Music Study & Revision Guides

 

When our author Mary-Jo West set out to produce our Music revision guide, it became obvious fairly quickly that the most effective format was not going to be a printed book. That's why Music is only found on Smartbacc – if you have never seen our interactive online platform in action then check out the demo or request a free trial. Schools can purchase a subject license just for Music, or for students buying an individual license it comes with all our Smartbacc guides.

We also have four excellent BACCpacks from Triple A Learning that can be purchased through our store – see the description of each one below for more detail.
