Discover and explore music in an engaging collaborative setting.

The study of music theory provides the foundation for a deep understanding of music as a language, creating a knowledgeable and discerning audience of music lovers who attend concerts, create, listen, play, and study music over a lifetime.

At Levine, youth music theory is taught with seven levels of core classes, advanced classes on special-topics (Honors Theory), and AP Music Theory. In-person and online youth theory classes are open to students ages 8-18. Placement in classes beyond Level 1 will be determined by the completion of the theory placement test.

Online classes for adults are available in three levels: Basics, Intermediate, and Advanced. Potential students may self-select the class based on the description or take the placement test.
