Planning for Performance

Age: 12,13
Project Year: 2010-11

Research & presentation of a choice of different musical genres & styles

The project is based on research & presentation of a choice of different musical genres & styles. There are six categories or groups and there are members of each school in each group. Each group has a different topic to research, collect, listen to, analyse and present. The six areas studied were Irish Traditional Music, Indonesian Gamelan Music, American Marching bands, Popular Irish Soloists, Popular Irish Bands and Orchestral Music. The students discussed their ideas through the forums & came up with collaborative ideas for presentation on the wikis.


Our face-to-face meeting took place in Belfast where we attended a performance of a Gamelan Orchestra which is one of the group topics. The students also took part in a workshop where they enjoyed a hands on experience.


Schools Involved

Media Gallery

For Dissolving Boundaries Day 2014 we invited schools to send us short video recordings that show what DB means to them. We've pieced these together into a movie!

A documentary about linking schools through ICT; case studies of cross-border links between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Dissolving Boundaries programme and in Israel through the TEC program.
