Musicianship Classes

All Junior students attend a weekly Musicianship class, to support learning and teaching in the Practical Lesson.  Through these graded classes, students develop a range of core music skills including aural awareness, sight-singing, theoretical understanding, critical listening and appreciation of music.

The class duration varies according to the grade of study:

Initial and Primary Grades 30 mins
Grades 1–3 45 mins
Grades 4–5 1 hour
Grade 6 1 hour 15 mins
Grades 7–8 1 hour 30 mins

Students are expected to complete weekly homework, which may take the form of written work, or practice (e.g. sight-singing, memory work etc.).
