I’m still working away at my desk - it’s definitely my happy place! I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve completed all of the lessons for the ABRSM Discovering Music Theory Grades 1 and 5. These are all available on my Patreon Channel, and of course they are being scheduled daily on YouTube. My next task is to work through the ABRSM Discovering Music Theory Grade 2.
Don’t forget that the grades build up in an accumulative manner. You must work through each grade and build on the information. If you are studying at Grade 5, you still need to remember all the topics in the earlier grades. Sometimes it’s a good idea to revisit earlier grades to ‘brush away the cobwebs’. Enjoy your studies!
I’m busy beavering away recording lessons to work through the ABRSM Discovering Music Theory workbooks, and so I’m staying at the desk and under the camera this week. Lessons continued to be scheduled daily.
I’m so thrilled to announce that I now have two patrons! All of the ABRSM Discovering Music Theory Grade 1 lessons are now available on my Patreon Channel and the final two chapters of ABRSM Discovering Music Theory Grade 5 will be added this week.
I’m working through everything you need for your studies, so let’s get those pencils sharpened and let’s get cracking!
From new ABRSM on-line exam entry systems to new remotely assessed exams, new computer software and a new way of teaching, this year has been a lot to adjust to .Not to mention so many changes in life in general. It’s no wonder that I feel that I’m a bit behind schedule in what I had planned to do by this time. However, as my Gran used to say, “A change is as good as a rest.” There is no doubt that all of the changes over this last year have channelled my teaching practice into a whole new dimension. It’s been a bit of a refining fire, but the resultant clarity has been worth it!
A change in the programme for choir, from Mozart Requiem to various animal related pieces of music, initially left me moaning and grumpy. But after singing the works of Eric Whitacre Aaron Copeland and Benjamin Britten, I realise that I was too hasty to cast judgement. We are enjoying singing, and enjoying making music - and that’s what it’s all about!
