This course introduces students to musicianship, theory, musical materials and theoretical procedures. The course is designed to provide students with the major components common to a first-year course in a college music program. The course integrates aspects of melody, harmony, texture, rhythm, musical analysis, elementary composition, history, and style. Musicianship skills, such as dictation and other listening skills, sight-singing, and keyboard harmony, are an important part of the course. All students prepare for the AP® Music Theory Exam administered by the College Board at the end of the year. Either Music Theory I or Music Theory II and permission from the instructor are prerequisites for this course. (Full year, 1 credit)
