Music Theory Classes

Theory Classes are a great addition to your Omaha Conservatory of Music experience!  Students who participate in our theory classes will be working with Artist Faculty in group classes that follow the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum. Students who are new to our theory classes will take a placement exam so that they can be scheduled into the appropriate class. Materials and theory workbook are provided.

Level 5 Theory students and above also have the opportunity to take the official RCM Theory Test offered three times per year.

  • Times: Saturdays, 9:30-10:30am, 10:30-11:30am
  • Dates: 
    • Fall:  Sept. 14 - Dec. 7
    • Spring: Jan. 11- April 4 (no class on March 14)
  • Cost: $125 per semester

Conservatory student Winston Schneider, 7, demonstrates music theory concepts including scales, scale degrees, leading tone, and more. See another of Winston's videos on our theory lessons page.


In the event of any student absence, please notify your instructor in advance. After the second consecutive missed class without notice or contact, the student may be dismissed and the date of the second missed class will be considered the official withdrawal date. All withdrawal policies will be followed.

Students are encouraged to be on time.  Students who are late for class cannot be guaranteed their full class time.

Omaha Conservatory of Music reserves the right to dismiss any student without a refund due to frequent absences, disciplinary problems, overdue tuition payments, and/or noncompliance with the Conservatory's policies.

Group class tuition payments are due 5 days prior to the first class session.  Class tuition is non-refundable after this point, regardless of the reason for withdrawal.

Did you know your tuition only covers 70% of our costs?

Our annual tuition, which includes 40 weeks of private instruction plus the opportunity to attend dozens of Conservatory events at no additional cost, doesn't cover the total cost of your musical education here. If you would like to help us cover the remaining 30 percent, please give what you can — or consider being a recurring donor to support our mission all year long!
