Music Theory/Literature Curriculum
The Youth Conservatory for Music presents a balanced curriculum of performance training, theoretical study, ear training, and music literature. This thorough approach to musical development gives students a firm grounding in the materials and techniques they will need as mature artists, as well as a solid introduction to the Western classical music.
YCM offers several different levels of music theory/literature classes without an additional fee for students who are taking applied lessons (students may be responsible for purchasing their own textbook). All classes are scheduled on Saturdays and students are encouraged to take one of the classes based on their individual ability and background in music theory. All classes are one-year long and start in the fall semester and continue through the spring semester.
