Theory examinations and Easter holidays

A number of our students will be taking their music theory examination today.  The theory classes that we run at St Angela’s are in conjunction with the ABRSM (Associated Board) and cover topics such as rhythm, pitch, scale writing, comprehension and composition. This examination had to be rescheduled due to the recent snow. We wish the participating students the very best of luck!

Please note that St Angela’s closes tomorrow, Friday 23rd March, for the Easter holidays and will reopen on Monday 9th April. All students, particularly those sitting exams in the post-Easter examination session, must make good use of the coming two weeks for practice.

Finally, a quick reminder about our upcoming musical evenings:

Tuesday 17th April, 7pm – Primary & External Musical Evening, Scoil Angela
Wednesday 25th April, 7:30pm – Secondary School Musical Evening, Ursuline Gym Hall

We encourage all to attend!

Associated Board theory examinations

Welcome back to all students and staff after the midterm break!

We are straight into the pre-Easter exam session, beginning with the Associated Board theory examinations this Wednesday 1st March. Our theory students, studying at various levels under Mr Paddy Butler, will sit these exams from 5pm to 8pm. Areas assessed will include rhythm, pitch, scale writing, comprehension and composition.

RIAM exams will take place throughout next week and LSMD exams will be at the end of this month. We wish the very best of luck to all our exam students.

Welcome back to a new term

St Angela’s Academy of Music opens today after the Christmas break. We hope all students are rested and rejuvenated for an eventful term ahead.

From now until Easter, and further to the summer break, the school will be extremely busy – there will be pre-Easter and post-Easter exam sessions with the RIAM and LSMD, as well as examinations with the Associated Board and Comhaltas. Much-anticipated events in the school calendar will include the Secondary School Musical Evening and the Primary School & External Musical Evening. Many of our students will also participate in Junior and Leaving Cert practicals as part of their state exams.

There will be plenty happening so do check back in for further updates!

Exam time is upon us once more!

May has begun and we are now into one of the busiest periods of the school calendar. As we come to the end of the final term of the year, many of our students will participate in post-Easter exams with the Leinster School of Music, the Associated Board, the Royal Irish Academy of Music and Comhaltas.

The LSMD exam day is this Thursday 5th May, while the ABRSM examinations will take place over two days on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th May. The RIAM exam session will run for two weeks from Monday 9th May to Friday 20th May. In addition to this, the traditional music students will take their exams with Comhaltas on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th May.

St Angela’s Academy wishes all students the very best of luck!
