MUSIC

The Arts Faculty at St Rita’s College conspires to provide a meaningful, vibrant and rigorous Arts Education

that celebrates what it is to be human.

St Rita’s Arts Faculty Mission Statement

Why study Music?

Music is found in all parts of life. You can use it as a powerful

form of communication that helps you express your ideas

and feelings when words can’t.

Music is mostly a practical subject where you will use your

creativity and thinking skills to perform, compose and

respond to music. You will create and share your own music

and also explore music from other musicians.

When you study Music, you develop confidence, persistence

and the ability to work on your own and with others.

Assessment

You will have assessment tasks that improve your ability to perform, compose and write about music. Tasks

marked individually on your own work.
