Getting Started with GCSE Edexcel Music

Perfect for pupils with no classical/theory training

All the theory needed for the Unit 3 exam, incorporating all the set works. Bridge the gap from KS3 Music and prepare students for GCSE studies. Each concept is fully explained, keywords defined, listening examples given, with engaging activities to reinforce learning.

This is genius! I am overwhelmed by the enormous scope for usage of this resource. Overwhelmed. I also like the fact that most sheets are in 'worksheet' style and can be used individually and out of context. A William-Jones, Head of Expressive Arts & Independent Reviewer

Particularly suitable for students who have had no formal music instruction, or whose theory skills lag behind their playing abilities.

  • Covers every area of study and set work
  • AfL opportunities, including evaluation grids at the end of each section
  • Also supports Controlled Assessment includes performing and composing activities
Excellent resource! Outstanding! Supports basic knowledge and understanding at KS4. V James, Music Teacher & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5295)
"A very good introduction to GCSE Music... Would provide a good starting point for teaching in Year 10. Good composing ideas... This is often a weak area for students. I liked the way it gradually introduces concepts and gets more detailed and difficult. Provides good theory knowledge for students and helpful composing tips." N Squires, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"I thought the resource was useful, helpful and innovative! I loved the different grade boundaries of the exercises as pupils were aware of what they were working to. The layout is realistic and matches how I would expect to teach the course. It gives great exercises and activities throughout, and is detailed but easily understandable. Easy to use, clear, concise, excellent value for money. Thank you for a great resource!" L Buzzing, ZigZag Customer and Independent Reviewer
'Very thorough in terms of musical skills, knowledge and understanding... I liked the way that the skills were progressive throughout the book... The information about the set works is spot on and the composing briefs are fantastic.' - J Knight-Bennett, Head of Music and Independent Reviewer
