AP® MUSIC THEORY
AP® Music Theory introduces 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 composes and perform original compositions, both as an individual and in a group setting. All students enrolled in this course take the Advanced Placement exam in the spring. Yet AP® Music Theory is not just about the exam; students experience growth in their performance skills and all around musicianship. This is a crucial course for anyone looking to pursue music professionally or for anyone who wants to pursue their passion in music.
Prerequisite: Ability to read at least one clef of music and proficiency in an instrument or voice
