MUSIC EDEXCEL GCSE (9-1) UNDERSTANDING MUSIC
sparkhallosparkhallo

MUSIC EDEXCEL GCSE (9-1) UNDERSTANDING MUSIC

(0)
This resource is intended to be used alongside the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Music Student Book. Students should read pages 2-19 and then define the key words (the words in bold) by filling in the gaps in the sentences. The resource consists of one worksheet (20 questions) and an answer sheet. The expectation is that students will get all of the questions right because the aim is for teachers to teach to mastery. If they do not score highly then the concept should be revisited immediately to address any misconceptions. This method helps a student to ‘build a firm long-term memory of the concept being taught’ (Christodoulou, 2016).

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.
