Aural Tests

Fergus Black prepares students for aural tests at Grades 6,7 and 8, and for auditions. Sometimes, other instrumental teachers are reluctant to take their students through practice aural tests for the higher grades - perhaps because of a lack of lesson time, or because the tests need advanced keyboard skills to administer them.

Music Theory

Theory is really Musical Literacy – writing music, and understanding how it is put together. Students of ABRSM practical exams need Grade 5 Theory to progress further, but that isn't why they should do it!
There are pages on Theory on this site. Click here. Singers face especial difficulty with Theory - see here.
There are half-term courses on Music Theory.
