  • What is Music Theory and why take the exams?

    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. There is really no reason to be...

I still find starting a piece difficult, but these are some tips that I find useful: - When I start writing a piece I...
  • Grade 5 Theory... Why and How?!

    Kate M Munn Music Theory Exams Tutor (West London) Picture Why do we do Grade 5 Theory exams? There is always an argument about why learners prepare for music exams at all, and whilst it is not the point in learning, it can help learners to focus on the skills they are developing in particular ways. ABRSM Instrumental Exams demand that learners are...
