Ideal for students who have taken Grade 4 or 5 practical exams and are now preparing to take the ABRSM Grade 5 Theory exam.


An intensive three-day course to prepare students for the ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory exam. The course is aimed at young people of secondary school age* who need to pass Grade 5 Music Theory ahead of their Grade 6+ practical, or students wanting to enhance their theoretical knowledge in preparation for GCSE Music. Students enrolling for this course must be at least Grade 3 standard on their chosen instrument/voice. The course is open to all students, including those who are not students of Berkshire Music Trust.

* Children in years 5 and 6 will be accepted onto the course at the discretion of their instrumental teacher.


Before the course:

Students are advised to work through the ABRSM Discovering Music Theory books, or equivalent, in advance of the course. This will help them to achieve their potential.


After the course:

Students will need to commit to working through at least seven past papers (provided) after the course. Experienced Berkshire Music Trust tutors will mark and grade their work.

There will be a refresher session on Tuesday 5th November (included in the cost of the course) in preparation for the ABRSM Music Theory Grade 5 exam.

The ABRSM Music Theory exam must be arranged and paid for separately by students and is not included in the fee for this course. Please speak to your tutor for any advice you may need about arranging the exam. Please note that this is an online exam for which the student will need access to a computer.
