Section B Pratice Answers Edexcel GCE Music

A Practice B Section Answer I created when revising lat year - might not be perfect but I did get a high A* in the Exam! This is for Section B of Edexcel GCSE Music. Note : Chopin and (i think ) Buckley came up in 2011, so they probably won't come up in 2012 - but do check and know them anyway. Also note ( I learnt this from the chief examiner at a course) that one b option will be from AOS 1 and 2 and the other will be from AOS 3 and 4 - this means that you can be really prepared for 6 pieces in advance adn not 12.
