About ABRSM Music Theory

Music theory and musicianship development become increasingly important as instrumental skills progress in helping students perform with sensitivity, understanding, and confidence. ABRSM Music Theory Online prepares students for exams grades 1-8.

ABRSM Music Theory exams give students a thorough understanding of the building blocks of music. To summarize, this starts with the basics of rhythm and note reading, going on to cover harmony and counterpoint, and building to composition and a broad knowledge of Western music. Students will finish understanding how to read music and grasping a general history of music’s composers, their works’ structures, styles, and periods.

A longstanding ABRSM benchmark is to pass Grade 5 Music Theory. In short, candidates must pass this exam before entering Grades 6, 7, or 8 Practical exams. A thorough understanding of the elements of music is essential for a full and satisfying performance at these higher grades. Their score reading skills and awareness multiply with the theoretical knowledge they gain. To learn more about ABRSM music theory exams, read our blogpost.
