Music Theory

For young musicians destined to take ABRSM practical exams beyond Grade 5 please note you will require Grade 5 theory before entering for Grade 6+ practical. Jasspa runs yearlong group lessons for Grades 1, 3 and 5 Theory as well as 1:1 classes in preparation for this.

Theory is invaluable for all musicians of Grade 4+ instrumental standard as it broadens musical awareness and supports instrumental work. Pupils should apply for a class 1-2 grades lower than their current practical level. A small amount of homework is given each week and a mock exam at the end of the spring term. Group classes are 40 minutes long and are usually timetabled between 9am and 12 midday. Individual lessons are 30 minutes long and can be arranged throughout the day.

Lesson times 2019-20
Grade 3 theory class 9.45am – 10.25am
Grade 5 theory class 10.30am – 11.10am

An external examination is sat at JASSPA in June.
