AP Music Theory

The Cardinal Gibbons AP Music Theory class is designed to allow for creativity and composition of large choral and instrumental works. Students in this class will learn techniques in composition, form, and analysis of major works from all major Western musical periods and genres. Students will also become proficient on music notation software, aural skills and theoretical knowledge. This class is designed to prepare students for the AP exam with the goal of testing out of college freshman Music Theory courses.

All of our courses offered for Choral and Instrumental Music at Cardinal Gibbons help prepare our students for enrollment in the AP Music Theory class. We also encourage students who take private piano or voice lessons to inquire about enrolling, along with reading our Course Description.

Please contact Mark Cashin to become a part of our AP Music Theory class!
