Pre-AP Music Theory
Welcome! You have decided to further your knowledge of music by taking Pre-AP Music Theory. This course is designed to prepare students in the many aspects of music needed to major or minor in a music related field in college.
We will be using a text, the internet and other musical resources to further understand the relationships between written music (theory - notes, scales, keys, chords, etc.), sight-singing (yes, you will need to sing in front of your peers during the class on a regular basis) and ear-training (listening).
Please come to each class prepared! You should have the text (covered using a brown paper bag), your chromebook, a pencil, a good eraser, manuscript paper (staff paper), a three-ringed binder, and earphones (ear buds are ok too!).
We are currently learning about chapter 1 of our text book (Tonal Harmony by Kostka and Payne).You may use www.musictheory.net as a resource/practice site.
I'm looking forward to a great (and productive) year!
