Music theory does not need to be hard and boring.
Honestly, it can be fun!
I use a range of theory books and sheets for different age groups
and different stages of learning.
I like to gently bring theory into my lessons
right from the start,
because knowledge of theory is important
and it supports the practical side.
How the theory is approached will vary with each individual.
Some have theory books right from the beginning,
but with or without these, I weave in the theory
using a variety of techniques.
I think grade 5 theory knowledge is very useful
for musicians of intermediate standard
- whether or not the certificate is required in order to take grade 6 -
and so far, my grade 5 theory students have always chosen
to sit the exam to mark their achievement.
Sometimes people come to me from other music teachers
specifically for grade 5 theory lessons,
as at this standard, it can be difficult to find time for theory
during music lessons.
Whether you're in need of lessons in order to take
your grade 5 theory,
or you'd like some music theory support,
or you're interested in learning an instrument
combined with some music theory
and you'd like lessons in Cheltenham or online
look no further.
I can help!
I offer lessons at Holly Tree Melody.
