Music Theory & Sight-Reading Classes

IMG_0615Music teachers have a lot to teach their students in just a short time, once a week.  A lesson is really best spent working on technique, musicality, and performance, but particularly with young students, teachers often find themselves spending a large portion of their lessons teaching basic musicianship, such as note-reading and rhythms. Theory Class I gives the young students the chance to learn all the musicianship skills they need in an efficient way, so that they can make the most of their time with their individual instructors, as well as dramatically increase the rate at which they sight-read, and therefore learn new music.

For more advanced students who are preparing for All-State or other youth orchestra auditions, the sight-reading has been the most challenging part to achieve their goal. A lack of comprehensive training in music theory (i.e. counting and reading) is the reason that students struggle in this field. Theory Class II teaches these students not only the music theory knowledge but also the skills on improving their sight-reading. With All-State and other youth orchestra auditions coming up in the Fall of 2015 and Spring of 2016, the faculty at WPMA strongly recommends that the students use these theory classes to improve their performance in any future auditions.
