Freshman Theory

Freshman theory will be divided into two sections: a faster-paced section and a slower-paced section. At your orientation, you will be asked which section you prefer. There WILL be a placement test on the first class day to be sure that you are ready to join Music Theory 1011 instead of Music Fundamentals.

In order to avoid being placed in Music Fundamentals, we suggest becoming fluent in both treble and bass clefs, as well as learning the major key signatures. You may visit:

It is suggested that you drill on treble or bass clef, whichever you are least familiar with. Also, go through the lessons and exercises on major key signatures.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Elizabeth Goode at
