    unless they wsnt to do music later?

    Do your best, good luck.

    What sort of stuff do they test you on in music GCSE? The trainers at musictheory.net might help you. The interval test is my favourite, 'tis superuseful for figuring out how to understand musical movements.

    theres four Area of studys , from different eras of music.

    The right answer is not always the one they're after. When I did my music GCSE (many years ago) they played The Beatles' "Within You Without You" and wanted to know where the music originated from. I put 'Liverpool' but apparently they were looking for 'India'??:thinking:

    But as the poster above states, just enjoy yourself. If you go on to do A levels etc then no-one ever asks what you got in your GSCE's

    Ah, right. Might be an idea to read the Wikipedia articles on the renaissance, baroque, early 20th century (1900s to 1950s, the delta blues into jazz and early rock n roll) and pop music (ie, 1960s to now) eras then, since those are probably the most interesting in terms of musical past and present, and might score you a few extra points.

    It's an easy GCSE. The compositions were the hardest part but If you are interested in the subject you will fly through it. I got an A, that was 16 years ago so I'd say it has changed a bit since then! Good Luck

    listen up and listen good

    Listening?

    Clean out your ears.

    even if he wants to do music later on, Im sure his GCSE grade at 16 years old wont be of any relevance. Only Maths, English and Science hold any real significance at Gcse.


    Pretty sure the big names of music never held an 'A' at GCSE music.
