ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC MUSIC

ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC MUSIC

These recommended free e-resources are specifically aligned with the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC)  curriculum framework as suggested in the CSEC Music Syllabus. Resources are provided under each of the following three general topics of study as recommended by CXC:

 

Listening and Appraising (LIAP)

Performing (PERF)

Composing (COMP)

 

The syllabus generally aims to:

  • Encourage the desire to continue learning in formal and informal music settings during and after school
  • Provide knowledge and skills to critically analyze and evaluate music
  • Provide opportunities for the development of personal values about music
  • Provide opportunities through which students can develop creativity, manage their own learning, work together with others and engage in activities that reflect the real-world practice of performers, composers and audiences
  • Provide opportunities for informed decision-making through the development of skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, research and communication.

 

NOTE: Music education contributes to the enhancement of aesthetic and intellectual development as well as social skills. As a part of general education, music is pleasurable to and suitable for students with different aptitudes and abilities, including those students who are physically and emotionally challenged. The student will generally attain the capacity to manage their own learning, work together with others and engage in activities that reflect the real-world practice of performers, composers and audiences. Moreover through Music study, the development of qualities in the student that other disciplines aim to develop, namely: creative and inventive thinking, self-control, self-expression, disciplined thinking, problem-solving abilities, teamwork and sensitivity to the needs and contributions of others is accomplished.
