    Hey James. Yeah i'm feeling great but the theory stuff is much harder than performing. I think I'm on track for an a.

    What did you do for your performing and what songs?

    dillon.

    I'll be doing higher as well along with the same instruments unfortunatley we can not use past papers for revision as it doesn't allow you to get the audio file

    Oh that sucks. I'm sure your teacher can provide other revision stuff anyway. What school do you go to? and what other exams do you do?

    I'm really confident for Music. My performing went very well (played the viola and xylophone), and I find theory easier than performing in general!

    The only thing I really struggle with is the dreaded chord sequence question in Q4 I think. The only chord I know well is C and that doesn't help me at all

    Hiya!

    You should check out Paisley Grammar's school flipsnack, it has a collection of past paper questions in it that I find really really useful, and with the Audio Files too😅 (Go by letters not numbers)

    I think my performance went alright; I played sax and piano and am hoping for an alright paper on Friday! Typical it's Friday the 13th eh :eek:

    Urgh chord sequence. That's the last thing we leaned in class. Just look for the minor chord and it's always VI. And if you play instruments such as guitar or ukulele or piano then you might actually know them off by heart.

    Hope you guys all did extremely well! I thought the paper was fair. My music teacher told me the answers (or what she got but I trust her opinion) so if you have any questions you weren't sure on please ask me.
