be downloaded and feedback provided via the online feedback form.

The consultation drafts will be available online from:
