‘The writing is detailed and informative, offering a wide variety of suggestions and prompts for helping students with composing. It is structured very clearly, by musical element, enabling the student to look carefully into each area and ensure that nothing is missed… Answers are clear, detailed and helpful. The model answers for melodies etc. are particularly useful… This is a thorough resource which students can either go through from start to finish, or dip into according to which musical element they need more help with. This makes it accessible and flexible!’ – R Shapey, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘The concept of a resource like this is a really good idea as the composition element of a music course is one that students often struggle with and especially when it comes to articulating their thoughts musically… I really like the activities in the resource that ask the student to stop and think about contextual examples of the musical elements that are being discussed.’ – P Hughes, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
