Grade 4 Revision Booklet
All-In-One Grade 4 music theory revision booklet is useful for the few students who require a little extra practice material in the final stages before an exam (all the Revision booklets are optional because plenty of practice material can already be found All-In-One to Grade 5/ All-In-One: Grades 1-3 and All-In-One: 4-5). Covers topics found in the Grade 4 exam syllabus for both Associated Board and Trinity College London and assumes knowledge of all previous grades.
(All-In-One Series. 32 pages, paperback)
Grade 4 music theory revises the alto clef, duplets, technical note names, double sharps and flats, ornaments, voices in score and more. You will be expected to have an elementary knowledge of orchestral instruments at this stage and also to compose a rhythm to words [added note: these Revision Booklets were published before 2018, therefore the wording of questions isn’t quite the same in a few places as those found in ABRSM exam papers printed after January 2018. Subject matter remains the same apart from the fact these test papers still retain the compositional exercises which the new exams omit].
Specific Trinity College London subjects include knowledge of natural minor scales, arpeggios, broken chords and writing 4-part chords using key signatures you should know. Knowledge is also tested of labeling chords in their inversions and dominant 7th Chords (among other things).
BEWARE: There is no Answer book available for the Revision booklets (unlike the other books in the All-In-One series, where Answers are available). Rachel is considering writing them. Meanwhile, if you do not have a teacher to mark your work and need just a little help, please don’t hesitate to contact Rachel via the contact page.
