Music Theory

At CCM Prep, we believe that music theory — and not instrumental or vocal studies alone — is essential for students to develop into well-rounded musicians. While music theory basics are part of the curricula in some of our courses, a separate program of theory, ear training and composition study:

  • Enhances and increases musical understanding
  • Complements skills learned in instrumental and vocal lessons
  • Helps students can learn new music more quickly as they begin to recognize and anticipate its different elements.
  • Prepares students for collegiate study
  • Is essential to composing and arranging in classical, jazz and many pop genres
