Music Theory Lab
The CMD’s interactive Music Theory Lab gives students the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills that will deepen their understanding of the music they are studying. Students are personally guided through written worksheets, ear training/movement activities, and composition projects. Progress is evaluated through successful completion of graded levels of the CMD’s Music Theory Curriculum. Beginning levels focus on scales, intervals, key signatures, notated rhythms, meter, and note reading. Upper levels include harmony, counterpoint, and analytical work.
