About This Activity

Description

(Ages 13 - 18)

AP Music Theory is structured as a concentrated 30-week course that prepares students for the AP Music Theory Exam after one school year. Weekly class meetings are divided into interactive Written Skills (60 minutes) and Aural Skills (30 minutes) sessions.

This course serves as an introduction to college-level music fundamentals, musicianship (sight singing, listening, dictation, and transcription), harmony, musical analysis, and composition. AP Music Theory prepares students with a broad base of knowledge and skills that are essential for performance and composition in many musical genres, including classical, jazz, and popular music.

Students are provided with an online textbook, as well as enhanced access to Levine's Music First online module and Harmonia music theory software. Sight singing, ear training, analysis, and part-writing homework is submitted electronically.

This course has been authorized by the College Board. Students who complete the course can earn college credit, based on AP Exam performance. All AP Exam scores appear on an "AP Transcript," which is submitted to colleges separately from the student's high school transcript. Students who wish to earn high school credit in addition may request independent study credit with the approval of their high school counselor.

Please note: Students must have access to a laptop or desktop computer (Mac or PC) with a microphone. Students must have the ability to read and write standard musical notation. Basic performance skills in voice or on an instrument are also strongly recommended. The course is recommended for high-school aged musicians, but younger students who demonstrate extraordinary accomplishments in music theory may register with the instructor's permission.

Students must take an AP placement exam prior to registering for the class. Students are provided with enhanced access to Levine's MusicFirst online module. There is an additional $100 access fee to cover this cost.
