Are your teenagers nervous or jittery about their upcoming Music Practical Junior and Leaving Certificate exams? Then we have the course for them! Two of our teachers Kerry Nyhan (Qualified Vocal Coach BAPM) and Louise Luddy (Qualified Secondary School Music Teacher) are teaching 1-day courses to prepare students for what can be a very daunting exam.
Providing indepth knowledge of the Music Practical Exams, as well as support, guidance and encouragement, teachers will conduct an initial assessment (45 minute One-to-One between teacher and student), a solo performance assessment, repertoire advice and specific music exam preparation. Specialising in singing, guitar, piano, ukulele and flute, our teachers 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), they will help the students create a performance with a professional edge; a performance that stands out from the crowd, and one that is designed to impress a music examiner. Each 1-day course is 120 euro and can be booked here for a deposit of 45 euro, with the remaining 75 euro paid on the day. There are only 12 places in each 1-day course so booking is essential to avail of this extremely beneficial workshop. The group workshops will be on from 3pm to 7pm, and the initial One-to-One assessments will be pre-allocated for the morning and afternoon of the dates above. Book now to avoid disappointment!
