Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4533)
"Excellent. It is better than other resources because it links closely to AQA spec." D Cowther, Assistant Head of Music and ZigZag Customer
"I think it is a very good accompaniment to the teaching that would go in a GCSE lesson... It builds up gradually which is good for the students who are not 'traditional' musicians and who get scared by the theory side." — N Squires, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"Excellent in terms of breath and depth of information covered." — P Mahon, Music Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"Compliments the Course Companion very well. The practical sections for composing were handy." — M Lowndes, Curriculum Leader & Independent Reviewer
"Would be ideal to use in the first year of GCSE before beginning controlled assessment compositions, as there are a range of composition warm-up and skill-up activities. Thanks for all your great work on the AQA spec - your resource is much more useful and detailed than the 'endorsed' version." — L Waring, HoD & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4532)
"I like the evaluation boxes at the end of each section and the information included is good and relevant." S Dicken, Lead Teacher of Music and Drama, Independent Reviewer
"The analyses of the works, particularly the Mozart symphony, are very good and accessible for GCSE pupils... The theory section was very good... I think this matches the requirements of the specification well and provides a good overview and some very good listening examples in particular." N Squires, Instrumental Manager, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This resource really does live up to its title of 'Course Companion'. Many thanks for your hard work and careful interpretation of the specification." — A Henderson, Director of Music at Kind Edward VI School, Independent Reviewer
"Enhances learning and really aids the teacher to prepare for this part of the course." — M Lowndes, Curriculum Leader of Music and Independent Reviewer
"A great resource for AQA GCSE centres, much more detailed than any resources available currently. Thanks to the author for the time and care spent working through the specification!" — L Waring, Head of Music and Independent Reviewer
