All-In-One: Revision Booklets

(for ABRSM and Trinity College London students)

The following Revision Booklets are optional yet very useful, providing extra practice beyond the many exercises already included in the main work books (All-In-One to Grade 5/ All-In-One: Grades 1-3 /All-In-One: Grades 4-5). These Revision Booklets follow a similar structure to the All-In-One music theory workbooks (chapters are split into Notation, Time and Tonality) yet provide an exam type experience due to the careful wording of questions, in particular the General Exercise questions featured at the end of each book which ask questions in relation to a piece of music. They were published before 2018, therefore the wording of  questions isn’t quite the same as those found in the current ABRSM exam papers (published January 2018). HOWEVER changes are only superficial and minor because the subject matter remains exactly the same. These test papers still retain the compositional exercises which the new exams omit, which some people may consider a bonus. BUY ALL FIVE FOR A SPECIAL DISCOUNT DEAL. See        

All-In-One: Practice Papers for VCM Students

The following practice papers are available as pdf downloads and help Victoria College of Music (VCM) students prepare for the new 2020 VCM Music Theory Exams.  Please select the individual grades, read the description and move your cursor over the images, to see close up detail of the pdfs themselves. These papers give students an idea of the content of each grade, as the syllabus sets forth (i.e. they show how questions ‘could’ be written in an exam ) however they are not exam papers and bear no resemblance to Victoria College of music own examination papers. To request exam papers, written entirely by Victoria College of Music you should contact VCM exam board
