Music in Manor House

"Music is the manifestation of the human spirit, similar to language. Its greatest practitioners have conveyed to mankind things not possible to say in any other language. If we do not want these things to remain dead treasures, we must do our utmost to make the greatest possible number of people understand their idiom." - Zoltan Kodaly

Manor House music courses integrate performing, listening and composing activities. Our aim is to develop our students' musical skills and broaden their musical knowledge in order to nurture a lifelong appreciation of music. Through participation and observation, they experience many musical genres including Classical, Traditional Irish, Jazz, Pop and Religious. Co-curricular links are fostered with other subject departments and many opportunities are provided for both solo and group performance, particularly at the school's annual liturgical events. Senior Cycle students also learn music technology. Manor House students may choose music as an exam subject. It is not necessary for students to play a musical instrument, if they have a good singing voice.
