Comments from 3rd Level Institutions about Ceol Ireland

“Ceol’s Music in the Classroom programme supports the aims and objectives of the revised music currciulum. It works in partnership with classroom teachers, offering them innovative and relevant assistance. It also delivers enhanced music learning opportunities to the students. This classroom music programme, recognising the developmental needs of the child introdcues attractive, balanced, sequential lessons which provide opportunities for the reinforcement of the essential music education concepts outlined in the Primary School Curriculum.” Marita Kerin, N.T, B.Mus, M.Mus Ed., Trinity College Dublin, Education School

"I strongly feel that Ceol is precisely the intervention currently needed in Primary Schools – both to support the teachers and to lay the foundation for music literacy. The fact that so much work has been done already by Ceol in developing and piloting the programme makes it ideal. The Ceol project is very much in line with best practice internationally and deals with all the strands of the curriculum. Music literacy is severely under-developed in schools at present. There is no doubt that early intervention is most effective and international literature shows evidence of the correlation between music literacy and learning competencies in all curriculum subjects." Dr. Evelyn Grant, CIT Cork School of Music, Union Quay, Cork
