Introduction to Music Theory or the instructor’s permission


Advanced Placement

In this course, students will learn to recognize, understand and describe the basic materials and processes of music that are heard or presented in a score. We address fundamental aural, analytical and compositional skills using listening and written exercises. Building on this foundation, we include more creative tasks: harmonizing a melody, composing a musical bass line to provide a two-voice counterpoint, and realizing figured-bass notation. On successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to sit the AP Music Theory exam.
