Music theory is the study of the building blocks and structuring of classical music. By learning music theory, one gains access to a much more in-depth understanding of music, enabling them to have a more thorough and detail-oriented approach to performance.
The Royal Conservatory curriculum requires any student participating in practical exams in level 5 or higher to be proficient in beginner level theory. The aim of this is to provide students with more theoretical knowledge regarding the pieces they play, thus returning a more expressive and logical understanding of the music. As students progress in music theory, some even find themselves learning and memorizing music faster as they use their knowledge of theory as an additional layer in their breakdown of the music.
An additional benefit of these exams is that they can count towards secondary school diploma credits.
At Dio Piano School we prepare students for these theory exams with our students often completing them with First Class Honours and Distinction.
