Music Theory in Practice Grade 2 Contents
Eric Taylor’s Music Theory in Practice Grade 2 helps you prepare for your grade 2 theory exam. The book guides you through each section of the exam with clear instructions on how to complete each test. After each test has been introduced there are example exercises for you to complete. The back of the book contains questions and exercises based upon a short musical extract which is the last part of your exam - the questions are made up of general musical theory knowledge that you have previously covered. A glossary of performance directions, symbols and musical terms can also be found towards the back of the ABRSM Music Theory in Practice Grade 2 book. It is a great resource for you to refer back to when you're unsure of what a musical term means whilst preparing for your grade 2 theory exam and practising your instrument.
Other resources we recommend
Although information on how to complete each section of your theory exam is included in Music Theory in Practice Grade 2, we highly recommend to work through this book with a theory teacher. For self-teaching and general reference either The AB Guide to Music Theory (Part 1) or the ABRSM First Steps in Music Theory provide much of the information needed for your theory exams (grades 1-5). The Music Theory in Practice Grade 2 Answers are also available to purchase so that you can see the best way to answer the questions and be successful in your exam.
