ABOUT THIS COURSE

Feeling that teaching composition at A level is an elusive skill? How much should we direct what our students do? Do you feel that assessment criteria are shrouded in mystery? Which of the composition briefs will suit your students best?

All these questions, and more, will be tackled in this course, which will look in depth at the different briefs set by AQA, together with examiners’ reports and exemplar work. You will be given strategies for getting students of different abilities started and finished successfully. There will be tips for teaching the Bach chorale brief, and advice on guiding your students on which brief to choose.

This new course is aimed at all teachers of AQA A level in terms of examples, but much of the course would be of benefit to A-Level Music composition teachers of other exam boards.
