What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6256)
"Really helps students develop an understanding of composing... It relates clearly to the marking criteria and the Area of Study. I liked the methodical way that each area of composition is discussed and developed with practical exercises for students to complete... Students are given scope to develop their skills through either Baroque, Classical or Romantic music, and they develop a strong understanding of the main features of each era. This also relates back to the listening paper." - D Neville, HoD and Independent Reviewer
