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 to cover the requirements as outlined in the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum.  Students who are new to our theory classes will be asked to 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 who participate in the Conservatory Track program will have the opportunity to take the official RCM Theory Test this spring.  

  • Times: 9:30am & 10:30am Saturdays
  • Class Length: 60 minutes
  • Dates: 
    • FALL:  September 8 - August 20th (8 Sessions)
    • SPRING: January 19 - March 9th (8 Sessions)
  • Cost: $115 per semester (Theory classes are FREE for students enrolled in the Conservatory Track program)

 Enrollment for the 2018/19 class has now ended. Talk to your studio teacher if you would to enroll in theory.

NOTE: Fall Conservatory-track student registrations included a full year of theory classes, so no new sign-up is needed for enrollment in these classes during the second half of the year, if you are a Conservatory-track student. December communications stating otherwise were in error. We apologize for any confusion.

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.

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!
