Music Theory & Ear Training

The Basic Musicianship, Music Theory/Ear Training program at San Diego Mesa College is rigorous and employs an evolution in teaching music literacy using technology. The aim of the program is to facilitate learning basic musicianship, music theory & ear training so that musical elements can be recalled quickly and easily. For information on Basic Muscianship, Music Theory I-IV, and Ear Training I-IV, please contact Gina Jung.

All students wishing to start must either first pass the MUSI 150A Basic Musicinship online assessment test or take the 1 semester course. 

Contact Gina Jung to be assessed live in Zoom.

If you need proof of the assessment from Prof. Jung, ask her to send you a statment so that you can approach the professor for a permission number to register for the class you assessed for. 

Basic Musicianship, Music Theory & Ear Training Classes

In order to motivate students to spend more time practicing music fundamentals, online music theory & ear training quizzes are used in conjunction with in-class testing in Basic Musicinship, Music Theory & Ear Training classes. 

Students going through all four semesters of music theory and ear training are often able to transfer to a four-year college and test directly into upper division courses. The feedback from faculty in the San Diego area is that San Diego Mesa College students are musically competent and understand their musical fundamentals.
