Learn Music Terms

Music Terms cover

Learning music terms and symbols is essential to understanding your pieces better so that you can play them according to what the composer had intended. It is also part of the syllabus for Music Theory for ABRSM and Trinity grades 1-8.

In this page I’ve included lists of music terms and quizzes according to ABRSM syllabus for grades 1 to 8. For the music term quizzes, from grade 2 to 4, I’ve included 2 quizzes for each grade, one is for new terms not learnt in the previous grade and the other one for all the terms that will be tested in the exam for that grade. From grade 5 onwards, as there are too many terms, I only included the new terms.

I hope that this will be helpful to all who are learning music terms and symbols.
