To play music, you have to understand music. In my studio, we spend the summer and fall months reviewing and learning music theory concepts. These concepts form the core of our understanding of what we are playing. As students are completing the pages of their workbooks, I often hear them say, "That was easy!" If they have thoroughly prepared their ears and their fingers, their mental understanding of the music deepens, enriches, and entrenches their experience.
On November 12, these students will get an opportunity to show off their accomplishments. Katy MTA will offer the TMTA Fall Theory Test at Westland Baptist Church, 1407 West Grand Parkway South, 77494. Following are the times of the grade level tests. Double check which level or grade your student is working on. A quick look at the number on the front of their theory book will inform you of which level test they will be taking.
1st - 9:30
2nd - 9:30
Thanks to all for the intense studying!
