There are some things you need to watch out for, and that is the human tendency to skip things they think they know. You may look at something, think it is easy, and skip over it. I have seen this happening many times with my students. Luckily I am there to set them straight. I will not be with you to set you straight. That is why you need to do every worksheet diligently. If there is something you have done before, and you think you know it, don’t skip over it.
Music is like mathematics. You won’t think of skipping exercises in mathematics with the excuse; “I did this yesterday; I don’t need to do it again.” Exercises are there to make sure you get the topic, and that you stay in practice. It is the same with music theory. You need to stay in practice. You don’t want to come to the test and then do something wrong because you’ve forgotten how to do it because you didn’t get enough practice.
Trust me please. I’m a music teacher with a passion for music theory. You need to do some drilling exercises. My students all do very well in their theory exams.
And speaking about exams, do you want to do one? Come on, I’m sure you’ll love the satisfaction of making the grade. Okay, if you’re an adult, maybe not grade one. But grade 5? Let’s work towards that goal, shall we?
