Is this something your dc wants to do? Guess thats the starting point. Lots good advice if Dc is wanting to do it.
Fair question. DD mentioned in passing during the holidays that a couple of the girls are "doing Grade 5 theory" and some in her music class have already done grades 7 or 8 practical exams, so have either done the theory exam or have a comparable level of knowledge of the rudiments. That's what made me think about it. They're set for music, so having a proper grasp of theory might be as mundane as needing to know your tables.
No rush, no strong views either way, just giving it some thought. Years ago, I studied music to a fairly high level, including harmony and counterpoint, but I never did formal theory exams in isolation, hence my curiosity.
