    Avelia Moisey Music Theory Exams Tutor (Luton) Picture Some students shy away from taking Music Theory exams, even to the extent of switching exam boards to avoid the necessity.  Whilst both ABRSM and Trinity have their merits, it seems a shame that a fear of music theory would be the sole reason to change boards.
