Grade 5 Theory is a prerequisite for taking Associated Board instrumental exams from Grade 6 onwards. Theory tuition is combined in students’ piano lessons and runs in parallel to practical study. However, some students of other instruments simply require help with the Grade 5 Theory exam. Individual or group teaching sessions can be tailored to your specific needs.

Music theory is a complex skill requiring broad musical knowledge and attention to detail. Caroline believes in a methodical approach. Once the essentials are understood, practice papers are completed and providing students are ready they are entered for the Associated Board Grade 5 exam.

The examination success rate under Caroline’s tuition has been 98%. Examinations normally take place in February, June and October.

Fees: £36.00 per hour or adjusted accordingly for group sessions.
