19. Handwriting Music Exercises

Grade One Music Theory Exercises - Lesson 19: Handwriting Music Exercises

Suitable for:  ABRSM Grade 1   Trinity Grade 1   GCSE   AP Music Theory Beginners 

 

Handwriting Music

This part of the music theory exam is something which is really easy to practise at home! Find any piece of music, take a piece of manuscript paper, (or download some for free), and copy exactly what you see. Choose music which has a lot of performance directions on it - dynamics, foreign terms and symbols, and choose music which has different rhythms, especially with beamed notes. 

Use a well-sharpened pencil and a ruler. 

When you've finished, look very carefully at your work for mistakes, or better still, ask somebody else to look at it for you (preferably someone who knows about music theory!)

Keep practising!

 

Here are a couple of excerpts you can try to copy:

1.

copy-the-melody-1

 

2.

copy-the-melody-2
