Course Description

Conservatory Music Theory (High School and advanced musicians): Based on techniques taught at top American conservatories and universities, this premier-level course acquaints the advanced student with the aural and theoretical skills expected of a professional musician. Weekly lessons drill aural competencies including sight-singing, dictation, and identification of intervals and chords; the theoretical topics span from a review of scales and tonality, and progress to harmony, counterpoint, voice-leading, chromaticism, phrase structure, form, and advanced analytical technologies where relevant. Brief weekly assignments are meant to monitor and strengthen skills acquisition. Students preparing for the AP exam or Royal Conservatory certifications in music theory will find this course an invaluable aid. Prerequisite: Written assessment for placement in this advanced class. 


All registrations, including minors, must be completed using the student's name and date of birth. Parents/guardians should be listed as Emergency Contact.
