Grade 5 Theory Courses

During the Covid 19 lockdown we are running Zoom courses and have spaces available now!

Please ring 0118 9712555 or email

Our aim is to get a group of people together who wish to do Grade 5 theory in one or two term’s time and condense as much learning into as short a time as possible. 

​The Two-Day Course starts at 9.50am and the first day finishes at 4pm. The second day is 10am to 3pm. Whether on your own or with friends we can arrange a course especially for you.  The course costs £320 which includes all materials, tuition, lunch and lots of snacks.  We are sometimes asked if we can run a condensed one-day version of this course, which is also possible.  Contact us for more information.

​​Between the course and the exam you will need to work through at least 10 past papers. We offer a marking service which costs £10 per paper for which you receive a detailed report with references back to the course notes.  We aim to mark these within a day or two.


You do not need to bring anything with you except a smile and a desire to write quickly!

This recipe works and is a catalyst for stimulating interest!


Some people think of music theory as a dull subject. We are determined that it should not be so and we spend time on the course having fun, making and eating food and consuming knowledge.

After the first theory session you will have a chance to prepare your own lunch. In the second session there is even more fun whilst learning and then you will do a little more in the kitchen. In the third session everything starts to make sense, then there is LUNCH to prepare you for the afternoon! The afternoon is taken at a pace to suit you. The more work you do now the further you will get towards doing some past papers and practising for your Grade 5 the next day.


The One-Day Course covers all the material that we do in the 2 Day course...but a lot faster!! This suits people who have already done a little theory and can write quickly. It is a challenge, but people have found it well within their grasp and have enjoyed the experience.

Whatever your age, experience or eating habits we will try our hardest to make your days worthwhile. Let us know of any worries or dietary preferences. Wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to get a little floury!
