Hi my fellow music stress-heads,
I can never find anywhere to get tips/discuss/moan about A level music (edexcel), maybe because it's not a popular subject to take. So I thought I'd start this - does anyone have any predictions for essays/set works etc.? What's everyone struggling with? Isn't wider listening ridiculous? I'm reckoning Anoushka Shankar and her sitar are gonna gatecrash the party this year
anyway cheers x

Hi,
yeah there are literally no threads on this website about it. I was looking back on papers and I feel like revising the entirety of Popular music and Jazz plus Anoushka Shankar would be a safe bet. Idk. There are no safe bets ****. Maybe Familia Valera Miranda? What hasn't come up... also question 5 what the hell is thatttttt argagrjahjkhr

My vision of the 2019 exam!
Q1 Clara Schumann Piano trio
Q2 Batman returns BOP part 2
Q3 Stravinsky les augures printaniers
Q5 Unfamiliar Vocal music
Q6a, Eine feste burg mov 1 and 8
Q6b, Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique
Q6c, Anoushka Shankhar Burn or Easy

I would adjust my predictions if i knew what was on the AS paper a few weeks ago. What do you guys think?

My predictions for the q6 essay options:
J S Bach
Beatles
Anoushka Shankar
Portman
Debussy


FYI, the Anoushka Shankar pieces have NEVER come up in ANY past exam since the new specification started.... so I feel like it will 10000% come up this week!

Is everyone expected to really revise all 18 songs in detail? or are people looking at the ones that are more likely to come up?

Revising all 18 is what edexcel expect however people are trying to find out what was on the AS paper cos what was on that is very unlikely to come up on the A level paper.

Think I'll just go over everything again. The main essays from last year could still appear in the first three questions- when they get you to analyse the scores.

They will certainly not use the same essays but potentially 1 could be a listening question, i'm not that worried with dictation and the first 3 questions i'm just dreading the big marks for the 2 essays
