More about the course

The course is flexible across many levels of experience, with each student generally focussing on their own work - whether preparing for an ABRSM music theory grade exam, arranging a song for choir, experimenting with composition, or studying harmony.  

During the class the tutor will circulate to give individual support, and address the group when it would be helpful for everyone to learn more about something - for example notating triplets, or identifying cadences.

The class is for up to five people, and is suitable for those working from grade 2 standard to undergraduate level theory and composition.
