Introducing a new radio series for HSC Course 2 teachers and students

New Australian Music for HSC is a series of radio programs hosted by Australian clarinetist and music teacher Jason Noble, that are designed to enhance the study of the HSC Senior Music Core topic, Music of the Last 25 Years (Australian focus).

Introducing the series will be three one hour-long programs that present works for woodwind/brass, piano/percussion and strings.

Works chosen for broadcast must have been composed in the last 25 years by an Australian composer for solo and duo works. Some of the more established composers, such as Ross Edwards and Elena Kats-Chernin will be heard alongside lesser-known ones in an attempt to make students aware that there is an abundance of new works written for their instrument.

Students studying the HSC Music 1 course could also find some interesting pieces to select should they choose the Australian Music elective or even the topic An Instrument and its Repertoire. There will be works presented to cater for a range of student abilities.

The programs will be broadcast from 17 February on Fine Music’s digital channel FINE MUS, and live streamed to ensure access to those living outside of Sydney. They will also be available for replay on Radio-on-demand available following the broadcast times.
