Music Theory 1 is a continuing of Introduction to Music Theory. will provide students with the skills and knowledge required to progress through future courses in Music. This course will cover basic aspects of theory that will be helpful to any student currently studying or interested in studying a musical instrument.

This class is foundational to truly understanding music and includes the practices and possibilities of music. There are 3 essential ingredients that we will cover:

  1. Musical notation: key signatures, time signatures, and rhythmic notation
  2. Understanding Music from Antiquity to the Present Time -methods and concepts composers have used in composing music.
  3. Contemplating Music – tuning and tonal systems, scales, consonance and dissonance, and rhythmic relationship

Music is one of the Universal Languages. Giving your student an opportunity to explore Music  equips them to communicate well in our developing global economy and world.

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. ~ Plato

This class I will cover the basics in:

  • Notation
  • Time signatures
  • Scales
  • Vocabulary
  • Intervals
  • Aural skills

Additionally, students will be encouraged to relate course content to their personal music experiences.

A primary goal of this goal is to grow the student’s cumulative understanding of music theory. This will be accomplished through weekly lesson exercises, aural exercises, unit tests, and worksheets specifically designed to develop cumulative knowledge of music theory. Music Theory will build and enhance your student’s overall understanding of music, allowing them to sing and play with more confidence and acumen!

Combine this with Introduction to Music Theory for a robust year of learning the about the life empowering language of Music!

The class will be taught and graded by your True North Homeschool Academy teacher. The coursework your child will complete in this high school level course is equal to one half-credit hour which may be awarded by your homeschool upon completion of the course.
