Being called a musician goes beyond the practical element and derives from a theoretical foundation that has existed for as long as the sound of music has existed.

    Arcadia Academy of Music honours this rich history and recognizes the importance of Music Theory in the development of a music student’s musicianship and prowess on the instrument. With this, we offer numerous theory courses based on the curriculum of the Royal Conservatory of Music that is proven to be:

    • An enhancement to learning an instrument
    • Development of life skills like critical thinking, problem solving and self-discipline and the ability to be even more focused.

    In addition, completing particular RCM theory courses leads to achieving two (2) high school credits.

    “Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.”

    Ludwig van Beethoven
