There’s More to Playing the Piano


Do you want to…

A – understand repertoire better, learn to improvise, compose, appreciate the skills and techniques of the great composers?

B – pass an exam?

They’re both honourable aims and they are completely complementary. If you absorb all the information in these pages and you try all the practical activities, you should end up with lots of new skills and you will be well on the way to passing the Grade 5 theory exam!

Unlike other theory resources, I have included a practical activity at the end of each chapter.

When you see this picture, try the activity at the piano. It will help you to understand the theory presented in the chapter and it will introduce you to some keyboard musicianship skills.
