Music Theory Links

 Ricci Adams' Music Theory

This is a really nice website covering many aspects of music theory, including lessons and quizzes.  For those taking exams you may find this a very useful resource as a way to further prepare. 


Another comprehensive Music Theory site.  

My Music Theory

Free online music theory lessons and exercises following the ABRSM syllabus for grades one through six.


Dolmetsch music theory is the most in-depth music theory website I have seen. I don’t recommend jumping straight into Dolmetsch if you are studying up to grade 5 music theory, because you will risk getting out of your depth pretty quickly.   Interactive major and minor scales, circle of fifths and so much more.

Interactive Circle of fifths  Allows students to see keys with their chord and scale families in action.
