Texas State Theory Test
WHY WE TEACH MUSIC THEORY AT NSSOTA:
-A deep understanding of music theory creates literacy, enabling the musician to understand, read, write and speak the language of music.
-Equips the student to make practical application to music, learning beyond just “playing the written score”
-A working knowledge of theory empowers the student to create, arrange, and make music of their own.

WHY WE TAKE THE TEXAS STATE THEORY TEST:
-All NSSOTA students grades 1-12, all instruments, are encouraged to take the Texas State Theory Test.
-Intended to evaluate the knowledge of music theory, aural, and musicianship concepts across a broad musical spectrum beyond the study of their private instrument
-Very attractive on student’s music bio/resume/college application
