Students will study music theory and apply these principles to composing their own compositions. An understanding of music theory gives the musician the foundational tools and skills needed to succeed in the performance of the instrument of their choice, as well as vocals. This course is designed to introduce theory in a fun and informative way to help each student understand each new concept thoroughly. A short review of theory fundamentals will be followed by more in depth theory principles. Ear Training is also included in the course. Keyboard recommended for this class.
Part II of the course will continue in the study of music theory and will include triads, scales, major and minor, primary and secondary triads, augmented and diminished chords, and how these will work together to make a beautiful composition. More complex compositions will be written during part II of this course.

This SAT/ACT class prepares students to perform well on both the SAT and ACT college entrance exams. We believe, as do many educators, that students should take both tests. Most colleges will accept either and students will sometimes score higher on one exam than the other. We use books by different publishers because we feel that they do the best job of preparing students for each test, respectively. This class covers all subject matter on these two exams (reading, math, english and science) as well as essay-writing and test-taking strategies.
