Although the main aim of music is to produce beautiful sounds, the understanding
of the Theory of Music make the learning far more reinforced.
Having a good knowledge of the meaning of the information written within the
sheet music will help greatly in enhancing the final result in the
quality of the playing.
Theory is like having a recipe book with all of the ingredients, showing how to
produce the final product, putting everything into perspective
and create a polished performance.
Grade 5 theory is required, or an A level in music education to proceed onto
grades 6 and above. Starting early during the learning of the instrument
will have you well prepared for the future grades.
