This syllabus gives the requirements for Theory of Music grade exams from 2009 onwards. 

The eight grade exams provide a comprehensive and carefully incremented approach to the technical language of music, supported by approachable workbooks.

Although there are no theory prerequisites for taking any Trinity College London practical graded exams, theoretical musical knowledge works to enhance and support practical studies.
