Women Composers booklet

Women Composers booklet

(0)
A 16-page booklet containing twelve women composers, with youtube links, audio also available here: https://oli264.wixsite.com/sparkhallo/youtube-links Please note, TES will only let you preview pages 1,2 and 9. Introduction: The International Encyclopedia of Women Composers (1987) lists 6196 women composers, and that was published over 30 years ago. Today, an estimated 40% of living composers are women, but still, most of the composers we seem to learn about are men. It is strange how some books about music forget to mention any of these women composers. This one is different. This one will help you to make sure that you know about some of these amazing women, and about the world in which they lived. It will help you to secure their legacy after years of neglect.

MUSIC EDEXCEL GCSE (9-1) ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONS – MELODY AND ACCOMPANIMENT

(0)
I have analysed the two specimen papers published by Edexcel, in conjunction with the Specification. By identifying and understanding the requirements of these specimen papers, I have been able to produce a set of resources which will prepare the students for the examination. By reading my analysis, I believe that you will be able to answer the perennial question, ‘will this be in the exam?’ with more confidence, leaving you freer to achieve your primary aim of instilling a love and appreciation of music in your students. What will you gain from the question paper analysis document? 1. Evidence of actual exam questions produced by Edexcel, broken down into sets 2. A clear sense of the style and type of question your student will receive 3. A confidence in knowing what your students need to know and the sort of questions they will answer to demonstrate their knowledge
