12MUC

NCEA Level 2 Contemporary Music

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Petch

The 12MUC course consists of a combination of NCEA Level 2 internally and externally assessed standards that focus on the musical disciplines of: Solo Performance, Group Performance, Composition, Aural and the study of two Music Works. Students selecting this course must be an instrumentalist or vocalist with a preference for working in the Contemporary Music genre and enjoy collaborative performing and composing/songwriting in small groups (bands within the class). Students selecting this course are required to take weekly lessons on their instrument in addition to the classroom lessons. These lessons may be accessed through the school's Itinerant Music Teachers' scheme (free of charge) or with a private tutor outside of school (paid lessons). Please ask any of the Music Department staff for advice and help if you are unsure about your suitability for this course.

The content of the 12MUC course is as follows:

Perform two substantial pieces of music as a featured soloist

Two solo performances are examined during the year, one during term two and one during term four. There must be a minimum of two pieces and ten minutes total time across the year's work.

Demonstrate ensemble skills by performing a substantial piece of music as a member of a group

One ensemble performance will be assessed by the end of term three. A group should comprise three-seven members. A soloist with accompaniment does-not fulfil the criteria for this Achievement Standard. Each performer must play a separate or uniquely identifiable part.

Compose two substantial pieces of music

Two compositions will be assessed. Assessment is by group composition. Each composition must involve 2–5 students, working in a group which will be arranged by the member of staff in charge. Each student’s creative contribution to the group composition will be individually assessed. Assessment is through a recording of each completed composition, a log book of the composition process and a representation of the music through a lead sheet.

The following are assessed through external examination during Term Four:

Demonstrate aural understanding through written representation

Demonstrate understanding of two substantial contrasting music works
