    Introduction

    Sample assessment materials (SAMs) provide learners and centres with specimen questions and mark schemes. These are used as the benchmark to develop the external assessment learners will take.

    Unit 1: The Music Industry

    The SAMs for this external unit have been provided for the following qualifications:

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Music

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Certificate in Music

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Extended Certificate in Music

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Diploma in Music

    Unit 8: Music and Production Analysis

    The SAMs for this external unit have been provided for the following qualification:

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Music

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Certificate in Music

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Extended Certificate in Music

    BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Diploma in Music

    As the Award is nested within the Certificate, Extended Certificate and Diploma, we have adopted the convention of titling external assessments for the smallest award for which they are available across the whole BTEC first suite. This is the same convention used for AS/GCE which is also a nested qualification.

    Showcase Tour 2013

    Tiny Town productions (TTp) runs showcase tours around the UK to launch

    exciting new, unsigned talent into the UK music scene.

    They are looking to put on shows in places they have never been to before, to

    expose their artists to a youthful audience of 1825 year olds. They are looking

    for local promoters.

    These promoters will bid for contracts to run TTp showcase events. They must

    know about their local music industry and be familiar with local venues and

    companies that would help to put on the show.
