Text-Neutral Music Theory is a series of specific objectives spanning the scope of
undergraduate Music Theory 1, 2, 3, and 4 courses. It is designed to (1) clearly
state what the student is to learn and (2) provide the tools to learn the objectives.
Text-Neutral means a student may use any resource that meets their desired learning
style and budget. Some may prefer a published text. Some prefer suggested online
reading, videos, activities, or their own internet searches. Text-Neutral Music
Theory includes barebones bullet-point explanations (QuickThinks), but you should
explore other learning resources for in-depth knowledge. Whatever your preferred
method, we believe if you know what are to learn, you can figure it out (YFIO).
The web-version of Text-Neutral Music Theory is intended as a reference for our college
theory students who no longer have access to course content. It includes objectives,
quickthinks, and suggested learning resources, but does not include self-assessments
or quizzes that are part of our college course.
Others are free to use the content as they wish, and if you find great online resources
for specific objectives, please feel free to share.
