ABRSM Theory 10-week Grade 1 to 5 Accelerated Course - Closing date for ABRSM registration 23 June, 2017
Developing literacy with the tonal language forms a key part of a rounded education for performers, composers and listeners of all kinds. An understanding of how written symbols relate to the elements of music, and having the skills to interpret and translate them into sounds, empowers us to communicate and experience music in a meaningful way. Without knowledge of notation it is impossible for classical musicians to access their repertoire with ease or to rehearse together; and this repertoire could not be heard at all had composers not been able to write it down. So, music theory is a very practical subject that is completely entwined with performance and composition.
ABRSM Theory 10-week Grade 1 to 5 Accelerated Course
Music theory group lessons are conducted once weekly over a 10-week period from July 29 to September 30, from 9am to 11:45am (dates may be adjusted in the unlikely event that the examination date falls before 7 October).

ABRSM’s Music Theory exams
ABRSM’s Music Theory exams aim to give students a thorough understanding of the building blocks of music, starting with the basics of rhythm and notes, and going on to cover harmony and counterpoint, composition, and a broad knowledge of western music, including composers and their works, structure, style and period.
Grade 5 as a prerequisite
A longstanding ABRSM benchmark is that a pass at Grade 5 or above in Music Theory must be obtained before candidates can enter for Grades 6, 7 or 8 Practical exams.
