Music Theory

Whatever you play, from trumpet to tuba, you'll do it best if you get to know your crotchets and quavers! That's one good reason for studying theory.

Here's another: theory passes at grade 5 and above open doors to higher-

grade performing exams and even university. (Theory and instrumental passes at grades 6 to 8 equate to A levels.)

I offer special support to budding composers of all ages, with the chance to contribute to the Worldwide Song Project, which I direct. (Please scroll to read a press report on one of my students.)

My approach to theory for children & teens is to make it fun.

Thanks to their knowledge of music theory, these two very different performers both understand how their instruments work and how to make sense of every blob and squiggle on the printed page!
