MUSIC EDEXCEL GCSE (9-1) ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONS - KEYS AND CADENCES

(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.

MUSIC EDEXCEL GCSE (9-1) Beethoven ‘Pathetique’ Getting Started

(0)
This is a ‘getting started’ activity for the Beethoven set work. The students need to watch a particular video on YouTube and answer some questions based on what they see and hear. The resources consists of five pages: three question pages and two answer sheets. Notes on resource: I created this resource as a ‘getting started’ activity for study of the Beethoven set work. It is a way of ensuring the students listen to the recording and, by watching the video, they can begin to understand the piece. This resource is linked to Edexcel specimen paper questions where a question was asked about the roles of the left and right hands, as well as about other elements of music including texture.
