Performance: Students will work on developing their keyboard skills every lesson. Students will receive verbal feedback on their keyboard performance skills. Their teacher will track their progress over the course of each half term.
Composition: Students will complete a variety of composition tasks, where they will apply the skills and music devices they have studied to composing original music. Students will keep a log of their compositions in their books.
Listening: Students will complete a listening activity during most lessons.
The levels students achieve for performing, composing and listening are combined to give them their overall level for KS3 music.
