Music Theory Independent Study (MTIS) an online theory course for students ages 6 to adult
The beauty of this course is flexibility!! Students can choose to do theory work any time of day, at their own convenience. Upon registering for the course, students will gain access to online websites consisting of hundreds of music theory exercises and games of all levels, including MusicLearningCommunity.com. (feel free to take a sneak peek!!). Students can access the website from any computer with internet access and sound capabilities, at any time - day or night (with their parent's approval, of course!). As students play the games, their scores are recorded and monitored by the CMS Theory Administrator, Ashley Floyd. While much of the instruction is done directly through the technology, students will also receive email assignments and suggestions for improvement from Mr. Floyd.
The pace of the course is completely individual. There are no end-of-semester tests, no skill set required to accomplish within any semester. Because the course is completely independent, students who want to play multiple times a week will most likely progress quickly through the levels, while those who only play once or twice a week will progress slower.
