Which way now? GCSE music challenges and choices
September 2016 hails the introduction of new GCSE qualifications in music. This webinar with Dr Alison Daubney and Kirsty Devaney will help music educators to choose the most appropriate qualification for their pupils by considering the key changes and exploring the new qualifications from each awarding body in depth. It also briefly explores other qualifications currently counted within the Progress 8 and Attainment 8 measures.
The session includes some practical ideas and guidance on aspects of the GCSE which are compulsory across all boards, including free composing, ensemble performance and critical analysis of musical extracts not studied as part of the course.
