AP Music Theory

Advanced Placement (AP) Music Theory is designed to provide students with a learning experience equivalent to that of an introductory college course in music theory. The course should develop a student’s ability to recognize, understand, describe, and analyze the basic materials and processes of music that are heard or presented in a score. The course emphasizes integrated approaches to the student’s development of aural, sight-singing, written, compositional, and analytical skills through listening, performance, written, creative, and analytical exercises.
