Mozart School of Music Vancouver provides theory classes that serve as preparation for Royal Conservatory of Music or Conservatory Canada examinations. The theory classes are organized in three groups: Musicianship (levels Prep through 4), Intermediate Theory (levels 5 through 8), and Advanced Theory (level 9 through ARCT Harmony and History).
The Musicianship classes will use all elementary theory books and serve the purpose of accelerating the learning of beginning students, especially in note reading and ear training. These classes are designed to go hand-in-hand with private instrument lessons and it is a requirement that students take both a private lesson and a theory class together.
Now available for every level of the Royal Conservatory Certificate Program, from elementary to advanced as of August 2016, the new Celebrate Theory program will build music literacy from the very first lesson and deepen students’ enjoyment and understanding of the music they hear and play. By integrating music theory with practical study, students develop well-rounded musicianship skills in an interactive and engaging way.
