I enjoyed having the lessons in my own home using Skype without the need to travel, plus the webinars on the website were particularly useful when revising. I achieved 88% which was a good merit.

Gaining a merit in my grade 6 ABRSM theory exam was made easier with the help of MTO.  I enjoyed linking up to a live lesson from the UK and as I lead a busy life it helped that the lessons where delivered via the internet so obviously no travelling required.  The lessons where structured and the website resources gave me that extra help.  The online self marking tests where an asset.  Thanks MTO for all your help. I would recommend your service to anyone who is serious about studying music theory.
