Music Theory – Grade One




The second book in the “MUSIC THEORY” series explores rests, dotted notes/rests, new time signatures and rhythms and Italian terms.  Students are introduced to major scales and key signatures, scale degree numbers, and simple chords.  Each chapter features clear ‘teach-yourself’ information, examples and questions for students to complete independently.  Two sample exams are included (in the same format as used by the Australian Guild of Music) as well as blank manuscript paper.  Students should be able to confidently sit the Australian Guild of Music Grade One Theory Examination after completing this book.
