The Grade 5 Theory obstacle

Many students pass their ABRSM Grade 5 Practical Exam but find the mandatory ABRSM Grade 5 Theory difficult to pass.
Many students have not kept up with the theory grades, despite progressing through the first practical exam grades.
Grade 5 Theory is a common obstacle because a pass is needed to move on to ABRSM Grade 6-8 practical exams.
Grade 5 Theory is also a requirement for places at some music colleges and universities.

Myths about the Grade 5 Theory Exam

Tracy says, “I’ve had both parents and students who have come to me, saying that they have heard that the exam is very hard, students at distinction level in their practical exams but previously have barely scraped passes in theory exams.
“This is simply not true, as exam success is all about how theory is taught.
“Many students dislike theory but after taking lessons with us, have said how much they enjoyed learning with us – a key to exam success. Subsequently, many have gone on to pass with distinctions!”

Our Fast Track Grade 5 Theory Exam success

Over the years, we have taken hundreds of students through the Grade 5 Theory Exam and our pass rates are consistently high. 
Two of our students were among the first to take the Grade 5 ABRSM Theory Exam online when it was launched in June 2020. Both students had taken our Fast Track Lessons, both passed with Distinctions. Many more students have followed with the same success.

“What makes Tracy’s approach exceptional is that she very quickly assesses then continues to identify specific knowledge/skill gaps in the particular student which enables her to then address same in a very focused manner. We would highly recommend!”Helen Cole, Ireland

How many lessons are needed?

Up to and including Grade 5, most teachers recommend three months of study to pass each Grade. I have fast tracked all of our students in a fraction of this time.
Some of our students prefer to take one of our intensive courses.
At our first meeting over Zoom, which is free of charge, I can assess where students are up to. This helps them decide how they’d like to progress and how many lessons you’ll need to pass the exam.
