The IB Music digital guide is currently being updated.

REGISTER INTEREST

The OSC IB Music study guide is a comprehensive digital resource, recommended for students in either year 1 or year 2 of their IB Music as it forms both an effective companion to teaching materials and a useful review when preparing for assessments.

It has been produced by Mary Jo West, who has taught IB Music at George Mason High School in the USA since 1997, building on over a decade of music teaching in Japan and the USA before that. As well as being a Grammy Music Educator Top Ten Finalist, she is a recipient of the Washington Post’s Outstanding Teacher of the Year!

The study guide is purchased on an annual subscription basis, and is accessed through your web browser. It covers musical perception, composition, and solo and group performance; a review of all assessments; comprehensive outlines and key points for all classical eras, rock, jazz, and world music; and guided instruction on avoiding common pitfalls and using correct terminology. It follows the current IB Music syllabus which is valid for students taking exams up to November 2021.
