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. Students compose a blues composition as a final project. 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 4, 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 5, please see the Music Theory Syllabus. The level corresponds to Level 5 of Levine’s Keyboard Skills curriculum and is appropriate for all instruments and voice.
