At the Peabody Prep all students are encouraged to enroll in a theoretical studies class to complement individual instruction. Classes are available for ages 10 through adult, at beginning through advanced levels. New students are interviewed for proper placement. Classes are designed to help the student obtain a comprehensive music education via ear training, sight singing, note reading, keyboard skills and written work. At the Preparatory, students have the choice of two unique programs: Comprehensive Theory or Comprehensive Accelerated Teen Theory. Children under age 10 are strongly encouraged to take a beginning level music class either through the Early Childhood Department or audition for the Children's Chorus Training Choir.
