AP Music Theory

Credit: 0.5 per semester Year Course
Prerequisite: None
Special Info: None

This class is designed as a college-level 1 st term music theory course for students with limited or no previous training in music theory. Prior experience with music (choir, band, piano, orchestra or guitar) is expected in some capacity, although this class is suitable for all highly motivated college-bound junior and senior students with a particular interest in music. This course will tremendously grow your knowledge in the areas of reading and analyzing notated music, aural training (ear training), and musical composition. Particular emphasis will be placed upon developing listening skills, sight singing ability and knowledge of rhythm, melody, and musical form. For students planning to major, or minor in music, this course will serve as an excellent introduction to the music theory component at your chosen college or university.
