The Summer Theory Preparation Course is designed for incoming Faculty of Music students. The course will help students improve their foundational theory skills and set them up for success at Laurier.
This 6-week course will run from Monday, July 21, until Friday, Aug. 25. Each week will cover a different module:
Module 1: Pitch and Clefs
Module 2: Scales and Key Signatures
Module 3: Intervals
Module 4: Triads and Seventh Chords
Module 5: Functional harmony
Module 6: Rhythm and Meter
Each module consists of a live 2-hour online tutorial with the instructor, which will be supported by take-home assignments based on that week’s topic. The live tutorials will occur via zoom on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm-8:00pm; these will be recorded and posted for students who may not be able to attend on a given week, or for students to review while working on their assignments. Each live session will begin by answering questions from the previous week’s assignment, followed by a tutorial on that week’s topic. Students are welcome and encouraged to ask questions in real-time during these sessions. The instructor will also be available to answer questions via email through the week.
