Welcome to The Everything of Theory with Jane McNeill!
The Everything of Theory is a course designed to take students in small groups through the ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory syllabus and examination. There is an option to continue to Grade 6, and finally Grade 8.
The topics are explained clearly and covered in a logical order, to build the student’s confidence in readiness for the exam.
Why take ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory?
Passing Grade 5 Music Theory means that a student can take Grade 6 or higher on their instrument. However, that is not the only reason for taking the exam! The course will take a student through the fundamental principles of music and its composition, and lead to a greater understanding of how music works. This in turn will support a student’s performance on any instrument or voice, as well as provide a solid grounding for GCSE and A-level music.
The course is available in several different lengths – either 13 weeks, 20 weeks, 26 weeks or 39 weeks. Each course will cover the whole syllabus in depth, with plenty of examples and question practice.
ABRSM Grade 6 and Grade 8 Music Theory are only available as a 30 week course, to take the exam in June.
