Music Theory Lessons

Music theory lessonsWhy study music theory? It may be that you need to pass grade 5 music theory in music theory 1order to progress to grade 6 Associated Board practical, a compulsory requirement. Perhaps you want a qualification such as GCSE or AS/A level music.


For those who take practical exams with Trinity College London, music theory and understanding is an integral part of the exam within the Musical Knowledge and Aural test options. Studying music theory can really make a difference and help you achieve the highest marks possible.


Whatever your reason, understanding music theory will help to make you a better musician and performer as well as helping you to better understand the music that you listen to. Most people who have studied music theory with me tell me that their enjoyment of listening to and playing theory 2music increases as a result of their studies.


Music theory lessonsFor those who want or need qualifications in music theory there are 2 main examination boards that offer these external exams. Trinity College London and The Associated Board (ABRSM). Both boards have similar requirements but there are subtle differences between the requirements for each and how they are structured throughout the grades. Either way I can guide you in the right directionand help you to success


All aspects of GCSE and A level courses can be covered.


Regardless of your reasons for wanting to study music theory we can tailor your lessons towards your individual needs. Please contact me for more details.
