Junior Cycle Music

Junior Cycle Music

The syllabus has been devised to suit the entire range of student aptitude and ability, and to enable students to develop artistic awareness and understanding, self-expression, self-esteem, imagination and musical sensitivity, and therefore, to the development of the whole person. Students will develop knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to produce and engage with authentic and original music, that is both theirs and the music of others. This is achieved in three areas: - (i) Performing - singing, playing solo or in groups (ii) Composing – musical literacy (iii) Listening - recognition of sounds, textures and styles, along with the ability to listen critically and understand basic structures in music. There is an emphasis on student centered teaching and active participation. There are two classroom based assessments (CBAs); Composition Portfolio (year 2) and Programme Note (Year 3), a practical exam (year 3 -30%) and a final written assessment (end of year 3 – 70%).
