Music

Musci

Students at Koondrook use voice, body percussion, untuned percussion, keyboard, xylophone and GarageBand on their computers to make music. They are involved in singing, warm ups, drama, and recording their musical creations. Music lessons are taken with Mrs. Angie Jones.

Younger students learn about pitch, rhythm, tone color, beat and melody. In the middle years we focus more on practicing songs for performance, writing lyrics, reading percussion music, working in partners and small groups to dance or create music. In the senior years, students study musical genres, and are asked to compose their own musical pieces on the computer using GarageBand. Students add voice, drum, keyboard, guitar and other instruments that are pre-programmed into GarageBand.
