The Social Setwork Podcast Episode 3: Music For A While by Purcell

The Social Setwork Podcast Episode 3: Music For A While by Purcell

My podcast, The Social Setwork is designed for students who are too busy studying "real subjects" to focus on Music Set Works. In under 30 minutes, I will teach your students about each set work focusing on relevant facts using the sophisticated musical language required by Edexcel, and backed up with audio examples. I include a discussion about possible essay questions, a question and answer game, and some melodic dictation to finish! Your students can relearn the set work infinite times anywhere they have their phone! Download once, and share forever. Easy homework, easy cover, excellent results. Edexcel Set Works, we all love those analysis lessons! Do you students nod their heads as you explain the key terms and features for the millionth time, only to forget them 10 minutes later? Have you spent countless hours rewriting revision sheets and worksheets for them to scrunch up in their bags? Are your powerpoint not reaching them at home? Let's reach them anywhere their phone is - everywhere! Why not try an aural resource for musical learning?
