Music Theory Lessons

This program is supported by internationally-recognised music theory research and fosters deep and meaningful learning by teaching musical relationships, patterns and possibilities. Whether preparing for AMEB or ATAR, or simply enriching their minds or enhance their performance, students enrolled in this program become better listeners and performers through the study of music theory. All Academic Program classes are taught by the Academy Director and award-winning former lecturer of musicology.

Premium Learning Experience

Traditional theory books tend to isolate elements of music into abstract exercises ignoring the relationship between what is written on the page and sound. The study of music theory at Advantage Music Academy emphasises the beauty and complexity of music and its incredible communicative power, not rules.

Informed Teaching & Learning

Unlike the content of even the most popular theory books written for exam preparation in both AMEB and ATAR courses, theory courses at the Academy are supported by internationally recognised, peer-reviewed scholarship and are taught by a former lecturer of music theory and recipient of two university teaching excellence awards.

Tailored Learning Experience

Students wishing to study theory simply to expand their minds, enrich their learning experience and enhance their performance receive a tailored course to suit their level, specific needs, and to be relevant to the music being played on the instrument.

Assessment OF LEARNING

not learning


Students at Advantage Music Academy do not learn rules, they learn possibilities. Students do not learn through abstract exercises alone but through the study of music. Emphasis is not placed on rote learning, but meaningful learning, and the development and retention of skills that can be transferred into any field of work or study.


Advantage Music Academy offers AMEB Theory of Music Courses for all grades, including diploma levels. The Academy also offers ATAR tutoring in all areas, including historical and cultural perspectives, theory and aural, and tailored courses to enrich the students' learning experience in performance. In all courses, theory is linked to sound and musical effect. Courses are taken one-to-one, shared, and group contexts.
