The Theory Area at the University of Missouri School of Music seeks to cultivate the highest level of musical thought in its students. Active listening, a skill necessary for understanding music and cultivating musical thought, requires musical proficiency. These skills include playing an instrument at a moderately accomplished level, reading a musical score, achieving fundamental fluency in keyboard harmony, and hearing what one sees in a score and seeing in a score what one hears.
