Music Theory Lessons by Email 

MyMusicTheory provides music theory services by email. We can correct your work, or provide lessons by email.


Service Details Cost
Marking Service
  • We can mark and give detailed feedback on exercises or compositions from any source (i.e. from this website or any theory books or past exam papers or elsewhere) up to grade 8.
  • We do a quick assessment of your work and write back to you, telling you roughly how many minutes we would have to spend marking it. If your work is mostly correct, it will be very quick to mark. If there are a lot of mistakes it will take longer. Higher grades require more time than lower ones.
  • If you accept this evaluation, we would then send you an Paypal invoice for however many minutes of lessons you wish to purchase, or you can use the PayPal button to pay now.
  • When the payment has been received, you can then send us your work by email as frequently as you wish.
  • You will need to be able to either photograph or scan your answers in order to attach them by email.
  • We will reply by email with marks, comments and advice, and let you know how many minutes have been used up. (We calculate to the nearest minute).
  • We do not currently mark any GCSE, A/AS level or AP music theory work.

£20 per hour (minimum 30 minutes)

Your Teacher

All marking is done by myself - Victoria Williams. I hold a BA (Hons) (2.1) in Music from the University of Leeds (1995). 

I will always reply within 48 hours and usually the response is the same day.

[If you don't get a reply, please check your spam folder. I can also be contacted via Facebook or LinkedIn, if all else fails!]


If you decide that the marking service is not up to your expectations, please let us know why and we will refund your payment.


We advise you to always handwrite your answers, because computer music processing software usually automatically corrects mistakes, aligns notes and so on.

We recommend sending in questions in ones or twos - this allows you to read and understand our comments before continuing.

If you send a large batch of questions to mark, we will normally mark only a few of them and then ask if you want us to continue or if you would like to resubmit your answers in the light of what you have learnt.

Students usually choose their own study materials. However, if you are not sure what level you are or what you need/want to study next, we can advise.
