Grade 6 Theory – a Practical Approach follows on from Grade 5 Theory – the Easy Way!
To begin with, a recap of some of the work covered in Grade 5 and eventually expanding methods of transposition and realising ornaments.
The harmony section moves step by step, building gradually from recognising chords and appropriate choice of cadences, to harmonising whole tunes, realising figured basses and writing tunes using strong harmonic structures. Each step includes worked examples and exercises.
A Musical Knowledge section follows, including a brief overview of Western Music, time-lines, hints for recognising different eras visually and aurally, Orchestral instruments (ranges, transpositions etc.), and tables of the most commonly used musical terms in Italian, French and German.
The final section has extensive practice questions for each of the harmony questions, concluding with 20 Musical Examples with multiple questions on each.
