Department of Education and Skills Music syllabus

This new syllabus is divided into three component parts which represent the three main musical activities.

(a) Performing Skills: Performing may be either school-based or the result
of private tuition and may be practised individually
or in a group. The categories described on pages 6 to 9 and their appropriate appendices are approved for this purpose.

(b) Composing Skills: Students will be involved in either the composing of
melodic phrases and an introduction to elementary
harmony or free composition as described on
pages 10 and 11.

(c) Listening Skills: Students will be involved in responding in
musically perceptive ways to previously prepared,
as well as unprepared, songs and recorded works using technical and/ornon-technical language as
described on pages 12 to15. In the course of their
study, students will acquire sufficient knowledge
and experience of staff notation and aural training to
be able to perceive and illustrate the relationship
between sound and symbol as specified f led on page 16

It is recommended that three forty-minute class periods per week(not including time spent in
rehearsing school choirs, orchestras and militarybands) under the guidance of a fully qualified
music teacher be made available in each of the three years of the Junior Cycle as a minimum
