i bought it so i can annotate it, because i'm really bad with photocopies
just out of interest, why are you only just doing the first set work?
Our teacher made us work through the very beginnings of music, through plainsong and Renaissance, before reaching Baroque. She said it would make more sense - which I think it does, especially for those in the class who didn't realise Baroque was any different from 'classical' (by which they think anything but pop music
We have now also done the Miles Davis, the Moby and the Jeff Buckley, but I'm worried that we haven't spent enough time on them: the student teacher assumed we would know all the misuc-tech words, like EQ, reverb, filtering
and didn't really explain them properly.
Have you done any practice papers? What do you think about the lack of unprepared listening questions in the new syllabus?
ohh that makes sense then
we did a quick runthrough the earlier bits but most people in our set were pretty clued up on it anyway. we've done the miles davis, moby and jeff buckley too but i found them much harder than the handel, mozart and chopin, i suppose because im not used to playing in that style :/
i quite like the lack of unprepared listening, it seems to make more sense that its all based on stuff weve been working on rather than unprepared. we havent done any practise papers yet but we are in a few weeks
have you started the controlled assessment and done any recordings?
