AP® Music Theory will introduce advanced concepts of music theory to students. The aim of this course is to improve students’ performance, aural, analytical, and composition skills. AP® Music Theory is an intensive, fast paced course that touches on aspects of melody, harmony, texture, form, musical analysis, and composition. This course also includes an aural section of sight-singing, melodic and harmonic dictation, and listening examples. Each student will be required to compose and perform original compositions, both as an individual and in a group setting. All students enrolled in this course will be prepared to take the Advanced Placement exam in the spring. Yet AP® Music Theory is not just about the exam; the student will experience a growth in her performance skills and all around musicianship. This is a crucial course for anyone looking to pursue music professionally or for anyone who has a passion in music and wants to explore her interest.
