Our Theory of Music syllabus responds to modern teaching and learning styles with Theory of Music Workbooks presenting the study of musical theory in bright and practical formats, attractive to both the student and the teacher. Not only will it help you to progress more quickly on your instrument, studying for our Theory exams will help you to gain a broad understanding of classical music.
Although there are no theory prerequisites for taking any Trinity College London practical graded exams, theoretical musical knowledge works to enhance and support practical studies.
Candidates should ensure that they are using the fourth impression or onwards of the Theory of Music syllabus.
