Why use written papers as practice for an online exam?
It's simple - this may be the only time you learn how to correctly write music using a pencil!
The written papers are excellent preparation for the online test which uses exactly the same knowledge, but will also
ensure candidates can write music neatly and accurately. Grade 6+ theory exams are still written tests so this is vital for
those going on to higher grades, GCSE and A-Level. Next planned zoom courses:
