5.0 out of 5 stars Music Theory in Practise - Grade 2
This grade 2 theory book is good practise for those eager to progress in music studies. It continues on from Music Theory in Practise Grade 1, with more and harder exercises. This book extends some of the topics already covered in Grade 1 and also introduces some more complex theory. It contains exercises in:

3.0 out of 5 stars Please give us the answers
As an adult studying music theory I find the lack of a model answer section a major drawback. OK I know kids do these, but that doesn't stop my 11 year old's DK maths and science workbooks having model answer sections and it would be great to be able to check the answers after you've pencilled them in. As there are only 32 pages I don't think that's alot to ask.

A good book otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music Theory in Practise - Grade 2, 11 May 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Music Theory in Practice (Grade 2) (Paperback)
This grade 2 theory book is good practise for those eager to progress in music studies. It continues on from Music Theory in Practise Grade 1, with more and harder exercises. This book extends some of the topics already covered in Grade 1 and also introduces some more complex theory. It contains exercises in:
· Ledger lines
· Time Signatures
· The Major Keys of A, B flat and E flat
· Triplets
· The minor keys of A, E and D
· Grouping of notes and rests
· Intervals
· Composing simple four-bar rhythms
There is also a list of performance directions required for the Grade 2 Music Theory exam, and some exercises, which are good revision of everything covered in the book. Most sections contain brief instructions. For a full understanding The AB Guide to Music Theory should be bought. There are references throughout the Grade 2 Music Theory Book to the AB Guide. The Grade 2 book covers everything required for the Grade 2 Exam. I would definitely recommend this book.

I agree. The lack of model answers means that these books are really only useful to those studying with a qualified tutor as there is no real way of knowing you are anwering correctly otherwise, especially when progressing onto the Grade 4 and 5 and above level.
