This resource provides a selection of activities to use as a pick and mix to add into your lessons. All of the selected films feature are rich and accessible pieces that will excite students about the part that music plays in our enjoyment, understanding and creation of film. The film soundtracks that are featured in the activities have been selected from the current GCSE Music specifications, and would be ideal activities to support study at GCSE level or provide a taster for students before they embark on a GCSE Music qualification. The activities can also be used to support GCSE Media Studies and Music Appreciation as part of a General Studies qualification.
