Music Theory Practice - A Complete Course for Grades 1-5 - NEW for 2021

Following the recent changes in the ABRSM Theory syllabus, MusicOnline UK is pleased to announce a NEW Edition of the workbook

 Music Theory Practice - A Complete Course for Grades 1-5

NEW for 2021


In the new online theory exams ABRSM The requirement to demonstrate accurate copying of music has been removed although in this book there are still written exercises, less emphasis is placed on writing as this is no longer required in the exams
Other changes in the syllabus reflected in this new edition Grade 2: candidates currently have a choice of the harmonic or melodic form of minor scales. This is changing to harmonic. Grade 3: questions about phrase structure are no longer included. Grade 5: identifying the progression 6/4 5/3 (Ic-V) is no longer be required. Grade 5: the requirement that candidates can recognise and name perfect, plagal and imperfect cadences has been added. Currently candidates have to indicate suitable chord progressions for two cadences – now they have to name those cadences.

The ABRSM have themselves published a new series of workbooks ranging from £6-8 per grade WITHOUT ANSWERS (these need to be purchased separately for nearly the same price again) whereas we are offering this workbook complete with explanations, questions and answers for ALL grades 1-5 for just £12.99.

This is only newly published, so there are no reviews as yet, but below are some reviews of the 1st edition:
