Junior/Leaving Cert Practical Course

Junior and Leaving Certificate Practical Performance Course

Practical exams can be a daunting prospect so extra tuition can go a long way to enhancing a student's chances of scoring those all important points in the Junior and Leaving Certificate.  Our fully qualified teachers provide indepth knowledge of the Music Practical Exams, as well as support, guidance and encouragement.  In our 1-day courses we conduct an initial assessment (45 minute One-to-One between teacher and student), a solo performance assessment, repertoire advice and specific music exam preparation.  We specialise in singing, guitar, piano, ukulele and flute.  

Kerry Nyhan (Qualified Vocal Coach BAPM) and Louise Luddy (Qualified Secondary School Music Teacher) will advise the students on all the relevant areas of study (such as sight reading, aural tests and music technology), as well as bringing to the students' attention the criteria for success in these exams.  Through confidence building, watching peer performances, and exercises which help take control of nerves (a prominent part of the 1-day program), we will help the students create a performance with a professional edge.  They will come away from the day long course with an exam-ready performance that stands out from the crowd; one that is designed to impress a music examiner.
