JUNIOR & LEAVING CERTIFICATE MUSIC

Music is an option for both Junior & Leaving Certificate. First Year students receive a 5 week introduction to music before they choose whether or not to continue with music as an exam subject for their Junior Certificate.

Performing, composing, listening & appraisal are key subject elements of both the Junior and Leaving Certificate courses.
