TTCT 2019

Teastas i dTeagasc Ceolta Tíre

 

The TTCT course for 2019 (TTCT Director Martin Power) will take place from

Sunday October 27 – Saturday November 2 at An Chultúrlann and

applications are presently being accepted at Head-Office for applicants

specialising in fiddle, flute, whistle, concertina, button accordion, harp,

uilleann pipes and banjo. The closing date for application is August 16 and all

eligible applicants will be requested to attend for audition and interview on

August 31. Alternate provision for audition and interview is made in

exceptional cases and overseas applicants are facilitated appropriately.

The following applicant requirements have been specified by the TTCT:

Traditional musicians with attested skills as a teacher, who display a

competent standard of technique and style with a minimum of 100 hours of

teaching experience (from beginners to advanced levels) are accepted for

entry. The teaching experience can include hours of mentored and supported

teaching at Branch level and all other relevant formal and informal teaching

contexts. Applicants must be 20 years of age or over at the time of taking the

course. Queries in relation to eligibility are forwarded to the Director of the

TTCT for consideration.

Each candidate who wishes to be selected for the course must perform a

20/25 minute programme of Traditional Irish Music. A competent standard of

technique with an individual, musical and stylistic interpretation is expected.

The choice of programme must be well balanced and must display a diversity

of musical skills and technical abilities. Presentation will also be taken into

consideration. In addition, there must be an obvious appreciation of the style

and musicality, plus considerable ability to project and communicate to the

listener. An assessment of the applicant’s suitability as a teacher is made by

means of a personal interview with members of the tutorial staff. Matters

related to their background, teaching experience, teaching methods,

experience as a performer, personal suitability, etc. are explored.

Amongst the subject areas included in this intensive course are: Irish

traditional music and traditional music education and pedagogy, instrument

methodology, musical literacy and analysis, accompaniment, general

preparation, the SCT as a teaching / learning framework and slow airs as part

of the traditional repository.

The course includes practical teaching practice sessions, which are

monitored. The ratio of assessors / tutors to candidate allows for very

significant levels of support. The course has been specifically designed to

equip teachers of Irish traditional music to teach more effectively in a wide

variety of formal and informal community settings.

TTCT Candidates are also advised on best practice in relation to CCÉ Child

Protection Guidelines by Tomás Ó’ Maoldomhnaigh, Ardrúnaí CCÉ, and

candidates are facilitated appropriately re CCÉ vetting.

The TTCT 2019 includes a recently introduced module designed to equip

candidates with the necessary skills to work in conjunction with local CCÉ

Branch Committees in the planning, preparing and organisation involved in

the various educational activities and initiatives and performances undertaken

at local level. This will include e.g. developing appropriate ‘branch

core repertoire’ across the different instruments and age groups, performance

repertoire for different occasions etc.

Applicants are required to have teaching experience at the time of applying

and CCÉ units are asked to facilitate prospective applicants in terms of

acquiring such experience, as is feasible; e.g. in a monitored environment or

assistant role as is appropriate. Branches are also asked to consider various

means of supporting applicants from their branches, understanding that TTCT

graduates will add to the resources of the branch having benefitted from the

further development of knowledge, insights and skills offers by the TTCT.

The course is highly subscribed and applications are received from

candidates both nationally and internationally. Places are allocated on the

basis of date of application and the audition / interview process and to this

effect we are encouraging interested parties to start their application process

as soon as possible.

CCÉ Provincial Councils, County Boards and Branches and CCÉ Regional

centres are asked to inform their units of the details of the TTCT 2019 course

as outlined above, and distribute the TTCT 2019 flyer, application form, and

this course content document as appropriate.

The Course Fee for 2019 remains at €650 and includes all tuition,

accommodation and meal provision for the week.

All further enquiries should be directed to eolas@comhaltas.ie/ (01) 2800295
