Levine’s online music theory classes use an innovative online classroom that provides easy access to course materials and communication between students and instructors. Integrated instructional software helps students build musical fluency in an interactive environment. Students will hone their skills using the following software:

Musition (Basic Theory Skills)
Auralia (Ear Training Skills)
Noteflight (Music Notation)
Practice First (Sight Reading and Sight Singing)

Each unit includes an online lesson, an assignment, and a short quiz. Students can log on any day/time of the week to complete this work. Students will receive direct feedback and guidance from the instructor on their work. Students also have the opportunity to video chat with the instructor during office hours.

We understand that many adults have busy schedules and may not be able to complete work according to a fixed schedule – students will have access to the online classroom for 6-months following the date of registration.
