Class Experience

The goal of this class is for your to have enough knowledge on Music Theory for you to test-out of an entry-level Music Theory class in college. Please note, this class is not for college credit, nor does it contain or cover AP Music Theory material. This class is merely to prepare a student for the rigors of college-level Music Theory course work.

The class is divided into the following weeks and topics. Keep in mind that this outline is fluid and the weeks can change depending on the pace of each section: (Spring 2023 dates will be added in once the class listing is approved.)

Week of January 1-7: Pitch and Pitch Class - how we read notes in various ways.
Week of January 8-14: Simple Time Signatures - learning and understanding time signatures, and how we organize beats and rhythms. 
Week of January 15-21: Composing a Simple Song from Pitch Class and Time Signatures
Week of January 22-28: Pitch Collections - how notes are ordered organized.
Week of January 29 - February 4: Compound Time Signatures - more complex and advance time signatures
Week of February 5-11: Minor Keys and the Diatonic Modes - more ways we read and organize notes. 
Week of February 12-18: Intervals - spacing and distancing between pitches. 
Week of February 19-25: Composing a Simple Song using a Minor Key
Week of February 26 - March 4: Triads part 1 - introduction to chords, spelling triads and their contexts. 
Week of March 5-11: Seventh Chords - spelling 7th chords, their structures, and context in music.

Seckman currently teaches both in-person and online music classes and lessons in his school in Kansas.

Students will be given homework after each class they can complete on their own time. The class also includes 2 composing projects that will be done together in class.

Homework assignments will act as a review of the class and take place as a Google Form and the link will be posted in the classroom the day of the class. These forms will be graded to give students instant feedback and they will be given the opportunity to re-do their homework as many time as needed.
Students will be given a PDF of the class notes they can follow along with, along with a worksheet they can fill out during the class. This will be posted in the classroom the day of the class to give students time to print the PDF if they wish.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students answers of their homework will be checked for comprehension. 
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
