Examination boards require to pass a Music Theory exam before being able to enter for advanced practical grades. Also many students have found beneficial entering Music Theory grades from the very start in a progressive way and making it a complementary study parallel to the instrument's practice and technique.
This lessons may be very useful for "self taught" persons, those who are picking up an instrument after a long time or young ones preparing for GCSE and A levels in Music.
Although our Tutors will incorporate principles of Music Theory within their lessons, you may wish to have specific lessons directed to deepen your understanding or preparing you for a Theory exam.
Music Theory & Sight Reading
How we can assist you in:
SIGHT READING & AURAL TEST
Most practical graded exams include a Sight Reading and Aural Test. These skills can be mastered not only with practice, but also with some tips and deeper understanding of the way music it is written and should be read. Advanced players may benefit from this type of lessons too.
Although our Tutors will incorporate Sight Reading and Aural Test technique within their lessons, you may wish to have specific lessons directed to become more skilful and build up your confidence in front of a music sheet or in reading music in different keys or in more than one key simultaneously.
A good musician should be constantly working on improving these skills along with the practical technique. Depending on the instrument there may be different approaches and aspects that need to be taken into consideration. That is why we need to know what are your needs and goals so that we will be able to recommend the right Tutor.
