Junior Cycle for Teachers (JCT), in collaboration with the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and Sing Ireland, are delighted to offer an initiative entitled ‘Me and My Music’ for music teachers, visiting musicians and first-year students of Junior Cycle Music. This Arts in Junior Cycle initiative aims to support the integration of the principles and key skills which underpin the Framework for Junior Cycle (2015), the Arts in Education Charter and the Creative Ireland Programme (2017-2022), Pillar 1 Creative Youth.
Sing Ireland is recruiting a small team of choral facilitators who will work with and support students and teachers in developing their music voice and allow their musical self and identity to emerge. Using a hands-on approach, the choral facilitator and classroom teacher will aim to instil in students a creative disposition where they are free to experiment, allowed to take risks, encouraged to explore new and challenging opportunities and reflect on the creative process.
Facilitators will visit participating schools for up to six-hours class contact time. This time will allow teachers, together with their students, to engage with their own creative process and will further support their understanding of Junior Cycle Music.
