In piano playing, I'm in level 9 out of 12 for the Greek standards(don't know about others) but I'm a bit behind concerning theory. I know what what I need for playing (shame...), nothing more. Any advice? Books or websites?
Next steps to take?
Thanks!

Looks interesting but seems to be priced for studio use. Each of the 7 vols (CD + Book) is 145 $, so the entire set will be over 1000 $ !!

Avoid ABRSM. Outdated and missing a lot.

I often use musictheory.net for teaching, it covers all the basics pretty well.
