During term 4 prep students will be applying their musical knowledge gained over the year to instruments and symbols. Prep students will explore the relationship between sound and symbols. That is, how sound can be represented as symbols that can then be documented for others to perform. Here prep students will need to draw on their knowledge of dynamics (louds and softs), tempo (fast and slow), pitch (high and low) as well as timbre (the sound quality an instrument makes) and unleash their creativity to compose short whole class compositions. Towards the end of the term preps will also engage in some merriment through song as the excitement of Christmas draws near.
