Intermediate Music 7, version 01 (Print)


The Intermediate Music program (Grade 4-7) focuses on key aspects of music, from singing and playing, reading and writing, to movement and performance. There are seven modules in the course. Each of the first six modules integrates the different skills the students will learn throughout the program, including vocal music, music history, playing the recorder, reading music and dance. In the final module the student reviews the concepts learned and prepares for a performance. For more course information, please go to the Intermediate Music Features Page.

Unless students have a previous music background, they should begin with Module 1. Students will have to purchase their own recorder for the course.
