Sheila James's Problem Solving Experience:
I analyzed the musical structure and compositional devices used in the 12 set works for GCSE music exams set by the Edexcel exam board in the UK and the 2 set works for the International Baccalaureate Music Diploma run by Edexcel. These are on sale by ZigZag Education. Some of these did not have a previous analysis so I had to create these and the actual music score from just listening to the recording of the music.
