Hello Term 3

Welcome back and I hope you all had a restful holiday.

We have a busy term ahead with Senior Phase Prelim Exams and SQA Music and Drama ‘real’ Performing Exams and also the N5 and Higher Music Tech folio deadlines to meet.

As soon as I have a copy of the prelim timetable I will share it with you all. We will also arrange individual times for the performing prelims. For these you must be able to perform your complete programme with appropriate backing tracks/accompaniment. If your music teacher is playing for you it is your responsibility to ensure they have the accompaniment.

Instrumental lessons begin again this week and copies of the timetables are here on the INSTRUMENTAL TUITION PAGE and also on your Google Classrooms as well as on the dept notice board. Please ensure you check your time and arrive at your lesson on time with instrument and books etc. If for any reason you cannot attend please let your instructor know in advance. It is only polite to do this and they may be able to swap your time with someone else.

Music Groups will start week beginning 17 Jan. I will post more information when I have confirmation of which ones are going ahead this term.

We welcome Ms Kovnators back on the 17 Jan for 2 weeks to complete her placement with us.

S1 music are studying The Music of Scotland this term, S2 are studying Showtime, S3 Music are finishing The Voice and then moving to The Music of Scotland and S3 Music Tecgnology are creating a Radio Show.

If you have any questions please pop along to the staff base to see us.

Have a good term! 🙂
