The Candidate material is set out under four sub-headings (see the right hand sidebar). The headings are:
Major Modules
Minor Modules
The Modules are divided into MAJOR and MINOR
It is envisaged that all Candidates will cover all the material in the prescribed course. The division of the Modules into ‘MAJOR’ and ‘Minor’ is not intended to signify ’important’ and ’less important’, but should be seen more in terms of music—with its major and minor keys—the minor introducing the “darker” [deeper shade] as one moves from the major to the more sombre of the minor. The time allocation for this approach and the depth will depend on considerations such as ability/interest/time available etc. for the individual in question and will be, in the final analysis, at the discretion of the Formator.
