AP Music Theory

AP (Advanced Placement) Music Theory is a two-semester course intended to function as an introduction to music theory course taught at the college level.  The course is designed for students seeking a deeper analysis of music as a prelude to college and careers as a music performer, conductor, writer and/or educator, but it is open to any experienced musician who desires to know more about how music is put together. The goal for the AP Music Theory student is to recognize, understand and describe the basic process of music that are heard or presented in a score.  The general subjects covered in the course include Music Notation, Music Analysis, Ear Training, Sight Singing and Music Composition.  A passing score on the AP Test usually satisfies college requirements for course credit.

Eligibility: This course is open to all Sophomore, Junior and Senior music students.  It is recommended that students have prior experience at the high school level in choral and/or instrumental music classes.  Pianists who are not in the music program are also welcome. Requirements: Permission from Mrs. Bhatia is required as well as being able to read music.
