AP Music Theory (Online Course)—Part 1


 Product Description

This class will help students prepare to take the AP Music Theory test. The goal of AP Music Theory is to develop each student’s ability to recognize, understand, and describe the basic materials and processes of music that are heard and presented in a score. The course focuses on the development of five fundamental skills:

  1. Aural skills (recognizing intervals, scales, modes, rhythms, meters and other musical elements)
  2. Sight-singing skills (reading music at first sight through the use of tonic sol-fa singing)
  3. Written skills (learning and applying principles harmony, voice leading from the common practice period)
  4. Compositional skills (creating original music that follows compositional practices of the common practice period)
  5. Analytical skills (examining written music to discover the compositional elements that make it what it is)

Students who take this course should already have a basic understanding of music notation and should be able to sing or play a musical instrument. Since sight singing is part of the AP Music Theory exam, students will be required to sing. AP Music Theory is a college-level course. Consequently, the quality and quantity of work required will be greater than an average high school class.

Upon payment of course tuition here, you will be able to download a welcome page containing a course registration link.
