Total Theory

The ‘whole language’ approach of the Total Theory Course combines theoretical knowledge with the visual and aural aspects of learning.

With direct and simple explanations, the Total Theory Course is designed to meet the needs of students of all ages, in both private and/or class instruction as well as for students studying independently.

Students, especially those seeking Conservatory examinations, will find the many written exercises useful preparatory exam material. The summaries, reference charts and directive lists provide quick reference points for the student, while the graded reviews and tests are beneficial in evaluating progress.

In addition to the actual Total Theory texts, free downloads have been created for the users of Total Theory. These downloads include additional teaching tools, Chapter Challenges (end of chapter review tests) and signs and terms.

The Total Theory Course – which complies with the Royal Conservatory of Music, Conservatory Canada and Northern Lights Canadian National Conservatory of Music curriculums – provides the theory student with a comprehensive, educationally sound and ‘user friendly’ rudiments program.
