Useful Links:
www.musictheory.net (A great site for learning the basics of music theory, with Flash tutorials and online tests)
 
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ (Download Audacity - a really simple tool for recording sound but with some quite advanced features if you want them - totally free!)
 
http://www.spotify.com (Free streaming of almost any piece of music you can think of, including some quite obscure stuff.  Useful for GCSE and A level musicians if you want to do some wider listening.  Great if you need a backing track for a song as it is also full of Karaoke accompaniments.  CD quality and totally legal!)
 
www.essentialsofmusic.com/ (A great site if you want to revise musical periods for GCSE music as there is not an excessive amount of info and there are musical clips to listen to.)
 
www.redhotjazz.com/ (Amazing site, full of information about jazz surprisingly enough.  Also includes Real Audio clips of hundreds of pieces.  Essential for AS music.)
 
www.soundjunction.org/  (A comprehensive site produce by the ABRSM - the main examining body for music graded exams.  You can take music apart and find how it works, create music yourself, find out how other people make music and how they perform it, learn about musical instruments and look at the backgrounds of different musical styles.)
