Did you know...?

  • The composition question in the grade 5 music theory exam is worth 15%- it could make the difference between a pass or a fail, or getting a distinction!
  • It's marked in a complicated way - you are expected to use your all-round knowledge of music theory to make a good composition.
  • It DOES matter how neat your work is.
  • There is no "one right answer" for the composition questions, but there are lots of things which would be most definitely "wrong!" Do you know what they all are?
