Lively, Michael T.
Music Educators Journal, v104 n1 p47-54 Sep 2017
Each year, many students take the Advanced Placement (AP) Music Theory Exam, and the majority of these students enroll in specialized AP music theory classes as part of the preparation process. For the teachers of these AP music theory classes, a number of challenges are presented by the difficulty and complexity of the exam subject material as well as by issues related to the mixed abilities and backgrounds of the students in any particular AP classroom. This article presents a variety of teaching strategies for both new and experienced AP music theory teachers and offers a brief overview of textbooks and other instructional materials that can be used when teaching the AP music theory course.
