Official Companion for Conservatory Canada Theory Examinations

Authors: Steven Fielder, D. F. Cook
Format: Book (Spiral Bound)
Version: Theory Text

The study of Theory (rudiments and, later, harmony) is essential for a complete musical education. Musicians with a firm understanding of theoretical concepts will better understand and interpret the pieces they perform. Moreover, it will also enhance their musical skills in sight reading, ear training, keyboard harmony, and memorization. 

Conservatory Canada's theory program is made up of a series of seven grades. Theory 1-3 is a graded study of rudiments. Theory 4 -- a course unique to Conservatory Canada -- makes the bridge between advanced rudiments and a short introduction to the basic concepts of beginning harmony. Further study of harmony and counterpoint continues with Grades 5-7. The requirements for each grade are outlined in the Conservatory's official Theory Syllabus. 

This Theory 2 book reviews material from Theory 1, and builds upon it by introducing new material in accordance with Conservatory Canada syllabus requirements. The layout, using large type and point form, is intended to assist younger students. The workbook format offers plenty of graded exercises for each topic, with regular review tests of the material covered thus far. These Review Tests are intended to provide an informal, but regular, evaluation of the student's progress. Thus, the allotment of marks per question in the Review Test is not meant to reflect examination marking, but rather is designed to allow teachers total discretion in awarding marks for partial success and consistent effort.
