HOW THE COURSE WORKS

 

This course is designed to help your students prepare for the NCEA Level 3 music exam for AS91421,  Demonstrate understanding of Harmonic and Tonal Conventions in a range of music scores,  so they can get the best possible grade for the standard.

 

It gives an overview of the questions that have typically featured in the exam over the last few years and provides simple video tutorials which outline step by step, how to answer them well.  The course allows students to check whether their exam answers are likely to be marked as correct through a range of self-marking digital quizzes which are in the style of past exam papers. It also gives them the opportunity to check their harmonisation skills by providing downloadable harmonisation tasks which they can complete along with video guidance.

 

PREREQUISITES

Students need to have already completed a programme of learning where they've already learnt the terminology and concepts that NZQA outline as necessary knowledge for the standard before beginning this course. This is because the focus of this course is on teaching the application of knowledge to the style of questions that often arise in the exam, not the teaching of the knowledge itself.

REVIEWS

This online resource is absolutely brilliant. It not only gives systematically clear explanations of the required skills for the Level 3 Harmonic and Tonal Conventions exam, but students are carefully guided in how to best respond to the questions, inorder to perform their absolute best in the exam. Any student wanting to be thoroughly prepared for the AS91421 external exam will benefit considerably from this resource, and it will be a welcome support for teachers in this time when teaching and study opportunities have been greatly impacted.

Kathryn has produced another awesome music resource. I love this course in particular as it guides you through the entire paper and all the knowledge you need to attempt this standard. There are interactive learning moments throughout to test your knowledge and the videos are clear and concise and very easy to follow. It builds on the basic elements, roman numerals, jazz chords, cadences, modulation and more. Could be used in a class setting or completed as an individual. I cannot recommend this enough

 Hi, I'm Kathryn.

I'm a music teacher, composer and pianist.  

Over the years of teaching the NCEA Level 3 Harmonic and Tonal Conventions standard, I've discovered that students sometimes have difficulty writing convincing answers in their  exam. Students can be unsure of how to apply the music theory they’ve learnt during the year to the exam itself and sometimes end up leaving questions blank. 

 

When I put this course together, my goal was to provide simple strategies that students could apply to exam questions and to demonstrate clearly how these could be used to make answering challenging questions a little easier. I also wanted to give students the opportunity to practice these skills and so I’ve placed interactive elearning activities and digital quizzes throughout the course, so students can see how they’re doing.

 

I have been involved in Musical activities since starting piano lessons at 4 years old. I have a BMus(Hons) degree with first class honours in composition from Auckland University, which I completed after undergraduate study majoring in both Performance piano and composition. Over my career in Music Education I have been in charge of Academic Music at Diocesan School for Girls,(Auckland) been HOD Music at Bethlehem College, (Tauranga) and have completed contractual work for both NZQA and the Ministry of Education. I currently work in Rotorua where I'm an itinerant music teacher and also private piano teacher. I have a growing, passionate interest in web development.
