Set A - 2018



This E-course in Teaching Leaving Certificate Music is aimed at music teachers who want to develop their current knowledge of teaching the Leaving Certificate Music course for Set A. The course is delivered through a variety of comprehensive handouts, sound files, and online resources to help you with study. There are dedicated modules for each of the set works, along with the composition paper and the Irish music listening question.

In each module, the worksheets and handouts will examine the marking scheme, and all the information studied will be based on past questions from the Leaving Cert papers. Participants are required to submit an assignment for each module to test their knowledge on the topics studied.
