Product Description
All the PowerPoints for AP Music Theory *BUNDLE*

This fantastic bundle includes every PowerPoint presentation for the ENTIRE COURSE in convenient PDF for projection PLUS black-and-white handout versions for students. All my revisions and additions after years of teaching this course are included! 160 slides + handouts!

Whether you are new to teaching AP Music Theory or a veteran looking for new resources, this complete set of PowerPoint presentations is clear, concise, and comprehensive. Explanations are simple and straightforward, illustrated with musical examples and color-coded indicators of the element being discussed.

This product uses the Idiom method for realization. The concept is simple and powerful – rather than painstakingly adding each note of each chord and checking for all possible voice-leading problems, the idiom method asks students to memorize sets that are free of errors, then simply write the pre-checked idiom and fill in any gaps. The only thing you have to check are the gap-fillers and the idioms are guaranteed to be correct. Using this method, my students get 5s on the exam and have lots of time left over to double check all their work – no more stress about the time limits.

All presentations are organized into units and self-paced as ‘Class 1,’ Class 2,’ etc.

Includes the following Scoring Criteria (SC) topics:

• SC1 rudiments and terminology of music: notational skills, scales, keys, intervals, chords, meter, and rhythm.
• SC2 writing a bass line for a given melody, implying appropriate harmony, or harmonization of a given melody in four parts.
• SC3 realization of a figured bass.
• SC4 realization of a Roman numeral progression.
• SC5 harmonic analysis.
• SC6 analysis of motivic treatment.
• SC7 scales: major, minor, modal, pentatonic and whole tone.
• SC8 functional triadic harmony in traditional four-voice texture and keyboard style, based on common practice tonality.
• SC9 non-harmonic (non-chord) tones.
• SC10 seventh chords.
• SC11 secondary dominants.
• SC12 modulation to closely related keys.
• SC13 phrase structure.
• SC15 how to listen for intervals, scales, and chords; dictations, etc.
• SC16 skills for sight-singing.

NO specific textbooks or other materials are needed to use this resource!
BONUS: Free assignment in Unit 5 for Roman Numeral Analysis, including Answer Key

This product aligns with the rest of my resources for AP Music Theory, including homework assignments, ear-training assignments, practice work with answers, teacher planner, unit plans, summer prep assignment, and more. Be sure to follow my shop for updates when new products in the series are released!

Please note that this product does not include completing a melody or small forms as I do not use PowerPoints to teach these topics. Look for the Completing a Melody and Form Packet in my store, or get it all together in the bundle (coming soon)!
