Grades 1-5 Theory

Theory Classes are available on Saturdays from 11:00. Theory tuition is for students of all ages and especially important for anyone working towards practical music exams. Theory is taught by qualified music teachers from foundation to advanced level.

Individual one-to-one theory lessons are also available.

Grades 6-8 Theory

Are you interested in taking your musical knowledge to the next level? Are you planning on going to university? Do you want to finally have a complete understanding of how music works? Then these classes are for you! Imagine being able to analyse any piece of music to understand how it was composed; or hearing a piece of music modulate into other keys and understand how it’s done; or composing your own string quartets, four-part Bach chorales or any other type of music you want. Come along to the advanced theory classes on Mondays with Vanecek 5pm to 6pm (shared lesson with Dr Anselm McDonnell) or Thursday zoom 6pm to 7pm (shared online lesson with Dr Declan Plummer), acquire the skills, and find out how it’s done!

Individual one-to-one theory lessons are also available.


Those students who sit and pass ABRSM theory exams at grades 6 to 8 will also receive extra UCAS points which can be used as part of a University or College application in the UK!
