What is involved in LC Music?
4 Set Works, Listening skills & Irish Music
16 bar Melody & 16 bar Harmony (Lesser req. for OL)
: Performance (solo or group), Music Technology & aural test/sight readingSlide4
Structure of Exam/Marking
Each element worth 25%
Double one of the elements
: YOU CHOOSE
(Higher Elective = 50% overall exam)
Example: I play an instrument(s) to a reasonably high standard so
I choose to do a practical worth 50%
(I will play 6-8 or 4 pieces & Music Technology)Slide5
Part of the Practical Element
Generally involves use of music notational/writing software, e.g.
Sibelius, Cubase, etc.
Can be done as
half of Practical
or as full Practical if you play from the electronic/keyboard repertoire
(Currently an extremely straight-forward option!)Slide6
What If I Haven’t Studied Music For JC?
impossible to do LC Music
you need decent practical standard which will allow you to catch up on Compositional (theory/writing) skills
You would need to make some effort to catch up…before start of Poetry (5
THE REQUIRED PRACTICAL STANDARD 1 INST = Approx GRADE 5 (Better!!) (2 Instruments = not as high)Slide7
What Should I Do Now?
Talk it through at home!
Seek advice from music teachers
Ask those who have done music/are doing LC music
Go online (
– read the syllabus)
If you are doing TY music
use remaining opportunities to brush up/improve your standardSlide8
