Fear not, my tried and tested student friendly composition guide is here! Based around the 2018 Edexcel Brief No. 3 (Music for Stage and Screen) focusing on representing gangs through nationality, this presentation is designed to help students through one of the options of their mandatory composition. It can be used as a free choice brief in later years or for other exam boards. It can be uploaded to the computers of individual students or used as a whole class presentation. Each slide is accompanied with a detailed explanation and examples in audio, midi and also sheet music.
