  • 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? (5683)
"This is an excellent resource. The information is clearly presented and the analytical detail is pitched at the right level... The author has carefully chosen five examples to provide a clear chronological overview of the evolution of chamber music, and information is accessible and logical. The sample answers are incredibly valuable... The focus on comparative analysis encourages students to acquire the appropriate skills to tackle the exam with confidence." M Bills, Music Lecturer and Independent Reviewer
"A useful resource for AQA A Level. The amount of detail is appropriate and the essay question/answer section would be very helpful to both teachers and students... Sample essay questions and answers are all useful, detailed and show a good variety of questions and ways to tackle them... As the resource progresses, the points of comparison naturally increase and therefore become more relevant, interesting and stimulating... I would certainly recommend this to anyone teaching or studying this unit." - S Lloyd-Jones, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
