Comprehensive Theory Program From Early Childhood Through Adult Students
Fox River Academy Theory Classes are available for both Academy and non-Academy students wishing to supplement their musical education. Classes are designed to reinforce students’ understanding on theory concepts learned in private lessons, suchas rhythm, note-reading, musical terms, listening, etc. in a fun and comfortable group setting. Curriculum ranges from basicconcepts of music theory (ear training, music reading, and notation) to more advanced concepts (key systems, chord theory, style analysis, etc). Theory classes are once a week and last 50 minutes, and the majority of assignments are done in class.
At Fox River Academy, we want to ensure that students are placed in the appropriate theory level that will challenge them and provide the most optimum opportunity to advance in their music learning. Before starting (and at the conclusion of each consecutive quarter), students take a Placement Test specifically designed to assess the appropriate theory level the student should participate in. Students are placed in classes according to their skill level and musical experience.
