Is your student taking private lessons and looking to go farther with their music instruction? Our Music Theory program is designed to give students a more structured foundation in written and aural theory subjects using the Theory Time curriculum. Classes take place one Saturday a month in a small-group setting. Each of our students has the opportunity to take the National Music Festival Theory Test, a great accomplishment for prospective music majors.
- Ages 5 and up
- All skill levels welcome
Class sections happen on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Classes take place monthly in a small group setting. An initial consultation will happen with one of our Instructors to determine placement.
