Music Theory

As a teacher over the years I have learnt how much pupils often dread doing music theory! The books get hidden or 'lost'...I've heard it all!


 However, once your practical playing reaches Grade 5 it is such a shame not to continue to Grade 6 (but you need to do Grade 5 theory!)

Working through a little theory every week will help build up your knowledge gradually....then it's not a big deal! :-)

I recommend to all my pupils to work through the Music Theory for Young Musicians workbooks, they're fantastic! Although they say for Young Musicians, they're perfect for all ages. (Click the pictures for links to buy)

"During Quarantine I passed my Grade 5 virtual Music theory exam by taking online lessons with Kate! She gave me the right tools and methods to progress through the theory books and always found away to make things clear even without face to face tuition. I would highly recommend her and her teaching techniques."
