What will I study?

Grade 5 Theory is recognised as a landmark musical achievement and is equivalent in standard to GCSE Music. A pass in Grade 5 Theory is also a prerequisite for any student who wishes to take an ABRSM practical exam beyond Grade 5. The knowledge and skills acquired in Grade 5 theory will greatly improve your ability in musical analysis and composition. 

Is this course right for me?

For students who already have Grade 5 Theory, instruction is also given in Grades 6-8 theory.

Where next?

Grades 6 and above carry UCAS points.  The upper levels of Theory are recognised as excellent training for any student wishing to study Music or Music Technology in H.E.
