This quiz is focused on the songs , ‘Prologue’ and ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ and is designed as a revision resource that can either be used as a starter, plenary or independently by students.

The summary page covers the key features for each musical element, as well as contextual information on bubblegum pop.

This is designed as a revision resource that can be used as a teaching tool or by students independently.
This presentation shows two lessons I have developed to introduce Year 9 to rock music using Green Day's Boulevard of Broken Dreams. It's designed as a small part of a larger topic on popular music but could be extended to give students more time to prepare. It features three differentiated challenges for students to select with different key questions. The final two slides I copy onto A5 cards to support students who want to perform the chords on guitar. This works well with all the many performing resources for Boulevard of Broken Dreams that are already out there!
This revision resource is designed for the AQA GCSE Music course. It summarises key features of Mushnik and Son from Little Shop of Horrors in a student friendly way, using the analysis notes from AQA as a basis. This resources includes one summary page , ideal for supporting students’ revision, as well as two additional versions designed to help students test themselves as part of their learning. One version is scaffolded with prompt questions and incomplete sentences for students to fill in and the other contains only the headings for each topic. This could be used in lessons, as a home learning task or just for students’ independent revision.
I give this to Year 7 as an A5 handout when they start writing down their compositions. I find it useful for the pupils who need help remembering where the notes are, but also to help the students who want to add dynamics and tempo markings.
This organises the information from the AQA student guide in a way my students have found useful when trying to understand how The Beatles used technology on the album. It splits up the text from AQA using subtitles and has empty boxes for students to fill in, identifying the track each technique was used in and what it sounds like. This could be set as a homework task or used in a cover lesson.
This worksheet includes four sets of listening questions based around extracts from music by Bartók and Kodály to help with delivery of the Western Classical Music since 1910 strand of AQA GCSE Music. Questions include multiple choice and open questions and are worth between 1 and 3 marks to reflect the style of questions that students might encounter in the listening paper. Answer sheets are included. These are suitable for use as part of a lesson or set as homework tasks. Titles of the pieces and timings are included although the listening tracks themselves will need to be found via Youtube / Spotify or another platform.
These resources include a performing resource for students to learn 'All of Me' by John Legend with three differentiated challenges and self-evaluations. The resource sheet uses pictures, chord symbols, notation and youtube links. This has worked with Year 9 to encourage them to attempt trickier chords on the keyboard and apply musical terminology to popular music.
This is a set of worksheets i use when teaching sonatas and sonata form to Year 10. It includes space for class notes and written tasks.
I use this as a listening assessment for Year 9. It uses two Bond clips. The first asks questions about a scene (youtube link is on the worksheet) and the second is Skyfall by Adele. Suggested NC level boundaries are on the answers page.
This is a really simple listening task that can be used in class, with a follow up task designed for homework.\n\nI've kept it very generic so it can be used with different listening examples.
