Music Theory

Students can enroll in three different levels of music theory class designed to challenge and grow their knowledge no matter what their prior experience is. Please contact the TYSA office to learn more about classes and enrollment.

Purpose: Music exists in time and is perceived through sound. These courses improve and heighten awareness of these sounds through a careful study of the elements of music. The Theory 0.5 class, designed for our TSS and TYVP students, will incorporate lots of practice and games in order to learn the language of music. Theory 1 and 2 will progressively teach students to understand how music is put together from a theoretical viewpoint. Music theory classes are open to TYSA students, parents, and anyone in the community who wishes to explore music theory!

Theory 0.5 – 11:30 – 12:00
Theory 1 – 12:30 – 1:30
Theory 2 – 1:45 – 2:45
