KEYBOARD (KEYBOARD 1, 2, 3, 4 Honors)
In Keyboard I students learn how to read music and play the keyboard. As students progress, they will use method books, learn scales, arpeggios, chords, and be given prescribed solos/duets, but will also be permitted to choose their own pieces to study. This course has a small fee associated with it and may require very minimal afterschool practices/performances.
IB MUSIC (IB MUSIC)
*Not updated! New requirements for students graduating in 2023 and beyond!
The IB Music course is designed for juniors (with prior experience in music) in the International Baccalaureate Program at Southeast High School. It is offered during the regular school day. In addition to being in IB Music, students must also be in a performance-based music course during the regular school day. Coursework includes listening to an array of music from all time periods, and also covers music history, analysis, and theory. 50% of the IB Music grade is determined from a solo or group recording, 20% from the Musical Links Investigation (MI), and 30% from the IB Music Exam in May.
