This course is planned to provide a foundation for the study of Musicianship and ensure a thorough grasp of music literacy. Designed as a series of workbooks, it introduces and develops the written and aural skills essential for success. Each book is based on a ‘Topic-per-Page’ format and divided into parts. At the end of each part there is a test of concepts and skills, as well as a General Observation exercise.
Music Workout – Preparatory includes many innovative rhythm-clapping and sight-singing exercises which develop the necessary skills as components of an integrated approach to the Theory of Music.
Music Workout – Preparatory is based on the syllabus of the local Centre examinations in Theory of the Royal Irish Academy of Music. It is also very suitable for use by students preparing for other examinations.
