Creative Arts: Music : Grade 8
DCES: Creative Arts (Music)
Welcome to the inspiring world of Creative Arts! In this subject it is important to explore, experiment, experience and express your thoughts, ideas and the subject content you have learnt. You will develop your voice, body and mind so that you can express yourself in many ways through Music, Visual Art, Drama and Dance. Creative Arts will also help you to become a disciplined, focused and creative human being. All these qualities prepare you for any career you may choose to follow one day. The study of Music in Creative Arts aims to develop the ability to perform a variety of vocal and instrumental Music in group and solo contexts. In addition, learners are exposed to the written and aural language of Music through reading and writing Music. Furthermore, the subject aims to develop the ability to create new Music through improvising and composing, using both conventional and non-conventional compositional techniques. The content also enables learners to become informed listeners of Music by actively listening to a variety of music ranging from Western, indigenous and popular music. If learners wish to study Music in the FET band, special effort should be made for them to develop the ability to perform instrumentally or vocally at an elementary level and have a good sense of rhythm and pitch. They should also be able to read staff notation at the end of Grade 9.
