Music is offered for subject study as part of the BEd Primary course. Music courses are school-focused and offer a balanced programme that aims to develop teaching skills, practical performance, and knowledge and understanding of musical styles and compositional techniques. Opportunities are provided from the outset for students to apply newly acquired skills in the classroom environment. The use of computers for music sequencing and composition and for the development of multimedia materials is promoted. Opportunities are provided for participation as vocalists and instrumentalists in College events and departmental recitals in association with the College Music Society.
