What our reviewers said....

During the development phase of this project we had an exhaustive review process, when we asked music theory and music education experts from around the world to review and give suggestions on the product, and its suitability for different uses globally.

Here is what just one of them said about it....

"I think this is an excellent product and would be very useful in both a private studio and classroom. So often, the students with whom this tool would be used are decent music readers, but don't know all the terminology or exactly how the music goes together. This tool puts it all together quite succinctly"

If you are putting students through grade examinations in theory in exams from the ABRSM, Trinity College London or the Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) then these books align perfectly with the grade levels.

We recommend that you still use official publications and trial exams from the relative examination board, however the books cover all the content required.

Printable Music Theory Books Level OneIf you are not doing grade exams with the students then these books still provide a great opportunity for them to cover everything they need to know.

PLUS you can legitimately increase your income by printing out these workbooks and selling them onto your students. You can charge them less than the price in the shops, give them a better product and make some money at the same time. Everyone wins!


Frequently Asked Questions

I'm in the USA - What about different terminology for different areas?

Glad you asked! A purchase of this product gives you access to two distinct versions of the materials, with every language difference carefully noted and changed.

  • All rhythm names are changed: Crotchets becomes Quarter Notes, Minims become Half Notes etc
  • Stave becomes Staff
  • Bars become Measures
  • Ledger Lines become Leger Lines
  • Semitone becomes Half Step

european and american terminology

We went to the extent of asking experts in the UK, USA and Canada for their feedback on the language and structure of the book, so that it would suit the language styles of all areas.

If you find any of the language incorrect for your area then you have the opportunity to ask for a revision, and provided it is within the scope of Grade One theory we'll have it done for you straight away.

Do the books cover all styles of music?

These books are designed around the classical music theory syllabi of the major examination boards from around the world, as this gives us a structure and framework for the levels. However these are fundamentals that are relevant to every style, popular and classical. Where chords are referenced we use modern chord symbols and modern terminologies... while still including everything needed for classical examinations and general musicianship.

How do I know that they are suitable for grade levels in theory?

During the comprehensive review process, we asked experts to give us detailed feedback on the book and evaluate its use in different teaching contexts. We wanted to make absolutely sure that it met the grade requirements for the ABRSM, Trinity and AMEB.
