Books and resources - an update
Recently I've been busy writing new articles and books for Music Teacher magazine and Rhinegold Education.
For Music Teacher, my online resources along with those by many excellent authors can be found here. I've been doing two 'series': World Tour is a journey through the musical cultures of the Caribbean, Latin America, China, the Middle East, West Africa and Europe. The latest resource in that series, on the music of the Middle East, is available now.
The other series, Developing Wider Listening provides resources for students aimed at improving general musical knowledge through listening to a wide range of music from different times. The Baroque and Classical periods are available now and there are resources covering the Romantic period and 20th century coming very soon.
I've also recently written resources on GCSE or A Level set works: one on Paul Simon's Graceland has just been published and there are more to follow later in the year, on Little Shop of Horrors and the music of Barbra Streisand. If you look a little further back on the list of resources you'll find ones on well-being in music, rock classics and tips on how to revise for music exams.
For Rhinegold Education, I've just finished two supplements which will be published in time for the start of the Autumn Term 2021. One is for OCR A Level and looks at the new set works prescribed for 2023 by Mozart and Billie Holiday. The other, for Eduqas/WJEC GCSE is a supplement to my existing listening book, covering new set works by Bach, Grieg, the Manic Street Preachers and Toto.
Just a reminder, also, that ABRSM's Discovering Music Theory, which I spent nearly two years writing, is out now to support all those preparing for theory exams or wishing to improve their theory!
