I developed my love of music theory whilst studying towards my music GCSE and later my music A-Level. This inspired me to teach myself music theory right through to Grade 8 and along the way receiving the Hedy-King Robinson prize, which recognizes high standards in the study of music theory.
Many music students see music theory as a chore and don't enjoy it because they are not introduced to it straightaway, and are usually faced with it when wanting to progress in their practical grades. I firmly believe that it is crucial to learn both theory and practical side by side as they each enhance the other's understanding of music. I have a real desire to pass on my love of music theory and want to make it an area of music that is enjoyable and knowledgeable rather than just a compulsory step in the practical music process.
