The highly successful Zero to Grade 5 Hero course gets you to Grade 5 theory in a week!

Once you have finished the course, I don’t leave you high and dry like others do – I will mark all your practice papers too. 

Grade 5 Theory - Why It Is Important

Qualification

A Grade 5 theory pass allows you to move on to Grades 6, 7 and 8 in the ABRSM music syllabus.

Knowledge

Music theory is "how to write music down" and "how music works" - melody, rhythm, harmony, structure, form etc. An ideal pre-requisite for studying any instrument properly.

Listening skills

Although Grade 5 theory is on paper, it teaches you how to analyse a short piece Analysing music helps you to grasp most major musical elements swiftly.

Sight reading

You will need to recognise intervals - which will prove essential in sight reading development, and note reading in general.
