AQA GCSE Music Activity - AoS2: Popular Music (Unfamiliar Music)

AQA GCSE Music Activity - AoS2: Popular Music (Unfamiliar Music)

I have created this resource as an activity for pupils to help increase their knowledge for the AoS2 Popular Music Component 1 assessment. This is the Unfamiliar Music section of the test You may wish to work through this as a class or use as a homework tool for pupils. The booklet is 16 pages long so is not a one lesson activity. The booklet contains research activities along with a variety of listening activities. I have split the booklet into 4 section which match the AQA specifications for this AoS2. They are: Music of Broadway 1950s to 1990s. Rock music of 1960s and 1970s. Film and computer gaming music 1990s to present. Pop music 1990s to present. Each listening activity will require a link to YouTube. I have given the key phrases pupils should search along with a thumbnail of the video to ensure they pick the correct video. I have included this as a word documents so that you can feel free to edit.
