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.
All resources have been created with the AQA teaching resources from the AQA website
While I have attempted to add as much information as possible, this is not a definitive guide to the syllabus and should be treated as an activity to aid teaching.
