Why is this part of the curriculum?
Theory is at the core of every musician’s success — from understanding omission parentheses and brackets to interpreting a handbells-used chart, to simply using appropriate verbiage for various musical concepts. For both ringer and director alike, a working knowledge of music theory helps to ensure greater success in comprehending rhythms, understanding key changes, and creating music rather than just playing the notes and rhythm.
