Music Theory focuses on reading, composing, and analyzing music using musical notation. Our Music Theory courses were developed according to the principles found on the Music Theory section of the College Board AP Central website (http://apcentral.collegeboard.com). These courses give students an opportunity to learn composition techniques, form, and analysis of major works from major musical periods and genres.
The ultimate goal of the Music Theory courses is to develop each student's ability to recognize, understand, and describe the basic materials and processes of music that are heard or presented in a score. The achievement of this goal may be best promoted by integrated approaches to the student's development of aural, intellectual, notation, compositional, and analytical skills, all of which are taught in the courses.
Music Theory (18 weeks, .5 credits) this course will cover elements such as scale patterns, rhythmic devices, tonality, basic part-writing, melodic and harmonic dictation, chord analysis, and simple forms. It may serve as enrichment for the School of Rock 1 course.
AP Music Theory (36 weeks, 1.0 credit, AP weighted) This is the highest level music theory offering. This class is designed to allow for creativity and composition of large choral and instrumental works. Students in this class will learn compositional techniques, form, and analysis of major works from all major Western musical periods and genres. Students are required to become proficient on Sibelius notation software. Advancement of aural skills and theoretical knowledge is also a requirement. This class is designed to prepare students for the AP exam with the goal of testing out of college freshman Music Theory courses.
