Musical Styles

Students acquire awareness and appreciation of music by studying individual works and their composers, listening to music, analysing, and discussing.

They study one or more set of works in a historical and cultural context, and analyse the work or works using a score, transcription, chart, and/or recording.

Students communicate their knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of musical style in writing.
