As part of the school’s release from face (RFF) to face program, every child at Wahroonga attends one 40 minute music session each week. Music is explored at school by focussing on 5 ways of producing sound:
· Pitch – how high or low
· Tempo – how fast or slow
· Dynamics – how loud or soft
· Duration – how long or short
· Tone colour – how different
All students are given opportunities to play a variety of un-tuned and tuned musical percussion instruments. Simple notation is taught using graphic notation and standard musical notation. Music appreciation forms a large component of this program.
