The composition section of the ABRSM's grade 5 music theory exam is compulsory and worth 15% of the whole exam - it's a real make-or-break question.
You can only get a "distinction" (90%+) overall if you do really well in the composition question.
Come and join me for more than 90 minutes' HD video instruction, 5 flash quizzes, 9 PDFs of notes to download, music examples and online support!
We'll cover these topics in depth: Adapting the given opening, rhythm, melody, performance directions, harmonic structure/cadences.

The most important thing to understand about this question is that you are being tested on applying music theory, rather than your skills as a composer. After all, it is not a composition exam! You don't need to be a budding Mozart; in fact you don't even need to be able to "hear music in your head". You simply need to follow the guidelines set out in this course, and success will be yours.
As you go along, you'll get plenty of revision of other important music theory topics, such as key and time signatures, how to work out key, melodic minor scales, beaming and intervals.
Each step is presented to you in HD video with an accompanying PDF, so that you can easily follow what I'm explaining and read up on it again for consolidation. You can also use the discussion board to ask questions - I'm happy to help!
I've also got some real-life compositions to show you, so that you can learn from others' mistakes.
A little about your teacher
I've been tutoring students in music theory for over 8 years, and my speciality is training for the ABRSM music theory exams. I've taken many students from being abysmal failures at composition to waltzing through on exam day and bagging a merit (80%+) or distinction (90%+) for the exam.
Hope to see you soon!
