All Music Theory students will be required to order a Celebrate Theory book. (Level will be specified after registration). Celebrate Theory books can be used for multiple sessions of Music Theory.
Students will be grouped by level after completing the registration form above.
Our Theory 1 class will introduce these topics for the first time and students in the class are not expected to have previous theory instruction except for a basic instruction to the music staff. If your child has not started identifying notes on the staff in their music reading book (I Can Read Music), please check with your lesson teacher before signing up for a theory class.
