Music Studio II


Grades: 11 and 12

Subject Area/Course Credit: Creative Arts, 1 credit

Prerequisite: C- or above in Music Studio I or teacher recommendation (discuss with Music Studio teacher Mr. Haycraft)

Music Studio II builds on foundational concepts learned in Music Studio I, with a focus on producing a concept album for the year, while also beginning to investigate aspects of different World Music traditions. Students will continue to further their music theory knowledge, as well as explore more complex research methods through looking into composers and influential musicians of the past and present who have shaped music as we know it today. Students may also choose to further their knowledge and practice on one or more instruments or music technology tools. They will share work in class, as well as provide feedback based on their musical knowledge. They will also learn about peer mentoring and teaching. Students who successfully complete this course will be prepared for Music Studio III and may be considered for AP Music Theory.
