"Once again, Rhinegold have produced an excellent "must-have" resource." Anthony Anderson, Music AST

This study guide will help students to:

  • gain an understanding of all aspects of the Edexcel AS course
  • learn from leading examiners and teachers on the best way to approach the exams
  • discover how to achieve higher grades
This best-selling study guide has been fully revised in line with the new AS Specification. Students are shown how to approach music to the depth required for AS, with practical help with study techniques, note taking, planning coursework and revision.

There are dedicated chapters which analyse each of the set works to the depth required by the examiner; ensuring students have the support to go into the exam with confidence.

The authors offer additional guidance relating to Sections B and C of the Developing Musical Understanding paper, help on the new requirements for composing, and practical advice on performing.

The expanded glossary relates technical terms to specific examples in the New Anthology of Music and numerous music examples aid the explanation of the concepts encountered in the music.

David Bowman was for 20 years director of music at Ampleforth College and a chief examiner for the University of London Schools Examination Board (now Edexcel) from 1982 to 1998. His publications include Sound Matters (co-authored with Bruce Cole, Schott, 1989), Aural Matters (co-authored with Paul Terry, Schott, 1993), Aural Matters in Practice (co-authored with Paul Terry, Schott, 1994), Analysis Matters (Rhinegold, Volume 1 1997, Volume 2 1998) and numerous articles for Music Teacher. He is a contributor to the Collins Classical Music Encyclopedia (2000) and author of the Rhinegold Dictionary of Music in Sound (2002).
