Music Theory I
Music Theory is an advanced, college prep course designed to develop a student’s ability to recognize, understand, and describe the basic materials and processes of music that are heard or presented in a score. These abilities will be developed through various listening, performance, written, creative, and analytical exercises. Although the course focuses on music from the Common Practice Period (1600-1900), materials and processes found in other styles and genres are also studied. The course also covers an overview of Western music history in a sequential presentation, aligning with our application of theory work.
