Music Theory

Here’s a guide to music theory. The basics section should cover most things around ABRSM Grade 1-3, intermediate will be roughly Grade 4-6 and advanced will be Grade 7-8. However, this is not an ABRSM revision guide and may include things that are not required for one of their exams or omit subjects that are, especially in the intermediate and advanced sections.

This is very much a work in progress, so it may take a little while for everything to be included.
