At grade 3, we delve deeper into the slightly more complex topics such as keys with up to 4 flats or sharps in them, harmonic and melodic minor scales, and simple and compound time signatures (6/8, 9/8 and 12/8).
Please note that the grade 3 course/syllabus overlaps with grade 2, so we will also review some topics from grade 2 (those that normally cause the most confusion!)
We'll also review some of the topics from the lower grades which cause the most difficulty, such as beaming notes together in groups.
The course includes:
PDF coursebook with comprehensive explanations and examples of each topic
PDF includes hundreds of practice exercises (answers included)
PDF also includes a full mock test based on the style of the real exam
Apps and quizzes for learning the foreign musical terms for this grade.
Teacher support via the messaging board
Reference materials include all the foreign terms you need for grade 3, including those learned at grades 1 and 2, as the syllabus is cumulative, plus complete examples of all scales in both treble and bass clefs.
