Stage 2 Music Performance — Solo is a 10‑credit subject that consists of the following strands:

  • understanding music
  • performing music
  • responding to music.

The strands in Music Performance — Solo are interconnected and not intended to be taught independently. Students develop and extend their musical skills and techniques in creating their own solo performances. They interpret their chosen musical works, and apply to their performances an understanding of the style, structure, and conventions appropriate to their repertoire.

Students extend their musical literacy through discussing key musical elements of their chosen repertoire, and interpreting creative works. Students express their musical ideas through performing, critiquing, and evaluating their performances.
