November 2017 4:00 - 6:30 pm: Theory - Grade 2
Small group workshop for those taking their Grade 2 theory exam this autumn.
February 2017 Theory : Sat 8th & 22nd
These workshops helped to prepare students for Grades 1 & 2 ABRSM theory exams in a group setting.
and Aural Workshops
The ARSM examinations require fluent scale-playing as set out by the board at different levels. There is not always enough time for scales to get to the required standard in the weekly lessons and I have found a good mornings work in a group session near to the exam period an extremely helpful and rather more fun option. Please keep checking this page for further workshop updates.
The aural workshops cover pitch, intervals, musical directions, rhythm & timing. These skills are needed not only for the ABRSM exams, but to enhance better 'listening' which is paramount to good musicianship. Great fun is usually had by all!
workshop is designed for beginners/Grade1 and will cover some essential
music theory, enhance aural ability and encourage the exploration
and understanding of all genres of music beyond the everyday mainstream
& commercial styles that bombard our daily lives.
workshop is designed for young people (average age 6 - 10) who would
like to improve their general music knowledge to a higher standard,
in a fun, small group situation.
at 'how things work' in written music, rhythm and harmony, using
styles including classical, rock & pop, flamenco etc., anything
goes! Students are also encouraged to bring along a favourite music
piece of their choice on cd or mp3.
limited places, booking preference will be given to students of
the piano school and thereafter on a 'first come, first serve' basis.
