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, its incredible communicative power, and we link it to sound, we don't teach "rules". We teach how and why - anyone can teach what. We teach music first, then we use books to reinforce and practice concepts.

Informed Teaching & Learning

Unlike the content of even the most popular theory books written for exam preparation in AMEB, theory courses at the Academy are supported by internationally recognised, peer-reviewed scholarship and are overseen by the Academy Director, a former lecturer of music theory and recipient of two university teaching excellence awards. That's why don't teach from or to the books.

Assessment of learning

...not learning for assessment.

 Our focus is student learning, not assessment. 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. We teach skills and concepts - the 'how' and 'why' so that students can approach any question or problem in an assessment with confidence.
