Hello Music Theory was started back in 2014 and our aim is that no one will fail their music theory exam. We’re trying to accomplish this by providing awesome learning resources to make studying and teaching music theory super easy.

On this page, we’ll quickly talk you through the website, to help you find what you’re looking for and let you know what we’re working on at the moment.

Resources For Students, Parents and Teachers

Our main focus at the moment is helping people to prepare for and pass an ABRSM music theory exam. But, these resources will still be useful even if you’re not taking an exam. Here are some of the more popular resources.
