This next course continues the development of written skills in preparation for the Royal American Conservatory Intermediate Level Exam. Topics include cadence types, chromatic scales, non-primary triads, whole-tone and pentatonic scales, diminished and augmented intervals, asymmetrical meters, and enhanced performance terminology.
Columbus Music and Art Academy offers courses in Music Theory, Harmony and Ear Training, and Sight Singing. Most students choose to participate in the Royal Conservatory Certificate Program by taking the theory exam following the class. Our Music Theory students have consistently performed exceptionally well on these exams. On average, we do 20% better than the national average as given by the Royal Conservatory website.

Although we do not offer an AP prep class, our students consistently receive 4s and 5s on this exam.
