In Theory Level 2, students continue their study of rhythm, reading notes on the staff, scales, key signatures, intervals, chords, and musical signs and terms. Level 2 introduces basic musical forms and harmony.
Students apply these skills to a short composition project at the end of the class. Levine's music theory classes feature engaging, interactive learning designed to help young musicians develop sight-reading, rhythm, listening, and composition skills. This class corresponds to Level 2 of Levine's keyboard-skills curriculum. However, the music theory skills taught in this class have broad application to students who play any instrument. Please consult the Music Theory Syllabus for a complete description of the skills taught in Theory Level 2. This online class includes live sessions over Zoom with an instructor. Students have access to an innovative online classroom with an integrated music theory software suite. Lessons and assignments are completed with prerecorded videos and software. In the Zoom sessions, students review work, ask questions of the instructor, and collaborate with peers. If a student needs to miss a scheduled session, they may still complete the lesson and assignment using the prerecorded video and integrated software. Students should have previously completed Theory Level 1 or have equivalent music theory skills. New students may register for an online placement test to determine placement in this or a higher theory level. After completing the test, you will receive a class recommendation and registration link from the Department Chair.
