Grouping Rests Part 3 Trinity College London Theory of Music Workbook Grade 1 with Sharon Bill



Welcome to my Music Theory Tutorials. In this music theory lesson I continue to work through the Trinity College London Grade 1 Theory of Music Workbook. In this tutorial I continue to explain the topic of grouping rests and also revise the topics of grouping notes. Exercises with mistakes are re-written accurately, correcting stems, grouping and beaming notes and correctly grouping rests. This lesson covers page 38 of the Trinity College London Grade 1 Theory of Music Workbook.

I have been teaching music theory for over twenty five years and I’ll help you every step of the way - just as if you were sitting next to me.

Music Theory is an integral part of any musician’s studies. Understanding the structures behind the music we play supports our practise and performance. Even if you don’t play an instrument understanding how music is constructed helps us to be a more informed listener.

I LOVE music theory! It’s like peeling back the layers of the music to look at the nuts and bolts that hold it all together and make the music work.

Grouping Rests Part 2 Trinity College London Theory of Music Workbook Grade 1 with Sharon Bill



Welcome to my Music Theory Tutorials. In this music theory lesson I continue to work through the Trinity College London Grade 1 Theory of Music Workbook. In this tutorial I continue to explain the topic of grouping rests. Rests are grouped according to the time signature, and each new beat usually requires a new rest to make it easier to read the rhythms and see where the beat falls. However, in certain time signatures these rules can change. I explain these differences. This lesson covers page 37 of the Trinity College London Grade 1 Theory of Music Workbook.

Artful Designs by Sharon Bill Audiobook Reading Chapter 13 Part 2



'Artful Designs' is the second 'Beth Williams' murder mystery by Sharon Bill. Audiobook reading chapter 13 part 2.

Mere hours after a Constable watercolour sketch is featured in a presentation at a meeting of Mossleigh Women’s Institute the original is stolen from the Whitworth Art Gallery. It seems that the cultured veneer of the art world shields a much seedier underworld where theft is just the icing on the cake. Beth and her twin brother, DCI Benedict James, join forces to get to the bottom of the affair. Although DCI James must pursue the official lines of enquiry Beth finds that a more abstract approach draws the threads of the mystery together.

Beth is a piano tutor and member of her local WI and is aptly placed to tap into seemingly insignificant details to get right to the heart of the affair. When all hope fades and the Old Masters look to be forever tainted by sordid crime Beth, with the help of her unassuming friends, restores the balance of justice and the intrinsic beauty of artistic endeavour.

'Artful Designs' is available from Amazon in eBook £1.99 and paperback £7.99
