English - On a High Note

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs D. Northern

Critical Thinking

This course is for students who love music and the power it has to tell stories. You will learn the way song writers use written techniques combined with music to enhance the stories they wish to tell and messages they wish to send. Classes will involve applying your initial learning to understanding how music impacts lives from a cultural and societal perspective. For instance, looking at songs that tell a political story and why these can be a powerful tool for change. You will also apply your learning to the development of your own song lyrics. You may also enter National Song Lyric competitions and/or record your lyrics as an extension of your learning.
