Theory

All choristers, and many non-choristers, receive lessons in music theory at King's. For the choristers, our aim is for the boys to have gained their Grade 5 theory by the time they become full choristers in Year 6; for the non-choristers, we run two theory clubs also in preparation for the Grade 5 examination.

All pupils receive a basic grounding in notation within their class music lessons, whilst those (rare, but not unknown) pupils who wish to do so can continue to Grade 6 theory and beyond.
