Going beyond Grade 5 Theory (Spring and Summer terms) (MUS 17)

  • Day and time: Wednesday 12:45 - 13:45
  • Length of course: 2 terms. Spring (10 Weeks), Summer (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 8
  • Start date: 13 January 2021
  • Description:

    This course is for members who have worked at Music Theory up to Grade 5 level and wish to progress further. A previous pass at Grade 5 is not obligatory.

    Theory Grades 1 to 5 cover the rudiments of music notation. After that comes the much more exciting and creative study of real Music Theory, which embraces harmony, counterpoint, analysis, music history, composing, orchestration, acoustics.

    This course will initially use the existing Grade 6 curriculum and published materials. If there is continuing interest we will move on to Grades 7 and 8 at a later stage.

    Members will be asked to purchase an appropriate workbook (around £10) - details later.
