Music is indeed a language. Theory, then, is the study of the musical language itself, from the ABC’s to the works of the masters. I firmly believe that you cannot study music without learning it, which is why each student at Ivoryman is taught theory to an extent.
Get a big head start in musical study- Theory is used as a “weeding” class for university-level musicians; it’s detrimental to your success not just to do well on the exams, but to firmly grasp the content of the subject. If you’re considering majoring in music or planning to take the AP Music Theory Exam, receiving tutoring will make a huge difference in your performance.
Improve every aspect of your musicianship- Sight-Reading, Performing, Composing, Arranging–no matter what you’re interests and goals are as a musician, mastering the concepts of theory is essential to achieving them.
