Excellent material for the run-up to the ABRSM exams
on 24 January 2014
Excellent material to work on, after you have presumably finished working through the Music Theory in Practice books of the relevant level(also ABRSM). Every year has its own set of 4 papers published (this set is for 2013), so it is useful to work through timed papers from the last few years (I've used the 2009-2011-2012 papers and will be ordering this one too). I also use the Eric Taylor Music Theory textbooks, although note that neither are exactly child-friendly and even my first-year undergraduates felt a bit uneasy with the presentation; however the Music Theory in Practice workbooks continue to be the best option available, despite their own shortcomings. Note also that Music Theory Answers is always a separate publication- you can always check for clarification on the ABRSM website itself. Both the Papers and the Answers have very clear titles stating the content exactly, so cannot really be confused. As a teacher I don't use the model answers booklet, but perhaps somebody with less experience or a pupil would probably need to see them. Good luck in your exams!
