Music teacher Susan McCormick, from the Institute of Education on Leeson St, joined Evelyn on the Drivetime Study Hub to discuss the Leaving Cert music course.

You can hear it all from 17 minutes into the show above. In this Study Hub Susan mentions the new layout of the paper and has some advice on how to approach the paper overall.

She was kind enough to provide this video tutorial to help students understand the changes, with a focus on the melody question in particular.


The music at the start of the lesson was from Berlioz and you can his work here with the RTÉ National Symphony orchestra.
