MUSIC THEORY HOLIDAY CAMP
Sign up now for April 2021 programs
Music theory is essential for students to develop core understandings of the fundamentals of music. Having music theory knowledge helps students become fluent in music literacy and improves practical skills such as sight-reading.
In Grade 1 of music theory, students study topics that revise the treble clef and learn the bass clef, begin learning to write scales and brush up on their Italian terms.
In Grade 2 of music theory, students advance on to learn relationships between different key signatures, develop advanced transposition skills and learn music metrics.
By Grade 3 and 4 in music theory, students focus on developing harmony skills such as four-part harmony, cadence writing and long pieces of harmony writing. Students begin creative components such as writing melodies, setting rhythm to verse and learning about different musical forms.
Grade 5 and above are advanced levels of music theory that reimpose topics learnt in previous grade but also cover essential skills such as score reading and analysis.
Intensive music theory classes that students really enjoy!
Our lovely students are learning practical theory, memorising with musical flash cards, and having fun with ear training games around the piano.
