‘The resource is thorough and detailed… It is well laid out, with a logical structure which is easy to navigate… The use of questions requiring reference to the score (i.e. not having musical examples in the text) is good in getting the student to look outside of the resource and think more broadly… The summary sections are also good, in encapsulating each section… The clarity of the resource makes it extremely useful for students. It provides a broad picture, both of the development of the symphony and of this work in particular, and then drills down into greater detail. The exam guidance and questions are good preparation for final assessment… This is an excellent resource.’ – R Birtles, Eduqas Teacher and Independent Reviewer

It gives learners a chance to explore the Mendelssohn symphony and also the wider context. Exam-style questions provide invaluable practice and will help to develop exam technique well… A useful glossary is provided at the end of the resource… Resourceful suggested answers provided to activities and practice questions. Good as a starting point and introduction to the world of Mendelssohn and his symphonic writing!’ – C White, Head of Music and Independent Reviewer
