Music Theory Level 6

Course for 6th grade Music Theory. You can purchase course access as a single student or a teacher. Covers TMTA Level 6 requirements

Course Summary

This course covers the basics of music theory for 6th grade (or equivalent) students. This level is subdivided into 15 small video lessons, each covering one concept.  This allows students to watch and re-watch a small section as needed.  In this level, we will learn to identify two notes as either half steps, whole steps, whole + half steps, or enharmonic notes.  We will also learn and review all of our major key signatures, and construct the Major circle of 5ths.  Students will learn how to write the Major key signatures, as well as place accidentals on a series of notes to create a major scale.  We will also work on identifying intervals up to an octave, and learn the difference between major and minor thirds. For rhythm, we will cover eight notes and sixteenth notes, and work with both simple and compound time signatures.  Students will learn new vocabulary terms, and also work on writing the primary triads in the major keys, as well as identifying the primary triads in a musical example.  For ear training, students will work on identifying major or minor chords, intervals of a 2nd, 5th, or 7th, and practice rhythmic and melodic dictation.  Bonus - learn how to construct the minor circle of 5ths. Taught by Dr. Kathy Rabago.

Teachers:  this theory course covers all the material needed for the TMTA state theory test for 6th grade.

Have you ever been excited about something where it ends up taking over your dreams? This happens to me all the time, but I didn’t expect it to happen with this… Dr. Kathy Rabago has created Music Theory Courses for students. These courses are the very definition of flipped learning and something that I have been wanting to find for a while. Students learn the music theory concepts at home or during their music lab time, reinforce the concepts through worksheets (provided), and return to their lessons with an increased knowledge of music theory.
