Music Theory

Studying Music theory will help music students understand the structure and form of music. Rhythm, harmony, bars and beats will be better understand and enable the student to make faster progress with their playing.  

The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music stipulate that candidates entering for grade 6 and above practical exams must have passed grade 5 music theory. The other examining boards however do not ask for this requirement.


We recommend that students study music theory alongside their practical studies from the beginning.

Music theory information and practice exercises are included in some of the good instrumental tutor books but their are also some very good books dedicated solely to music theory.


Below are the books that we would recommend
