Practice Error Identification Tests for Pearson Edexcel AS Music (2016 Specification)

Practice Error Identification Tests for Pearson Edexcel AS Music (2016 Specification)

(1)
As part of the examination for the new Pearson Edexcel AS GCE Music specification students will be expected to complete an error identification test. These tests require candidates to listen to a monophonic extract of music and identify three errors in the music as it is notated in the exam paper. Having identified the errors, they will then be expected to write a correct version of the melody. This book provides a series of practice error identification tests in the style of that given in the sample assessment materials provided by the exam board. In each of the tests included, a short melodic fragment or phrase from an existing piece of music has been taken. The first 20 tests in the book are drawn from melodic material found in set works from Areas of Study 1-5 of the specification. Given the nature of the set works in the New Directions area of study, and the reduced importance of melody as a compositional device, or aleatoric nature of the score, the decision has been taken not to include tests for these set works. The final 8 tests are drawn from a wider range of repertoire in order to give students practice completing tests based on unfamiliar music. This is important, as there is no commitment in the specification that the material used in the actual examination will be drawn from either the set works, or the suggested wider listening list. As such, it will be beneficial for students to practice tests that are both from familiar and unfamiliar repertoire. A full mark scheme and audio files for each question are included. A mark record sheet for students to keep a log of their progress can also be found at the back of the book. The book is provided as a PDF file, and the audio files for each question are provided in MP3 format within a compressed ZIP file. This book is designed so that it can be used as one off printed sheets which can be given to students, or as a full printed booklet. A handy guide has been included to help you, if you want to print the full book, to help you make sure the right pages end up in the right place!

Types of Exam Question Poster for Pearson Edexcel GCSE Music (9-1) (2016 Specification)

(4)
The new Pearson Edexcel GCSE Music specification (2016) uses a number of command words that will be used in examination questions. Students will need to become familiar with these command words, and understand the types of questions associated with them, and what is required to gain full marks. This pack of two posters provides definitions for these command words, alongside an example exam question that features this command word (these are taken from my GCSE Practice Examination Questions books) in a visually attractive and easy to ready format. The command words are divided into two posters, for short answer questions, and for longer answer questions. Both posters are supplied in PDF format, with a preview for each available in the files list. For the best results, the posters should be printed borderless on A3 paper, in colour, and laminated.

Music and the Holocaust – Classroom Poster Display Pack

Music and the Holocaust – Classroom Poster Display Pack

(0)
The Holocaust remains one of the worst atrocities committed in human history. Today, it is often studied as part of the secondary school curriculum as part of history or religious education programmes, but rarely within music. This is perhaps because the role of music is not so widely understood as other aspects within Holocaust research; however, music played, perhaps disturbingly, a significant role during the Holocaust, on both the side of the Nazi state and of the countless victims of the Holocaust. Furthermore, the body of songs composed within the concentration camp and ghetto system provide important primary sources about the treatment and experience of the victims of Nazism. The three posters in this display pack introduce three different themes of music within Holocaust study: – Music in Concentration Camps – Music as Resistance – A Timeline of the Nazification of Music These posters are suitable for display in music, history and religious studies classrooms, and will encourage students to think beyond what they already know about both the Holocaust and about the perceptions that we hold about music. All posters are supplied in PDF format. Watermarked previews of all posters are available in the files list. The full unmarked poster is available as the second page in each PDF file, which will become available after purchase. For the best results, the posters should be printed borderless on A3 paper, in colour, and laminated.

Wider Listening Diary for Eduqas GCSE Music (9-1), 2016 Specification

(0)
Regular wider listening is an important part of preparing for the new Eduqas GCSE Specification, as the exam requires students to listen and identify musical devices that are used in unfamiliar repertoire. The music they will be required to listen to in the exam will be related to by style and/or genre to one of the four areas of study. By engaging regularly in listening to unfamiliar music of these styles/genres, students will develop their appraising skills and their ability to recognise various musical devices in unfamiliar music. To support this, I've launched #WiderListeningWednesday on Twitter and Facebook, with a different wider listening piece posted each Wednesday at 9.30 am. This wider listening diary is the perfect accompaniment to these weekly posts, as it will ensure your students engage regularly in listening outside of lessons and will provide a useful record for revision, without the task become arduous and time consuming. What's included? – The diary comes in the form of a full colour A5 booklet that can be printed for students which provides space for 51 diary entries in one place. For best results this should be printed commercially. Two versions of this booklet are included, one for in-house printing, and a second for commercial printing with all of the necessary crop marks included. Please consult the attached guidance for commercial printing to ensure your printed product appears correctly. – The book contains useful guidance that will help students recognise the important features of each wider listening piece, and also contains a list of the musical devices listed in the specification, for reference. – For ease, a handy printing guide has been included to guide you through in-house printing and some recommended print specifications, if you choose to let a professional print company handle your printing.
