Theory of Music and Musicianship

Syllabus News 2019

New Set Works from 2020
New Set Works for Theory of Music Grades 5 and 6, Musicianship Grades 5 and 6, and the Licentiate Diploma in Musicology will be introduced from early 2020. The current Set Works will not be examinable once the new works have been introduced. More information on the exact dates of the changeover will be provided during 2019.

Theory of Music
As part of the changeover, Set Works questions will be added to Theory of Music Grade 5, which has not previously had these questions. Currently students only encounter Set Works analysis in Theory of Music Grade 6, and it is believed that introducing this earlier will assist candidates in developing their analysis skills and will better align Theory of Music with Musicianship. For 2020 the Grade 6 Set Works will change and in Theory of Music Licentiate Diploma in Musicology there will be changes to both Group 1 and Group 2 of the Set Works. The Set Works in Theory of Music Associate Diploma in Musicology will not change. The list of new works to be introduced in 2020 can be found in the 2019 Theory of Music syllabus.

New Set Works will be introduced for Grade 5 and Grade 6 in 2020. The new works are listed in the 2019 Musicianship syllabus.
