In-depth study on the how, why and what of music

Music Theory involves learning about written music and musical rules. Music Theory Group classes bring together up to 4 students at a time and are geared towards the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) theory requirements for grade 5 and up. However, we highly recommend that every student study theory, whether or not they are preparing for an exam.


  • Jr /Beginner Theory (ages 6-9)
  • Basic rudiments (age 10+) (co-requisite for Level 5 RCM)
  • Intermediate rudiments (co- requisite Level 6 and 7 RCM)
  • Advanced rudiments (co-requisite Grade 8 RCM)
  • Harmony/History (co-requisite Grade 9, 10 and A.R.C.T)


30min-90min group class each week depending on level. Times based on registration and are TBD.
