Music Theory

AP 551.103 | Online | TBA


This online course is designed to maximize the learner experience, providing relevant AP content and pedagogy through meaningful engagement – all focused on best practices for preparing your AP students for success. Specifically, participants will examine in detail the AP Music Theory Course and Examination Description (CED) and relevant materials to develop strategies to improve classroom instruction and delivery. These resources will include AP Classroom unit guides, personal progress checks, and the AP question bank. Participants will analyze selected problem types typical of first-year college music theory, infer their construction and solutions, learn to create comparable questions for their own classroom use, and learn ways to evaluate student responses to these problems. Ultimately, participants will be able to develop or refine their own AP Music Theory course, complete the digital activation process, and meet the new deadline for exam enrollment.
