Rudiments and Theory of Music
The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music have for many years set a benchmark for music students to pass their grade 5 or above in music theory before they can enter for Grades 6,7 or 8 Practical exams. They believe that this level of theory knowledge will give a greater understanding of music, resulting in the best possible performance at the higher grades.

Grade 5 in Practical Musicianship or solo Jazz also fulfils the requirement for entering Grades 6,7 or 8 Practical exams.
