I’m currently in year 10 and for our set works we are pretty much a whole half term behind and classes and work have felt so pointless (we spend two whole lessons just watching a documentary). I am wanting to get a 9 in gcse music so does anyone have any advice on self studying to get that?
(I am on edexcel if that helps)

Don't rely on your class and get ahead. My music lessons are equally as crappy so I can relate. Check your specifications, make flashcards relating to the various features of the music (timbre, dynamics, metre e.t.c) in platforms such as Anki (recommended) or Quizlet (alternative). Anki specifically allows you to study periodically meaning you'll retain information in your head with relatively little effort and you'll become an expert on your set works within a matter of weeks of daily, consistent flashcard reviews. That's my approach going forward with the set works at least... worked with my sciences as I achieved a grade 8 in one of our latest assessments (currently in Y10) so I don't see why this wouldn't apply to music. Give it a go and it may work for you.

Yes, here’s the defying gravity one: https://www.rhinegold.co.uk/wp-conte...and-screen.pdf

For the others, type into google “rhinegold music edexcel (name of set work)” and it will come up, and will look similar to the one I’ve sent.
