  • Ding ding

  • I'm wearing my genius shirt today,

  • because today is a

  • ultimate high IQ episode.

  • We will be taking the...

  • ...Theory Paper.

  • Grade 5!

  • For those of you that maybe

  • have not taken the exams before,

  • as a student growing up, you take different

  • - exams, for... - Yeah.

  • ...playing an instrument.

  • But at a certain point,

  • - you need to start taking theory exams as well, right? - Yes.

  • You have to start theory exams

  • in order to be able to take

  • - higher level grade exams for your instrument. - Yeah. Yeah.

  • But today, we have

  • ABRSM, which is kinda like,

  • internationally one of the more well-known ones.

  • We're doing Grade 5, which is pretty up there.

  • It's been like, ten years?

  • Fifteen years!

  • Bro, I think I forgot everything.

  • - Yeah. - Alright, so this is meant to be a

  • 2-hour paper, with only 7 questions.

  • As very busy musicians,

  • we have to practice 40 hOuRs a dAy.

  • So, I think we should try and do this in

  • 40 minutes?

  • 30 minutes.

  • 20 minutes!

  • 15 minutes!

  • Nah, 30 minutes.

  • Then we'll mark our score

  • - with the answer sheet afterwards. - Yeah.

  • Here we go. So I'm gonna go to a different room.

  • I'm gonna go get a pen.

  • Brett: Yeah.

  • Just start.

  • Start!

  • Oh, my god.

  • Alright.

  • Oh, f***.

  • Easy.

  • Well, C means cut common, which means 4/4.

  • C must be 4.

  • Oh, sh**.

  • Oh, this is tricky!

  • Cool. Easy.

  • Actually, I can't get too cocky.

  • I got too cocky for the Harvard one.

  • Let's check and count the quavers!

  • Okay, here we go.

  • Oh, my god, that took way too long!

  • Yeah, it's fine.

  • 'Cause it's a sequence.

  • Sequence! You know what that is?

  • It's when the same pat

  • No, I don't have time.

  • (both) Next one.

  • Alright, here's a tip. When you're taking tests, and it says,

  • "Look at the extract and answer the following questions below,"

  • B flat major, I remember this.

  • B, C, D, E, F.

  • I'm gonna write this out.

  • Just in case.

  • It's a E flat major chord, in the root position.

  • Which is...

  • IV chord.

  • So this one is...

  • G, D, and G.

  • G and D? Which one is that?

  • What the hell??

  • C minor chord, but inverted.

  • So that's a II, but it's a...

  • ...3rd, so b.

  • G.

  • That's a 5th.

  • So II, 5th.

  • ♪ B flat major chord, that's a tonic

  • But... ♪

  • First inversion

  • Na na la

  • Ding ding!

  • Next.

  • What??

  • B, C, and G?

  • Are you serious?

  • Chord C. F, G, A...

  • And B flat.

  • This must be a 5th.

  • Oh, dude!

  • I don't know the official names.

  • Oh, bar 1. That's a...

  • ...turn.

  • Appoggiatura!

  • Acciaccatura or something is when there's a ...

  • ...cross between it, a grace note.

  • But appoggiatura is when there's no little slice

  • through the small note.

  • Oh, sh**! I mean...

  • That's a appoggiatura grace note.

  • And then that thing...

  • ...is a mordent.

  • Or turn, I think.

  • It's a mediant.

  • Median, or mediant?

  • That's a mediant.

  • Ah, whatever.

  • We all get the point.

  • Easy!

  • Well, I don't know, maybe I got it wrong.

  • Brett!

  • What?

  • What question are you up to?

  • I'm up to question 2, 1.

  • I'm on 2b!

  • Oh, sh**!

  • Better speed up!

  • *recorder noises*

  • Oh, no! Distraction!

  • A, B, C. That's a 6th.

  • That's an aug 7th.

  • A to C sharp's a major 10th.

  • Fa sol la ti

  • G, A, B.

  • B flat.

  • ♪ F sharp

  • Too easy. Oh, I can't tell him. He'll know.

  • F sharp. It should be F sharp.

  • Question 3!

  • D, it must be an E.

  • It's this one. Bar 2.

  • So that's an E.

  • Well, it's obviously the accidental.

  • Bar 3. That's A sharp.

  • It's in bar 3, it's the A sharp.

  • That's bar 7.

  • D sharp.

  • Wha?? What's an enharmonic again? D sharp?

  • I'm gonna guess it's that one. Yeah, it's 7.

  • Okay, bar 7.

  • Maybe it's 7. Yeah yeah yEAH.

  • Bro, what's tenor clef?

  • Dude, what does the tenor clef look like again?

  • Bro, what is the first right-hand piano chord?

  • I'm so confused, because it's a split chord.

  • Dude, I forgot!

  • No!!

  • I think I'm [gonna] mess this one up,

  • 'cause I don't know tenor clef anyway.

  • Oh, sh...

  • Do they want the A?

  • I'll write the A in just as well,

  • just in case, because two notes is not really a chord.

  • Okay. This a massive guess, but I'm gonna keep going.

  • That's compound.

  • "Duple, triple." Oof!

  • ...double b a s s .

  • T h e d o u b l e b a s s .

  • I'll do woodwinds.

  • What's the highest instrument? Piccolo.

  • So high.

  • Easy! Violin gang.

  • Too easy!

  • Excuse me?!

  • I'm a violinist!

  • "Gradually getting quicker."

  • iF yoU cAn gRadUaLLy gEt sLoWeR,

  • yOu caN gRaDuaLLy geT qUicKeR.

  • It means "at medium speed."

  • "Grazioso" means "graceful," for sure.

  • "Grazioso" means "graceful."

  • Because it's... The word looks the same.

  • No?

  • What the hell? "The largest melodic interval"??

  • No??

  • What a lie!

  • S a c r i l e g i o u s .

  • G sharp, A, B, C sharp. Yeah.

  • D sharp, yes.

  • And E.

  • That's true.

  • B.

  • Oh f***. How many flats does D flat major have?

  • Five flats.

  • So difficult. So many flats.

  • I'm on question 4, what's the time?

  • 12 minutes.

  • Oh! We're ahead of time. Good, good.

  • What has 4 sharps?

  • C sharp harmonic minor.

  • I'm gonna write all the chords out.

  • F sharp, C sharp, G sharp, D sharp.

  • One.

  • Two, three, four five six seven... eight.

  • There you go. C sharp, C sharp.

  • Ooh, double sharp!

  • Is that right?

  • No, it's not double sharp.

  • What am I doing, man. Just, B sharp.

  • Oh, I hate transposing.

  • Oh, sh**.

  • La, la

  • No, that's not right.

  • La

  • Dude, I forgot!

  • Can I check?

  • I'm gonna check.

  • La, la... E flat

  • Nah, I didn't check. I'm not gonna check.

  • It was actually not that hard, I think I...

  • Made it harder in my head than it was.

  • Dude, I can actually finish this in 30 minutes!

  • E a s y .

  • Imagine I get all of them wrong.

  • E m b a r r a s s i n g .

  • Sad life, I think I got this...

  • Oh! My pen snapped.

  • I think I failed that one.

  • Dominant

  • That's a dominant.

  • Submediant.

  • Submedian? Submediant?

  • Ahh, I forget.

  • Submediant.

  • Okay.

  • So it would be 9/16.

  • Oh, HALF the value!

  • What the f***?

  • Quavers become semiquavers.

  • Semiquaver to demisemiquaver.

  • Demisemiquaver. Or, "32nd note."

  • In normal speak.

  • What's the new time signature? 9/8.

  • Well that's not right.

  • Oh, I messed it up.

  • I'm just gonna do 9/12.

  • One, two, three, four, five six seven eight...

  • Yeah, 9/12.

  • I can't.

  • That's a G.

  • It needs to sound the same as the G here.

  • Middle C is the middle line for alto clef, so that's a G.

  • Cool.

  • Ha, I told you.

  • Oh, I don't know!

  • All right. This is guessing time.

  • I'm gonna guess vigour.

  • Alright, last question!

  • Oh, mate!

  • I got 9 minutes left. It's only been 21 minutes.

  • Ooh.

  • What's langsam?

  • Langsam means lively? No, slow.

  • I finished!

  • Wait, what does "Ausdruck" mean?

  • I don't know! You know more German than me!

  • Ja, ich spreche kein Deutsch.

  • "With love."
