Google Classroom in Action

Posted by on Nov 11, 2016 in Music | Comments Off on Google Classroom in Action

A group of year 9 music students working online, through google classroom.   Teachers have developed tasks through google classroom to enable students to see results as they finish their tasks, rather than having to wait to find out their results. Students are encouraged to explore these tasks at home to further develop the skills and knowledge they already have attained in the classroom. Students can also ask for clarification of tasks or ask about class activities to have a greater understanding of what they are being asked. This enables students to take ownership of their learning and keeps record of their efforts, progress over time and helps teachers see their areas of greatest need. This is one of the many tools available to students at Mangere College and both staff and students are excited to see the learning environment adapt and improve.  ...

Music APO Concert – Auckland Town Hall

Posted by on Sep 12, 2016 in Music | Comments Off on Music APO Concert – Auckland Town Hall

On Thursday 8th September, a group of Year 10 Music students took the opportunity to attend a Connecting with Music concert hosted by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) at Auckland Town Hall. It was presented by the renowned music educator, Richard Gill, who analysed and explored Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony. They were fortunate enough to have front row seats and were taken on a musical journey of exploration by the APO in all their glory. Gill’s narration and teachings captivated our students’ minds and provided much inspiration and ideas for when they come to compose and devise their own music. This was the 2nd of 2 specialised concerts these students attended at this wonderful venue in the heart of the city. Many thanks go to the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra for offering and facilitating this fantastic opportunity for our young people to further their wider Music Listening and experience such a prestigious live performance event. The material discussed and performed relates to the Level 1 external standard which they will study in Year 11...
