The Ultimate Music Theory Series

Achieving an average student test result of 90% or better on either the Royal Conservatory or the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement tests in music theory is a difficult result for many students to achieve when being taught by teachers using older teaching methods and incomplete theory training materials. With the UMT teaching certification and the related UMT products, achieving this result is commonplace when students learn through the well-structured Ultimate Music Theory Series Workbooks and program by Glory St Germain.

For the student, the UMT system of learning the rudiments of music theory is very rewarding. It builds personal confidence, a sense of accomplishment, pride in achievement and it is a lot of fun too.

Not only that but teachers are finding the teaching methods, the graded, systematic, and thorough approach, as developed by Glory St Germain, as highly practical, useful and beneficial.

For the teacher of music theory the UMT programs help to make their job a lot more rewarding. Teaching music theory is made far easier, and considerably more satisfying as more students attain higher grades on their RCM examinations, achieving a score of greater than 90% when learning through the Ultimate Music Theory program. The UMTC program for teachers includes the key teaching technologies and methods developed by Glory and integrated into the UMT Teachers Music Theory Certification program.

Glory St Germain and the Ultimate Music Theory Series

The Ultimate Music Theory Series workbooks were developed over the span of 35 years of teaching music theory to young students in a classroom environment. The reasoning behind putting the UMT Series workbooks together was not simply to write another book on the subject of music theory. It was to codify what works in the classroom for students and teachers and to develop high quality materials within a framework of supporting the music theory syllabus and RCM music theory examination requirements for the Carnegie Royal Conservatory Achievement Program and the Royal Conservatory of Music. The Ultimate Music Theory program thereby establishes and sets a new standard for teachers and students in the study of music theory.

Glory St Germain - Workbooks

Supporting Practices and Products – As if this wasn’t enough, Glory includes advanced teaching strategies which address the multi-sensory learning styles of audio, visual and kinesthetic (tactile) along with peer group social learning activities. The multi-sensory approach involves the use of a student whiteboard where the student can practice writing and drawing the concepts included in music theory. Students using the whiteboard are much more involved in the learning process. This type of classroom environment supports the student and helps to develop student confidence and greatly improves their music writing capabilities and their memory on difficult subject matter within the study of music theory.

Student White Board - Glory St Germain

Further, flash cards were created and added to the workbooks further supporting a positive learning environment as are teacher supervised games where the students participate individually or in groups making learning fun! The games provide a peer group of students in an environment where they can learn and experience music theory in a socially interactive way. By the very nature of social interaction, students support one another and in some ways, it creates a competitive learning environment encouraging students onward through their studies.

These additions to the Ultimate Music Theory Series workbooks also support teachers by providing a means through which total involvement by their students can be easily attained. It helps teachers to create a learning environment where fun, peer group interactivity and learning are all improved and where students have rewarding learning experiences. The results speak for themselves with an average test score exceeding 90% on the RCM music theory exams.

Overcome Issues When Teaching Music Theory

Many current teaching methods in use today have issues limiting learning and educational achievement in the classroom. These issues also limit teacher’s effectiveness which can lead to a point of disappointment and an inability to be as effective as they hoped they would be. In most all cases these types of issues typically cause a lot of frustration and anxiety for both student and teacher. In that way learning is at risk of being interrupted, disrupted or prevented from occurring altogether. Achievement then becomes a highly stressful and unreachable goal. Actual learning of any classroom course takes considerably more time to accomplish without effective teaching systems and while under stressful conditions.
