Product Description

The GCSE Performance Pieces series provides an exciting contemporary repertoire levelled specifically for GCSE performance examinations, accompanied by expert commentary to help your students prepare and achieve their potential with material they really want to play. This book is for the Guitar.

Each book in the GCSE Performance Pieces series has been compiled by an experienced instrumental teacher/examiner, and overseen by our Series Editor, Andrew Coxon, who is a senior GCSE examiner and an experienced classroom teacher. The songs have been carefully chosen to provide students with the best opportunity to show off their instrument and skills, with a broad range of artists and styles to choose from.

This Guitar book includes:

  • Pieces that are suitable for all exam boards
  • Ten songs from a range of genres and styles with differing difficulties that are appropriate for GCSE level
  • A CD accompaniment of professionally recorded backing tracks, so you can hear how each song should sound. 
A great selection of songs is included in this book, with some old favourites, some contemporary classics, and tunes that will work really well on acoustic or electric Guitars. Featuring Don't Look Back In Anger by Oasis, Back In Black by AC/DC, Pinball Wizard by The Who as well as The Pretender by Foo Fighters, and many more. The songs included in the book correspond roughly to Grades 3 to 6, allowing you to select a piece that you are familiar with, but also that you will be able to play well and comfortably. Each tune features a useful page of essential information, giving you performance tips and recommended listening.

Helpfully, a YouTube playlist has been created containing all the songs in the book, along with additional suggested listening such as interesting cover versions or other songs for cultural context, allowing the student to explore ideas for their own interpretation.
