Colburn’s summer Music Theory Intensive is three weeks of concentrated study for students who wish to build their knowledge and advance more quickly through the music theory curriculum of the Community School. Each level is equivalent of one year of theory, including six hours of class time each week and at least one hour of homework each day. Intensives are open to current continuing students or those pre-approved to enroll through our placement test. An exam to qualify for advancement into the next class level for the fall semester is offered at the end of the intensive.
