I have gathered together the revised concept lists from the Course Assessment Specification documents from the SQA for National 3 to Higher level, and placed them in one big document. These are in the traditional grid-like format.
Concept lists are in separate documents for Music Performing and Music Technology. I find this helps me when planning materials.
I will add Advanced Higher concepts when SQA publish them.
This is a ppt which can be used as an interactive resource for pupils to do independent study with this as a short guide or for revision or for listening work as a class.
Suitable for S1/2 (Year 7-8) and as a revision tool for S3/4 (Years 9-10)
Hope you like it. For sound files and examples, I can't seem to attach them to this TES but probably you might have examples of these in your IPods anyway.

A listening log that will get young people into 'Baroque/Classical/Romantic Composers' with a way in through using film as the link.
The idea is to choose a composer each week and begin by letting pupils hear music clips with no visual stimulus. Then Show them the clip with no volume, then with the volume. This provides scope to do composing for film.
Eurovision Song Contest Assembly or Class Play updated to 2017<br />
Maybe this year – a few more points for Grande Bretagne?!<br />
It's that time of year again! Get ready for the funniest show on earth! (Does anyone really take it seriously?!) <br />
This assembly gives a quick chronological run through past winners ... and losers! How can, for example, the UK get it so right ... and yet so desperately wrong! A light hearted coverage of all UK winning songs (and runners up) plus such greats as Abba. The song list is memorable - for all the right reasons!<br />
Cast size 30 - easily adaptable up or down.<br />
Duration: 15 - 30 minutes (depending on number of songs chosen)<br />
Sample Text<br />
Music 8 Waterloo – Abba<br />
(Whole cast plus ‘Abba representative sings song)<br />
Narrator: Wow! What a hit that was! It certainly launched Abba into a glittering rock career!<br />
Rock Star (‘Cliff’) (Grumbling) And as if it wasn’t bad enough - our beautiful Olivia Newton John being pipped to the post. Then it happens again the following year – this time to my mates The Shadows!<br />
Music 9 Let Me Be the One – The Shadows<br />
(Whole cast singing brief excerpt from song)<br />
(Judge charging back onto stage)<br />
Narrator: (Testily) You again!<br />
Judge: But they didn’t win! I thought this line up was meant to be just for winners!<br />
Narrator: (Outraged) What? And miss some of the best music? Never!<br />
(Turning to cast) Are we agreed?<br />
Whole Cast: (Blowing kisses at Narrator) Oh yes! Peace and happiness! We love you!<br />
Music 10 Save Your Kisses for Me – Brotherhood of Man<br />
(Whole cast plus Narrator sing this song)<br />
Narrator: (Sighing) Ah! 1976! Another great win for the United Kingdom!
This is a story on video or PowerPoint( if you wish to add your own ideas) about a spider who wanted his own song. He listened to all the other mini beasts singing and desperately wanted his own song . The idea is to "hook" the children into making their own songs. There is a teacher's guide showing what learning objectives might be encountered. <br />
e.g. high/low/fast/slow/voice expression etc.<br />
The story can also be used in Assembly/PHSE as an in road to "finding your voice" it would be a good starter for writing too. Video can be viewed on https://youtu.be/pTCtxFrLVMM<br />
Included in the resource is <br />
a video<br />
teachers notes<br />
An informative Power Point on Prince, the talented musician and singer, who tragically passed away recently.<br />
