A brand new, 8 week, online course helping you to prepare for the ABRSM Grade 5 Theory exam

While learning all the requirements for the exam, I will also ‘debunk’ some of the myths and difficulties surrounding ‘theory’. Everything will be introduced in musical context and not just as an academic exercise as I find this helps you retain the information while at the same time understanding how and why things work.

Course Dates:

  • Sunday 14th April to Sunday 2nd June 2024 at 5pm [FULLY BOOKED]
  • Sunday 18th August to 6th Otober 2024 at 5pm

Maximum 4 students per class and each class lasting an hour.

Total Cost: £120 per person
