Since the Royal Conservatory of Music changed the level at which theory co-requisites begin, we often see music students scrambling to get their theory exams done in time. 

Our solution to this problem is our
Online Theory Courses:

 

  • With only a few hours of in-class work each day, students can work through the material of an RCM level in one week.

  • Each class will be held synchronously via Zoom and will include lecture, time in breakout rooms, material checking, and Q&As.

  • The class dates for each level will be announced as they are filled. Dates will be decided based on student and teacher availability. 

  • The cost for a theory course for levels 1-4 is $250 not including materials.

  • The cost for a theory course for levels 5-9 is $300 not including materials.

  • If a student should need substantial additional one-on-one time, it can be provided at additional cost.
