Theory and Ear Training (Virtual)

Hear the sounds of written music before it is played (sight-singing), translate heard sounds into notation (dictation), and connect those experiences to instrumental study. Consult recommendation or schedule a placement evaluation to determine level. Note: Students in Beginning A through Advanced C, and AP Music Theory Prep, will need a small keyboard at home unless they already have a piano. For purchase options, please email rsearles@jccotp.org.

In BEGINNING A*, students learn basic notation on the treble clef, playing/singing and hearing intervals, basic rhythms and time signatures, and some improvisation and composition.

In BEGINNING B*, students solidify their knowledge of Beginning A concepts.

In BEGINNING C*, students learn to hear, play and distinguish among four different types of triads and their inversions, more advanced rhythms such as 16th notes and triplets, and the major scales and key signatures. They also learn to write and read in both treble and bass clef and write small compositions.

In BEGINNING D*, students solidify their knowledge of Beginning C concepts

In INTERMEDIATE A*, students learn to put triads together into cycles, more advanced rhythm (3 against 2), odd meters, more advanced repertoire, basic 4-part voice leading, 7th chords and inversions, and basic composition.

In INTERMEDIATE B*, students solidify their knowledge of Intermediate A concepts.

In INTERMEDIATE C*, students learn the Dorian modal system and modal harmony. They improvise and become fluent in writing, playing and hearing these progressions and scales. They write small compositions and analyze modes in orchestral pieces.

In ADVANCED A, students begin to synthesize prior knowledge

and learn how to use and resolve chords in functional harmony. They connect the chord cycles they learned earlier to harmonic progressions and discover the effect of key signatures on cycles. They learn to play harmonies within a key and handle non-harmonic tones in composition and analysis.

In ADVANCED B, students analyze pieces written during the Common Practice Period and learn to identify secondary dominant chords, modulations, and form.

In ADVANCED C, students learn augmented 6 chords, and more advanced chromaticism and analysis.
