From the CTY Course Catalog (1997):
Music Theory helps students further their understanding of music symbols and also provides them with opportunities to explore the relationships of these symbols within the context of a musical score. A thorough understanding of the major/minor scale system is stressed, including intervallic relationships and triadic and seventh-chord harmonies. A study of rhythm and meter is also covered. All students should gain a better understanding of the basics of music theory, a broadening of musical vocabulary, and a chance to apply concepts learned in class in their own compositions. The course includes written, oral, and aural exercises and provides students with a solid foundation for further study towards the Advanced Placement Examination in Music Theory.
Music Theory at CAR has been instructed by Dan Shaw and TA'd by Taylor Johnson for the past three years (as of CAR.1.08).
