In Theory Level 5 students continue their study of rhythm, scales, key signatures, intervals, chords, and musical signs and terms. Level 5 introduces syncopated rhythms, pentatonic and blues scales, cadences in keyboard-style texture, and sonata-allegro form. This level includes two music history units on the Classical era and American blues. Levine’s music theory classes feature engaging, interactive learning designed to help young musicians develop sight-reading, rhythm, listening, and composition skills.
Please note: Students should have previously completed Theory Level 3, or else should register for a free online placement test
to determine placement in this or another theory level. After completing the test, you will receive a class recommendation and registration link from the Department Chair.
For a complete description of the skills taught in Theory Level 4, please see the Music Theory Syllabus
