Course Overview

This course covers content for ABRSM Grade 5 Theory, incorporating listening skills and music appreciation at GCSE level (for more details see the teacher's Profile). It is a one-year course requiring a basic knowledge of basic music notation (the stave and simple note values) and will best suit those who already play an instrument at Grade 2 level or above.

Course Method

Lessons are designed to inspire students, not just give information, and there will be plenty of opportunity for interaction. Students will be given short exercises to complete during the lesson and will need both a manuscript book and a regular notebook for this.

Homework is set from All in One to Grade 5 (3rd edition; ISBN 9780993447501) and CGP GCSE Music Complete Revision and Practice. AQA (2020 edition; ISBN 9781789086287) which must be procured in advance, along with the answer book for All in One to Grade 5 (ISBN 9780993447549). Homework is self-marked and any arising problems can be discussed in the lesson. Also required is the ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory Practice Papers 2022 (ISBN 9781786015372). Occasional tests will be set from these papers and marked by the teacher. Access to a piano or keyboard (a cheap one is adequate) will also be necessary for homework.

A video recording is made of each lesson (with only the teacher visible) and upon request it can be made temporarily available to a student who missed the lesson.
