Product Description
Summer/ Prep Assignment for AP Music Theory

This prep assignment for AP Music Theory is exactly what you need to make sure that everyone is on the same page before the first class. Students are given an assignment that helps them determine where their weaknesses lie.

Bonus: the chart on the last page points students to explanation and practice pages in their workbook so they can brush up on concepts over the summer break, even without a teacher.

Quick to complete (about 15 minutes for well-qualified students) and easy to mark, this assignment also works very well as a placement test to ensure that students fully grasp basic concepts and terms in music theory. The assignment answer key is included, too!

This assignment touches all the basics including:
• note/ rest values
• stem direction
• clefs, staff
• note naming in 4 clefs: treble, bass, alto, tenor
• ledger lines
• barlines
• time signatures
• meter
• piano keyboard
• accidentals
• enharmonic equivalence
• dynamics
• tempo
• style markings
• articulation
• road maps (repeats, etc.)

IMPORTANT: The last page of this product (the chart) makes use of the textbooks included in the approved syllabus found in the TeachingWise Complete Curriculum Bundle for AP Music Theory. (Please see citation below. Available on Amazon for $46.00)
This product can still be used without the specified book, you will simply have to alter the last page by providing the page numbers for whatever textbook you use.

Sarnecki, Mark. The Complete Elementary Music Rudiments, 2nd ed. Toronto, ON: Frederick Harris Music Co. Ltd., 2010.
