Anti-requisite(s): 028249 Creative Arts 2: Music, Movement and Dance



This subject develops student knowledge of the K-6 NSW Board of Studies syllabus relating to the teaching of music, movement and dance in accordance with the creative arts key learning area. It also develops students' skill and confidence in actively engaging primary students in learning experiences that are developmentally appropriate and meet the diverse needs of those students. This subject focuses on the development of basic skills and understandings in music literacy, classroom-based performance skills, and teaching strategies in the areas of vocalising, movement, playing musical instruments, listening to music, and composing music for the primary school classroom. In examining movement, elements of dance are also explored. Students are involved in the implementation of the curriculum through a range of strategies: whole-class campus-based teaching, peer teaching of musical concepts, presentations of ideas for engaging K-6 students in learning activities relating to music, movement and dance, and through opportunities to apply this learning in school-based settings in the field.
