Laying the groundwork for a lifetime love of music, students in this course will discover the basics of music and even try their hand at composition. As a part of a complete learning management system, music theory is a self-directed elective infused with technology-based lessons, tools, and exercises to enrich learning for students and streamline instruction and administrative tasks for teachers.
