IB Music

Group 6 HL Course

IB Music is a two-year course for juniors and seniors in our International Baccalaureate program. It meets after school to allow our students to continue to participate in elective ensemble courses.

"Involving aspects of the composition, performance and critical analysis of music, the course exposes students to forms, styles and functions of music from a wide range of historical and socio-cultural contexts. Students create, participate in, and reflect upon music from their own background and those of others. They develop practical and communicative skills which provide them with the opportunity to engage in music for further study, as well as for lifetime enjoyment."
