    Does anyone know how to revise for A2 music (edexcel) as i am completely stuck!! :eek:

    There are two sections: The writing part and the listenning part.
    For the writing i would make summary sheets for each of the pieces of music you have studied... Making notes on the key elements of Tonality, harmony, melody, rhythm and orchestration/instrumentation.
    Write a list of features for each of the pieces and keep writing them until u remember it.
    For the listenning i would download or borrow from the library lots of random classical music from the different genres and listen to them, again making notes on the five elements... tonality.... etc. Particularly listenning to the different instruments and their roles in the music...
    Also should go without saying.... Look at ALL the past papers and mark schemes and find out exactly what they want u to say!!!
