AP Music Theory
The AP Music Theory class is designed to prepare students in the areas of music theory, analysis and ear training. The course is ideal for the serious music student who plans to further their musical studies at the postsecondary level or perhaps pursue a career in music, but it is open to any experienced musician who desires to know more about how music is put together. It is the goal for the AP Music Theory student to recognize, understand and describe the basic processes of music that are heard or presented in a score. It is assumed that the student entering in this course has some previous musical training and can perform at an intermediate or advanced level, and is fluent in reading musical notation. At the end of the course, students will be prepared to sit for the advanced Placement Music Theory exam in May.
