shares “what happened” after she completed the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course.

Deanna Dunster UMTC

“I have been teaching for over 30 years and I am still learning new things!

I loved taking the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course online.  I relearned many things I had forgotten, reinforced teaching concepts I already knew and learned things that were new to me.

I especially appreciated the support from Shelagh and her kind words in marking my UMTC exams.  I highly recommend the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course.

Thank you.”  – Deanna Dunster UMTC

Judith Gies UMTC

“I have to say that I really enjoyed my UMTC Course.  There were some concepts that I always struggled teaching because they seemed so difficult.  But you actually made it easy!

Helpful tips in learning the modes, things like “I Do Play Like Mozart And Listz” and counting number of notes to identify 20th century scales are genius.

Excellent course!  Thanks for creating it.

In the music world, this was desperately needed.” –  Judith Gies UMTC

Norma Donogh UMTC 2014“The Online Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course appealed to me initially because it enabled me to study from home and around my busy schedule, but it was so much more than that!

Through the many videos and worksheets I was able to sharpen my teaching skills while learning how to discover my own students’ learning styles.

Glory walks through each concept thoroughly with a step by step approach to the final answer. I appreciated the memory joggers and games that will certainly make our classes a little more fun, and I look forward to teaching effectively with all these new skills in hand. Thanks U.M.T.!” – Norma Donogh MYCC UMTC

The Benefits of Music Theory Certification

Music Theory has a long list of built-in benefits for students. The study of music theory can help students gain a deeper understanding of music composition and performance, especially using different instruments. The same principles that govern the study and production of music are the same that govern those of math and science, and can provide a deeper understanding of how the world around us works.

Rhythm and pitch can teach fundamental concepts of value, division, time and harmonics. Linguistics, acoustics and the properties of the air around us all have a profound effect on the performance and enjoyment of music. The modern tools of music production also provide a music theory student with equally as valuable opportunities to study electronics, computer science, broadcasting, sound recording and other aspects of production.

Why Get a Music Theory Certification?

Every entertainment market depends on music. From television commercials to sports to video games, musicians, songwriters and performers are called on constantly to provide entertaining, quality tracks for every kind of performance. It is a field with endless and growing opportunities.

Studies suggest that students that study music also broaden their ability to learn other subjects such as math and science and typically perform higher on standardized testing. These new learning skills will give students a new appreciation for what most people take for granted. It is a field well worth every student’s time.

Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course and Me

patrick jacobson umtc“This was my first year as a “High School Music Teacher”. I was scared, nervous, and excited all at the same time. I knew that I did not have the tools I required to teach any music theory. I went on line and came across the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course and Glory St. Germain.

I am a seasoned musician with an extensive background in practical (Hands-on) music but I had no music theory background.

Note: Many of my students, as well, do not have a background in music theory or any music background at all! But they leave knowing that they can play any instrument they want in the world because they know how to read music!

Thanks to Glory St. Germain and her easy to teach music theory methods, my students are taking off like rockets into the music stratosphere. I use all of the already made student-teacher-friendly lesson plans, review tests, exams and certificates. Many, if not all, of my students score 90 percent or better on each lesson and test. Student self-esteem shows each time they start to read and play their music.

I should also let you know that if a student comes to music class in an unhappy mood you will see them leave music class, or get asked to leave music class because it’s over, in a much happier mood. I am so grateful and happy for taking the time to learn how to teach music theory with ease, confidence and with passion. Thank you Glory for the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course.”
Patrick Jacobson B.G.S/B.Ed UMTC, Teacher – Frontier Collegiate Institute

“I signed up for the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course to learn how to market theory classes for more income. I was in for a SHOCK. I relearned some theory in a new way, I learned lots of theory I never knew and I finally understood some concepts that have caused me grief for years. This course was ABOVE and BEYOND anything I expected. It took me HIGHER and FURTHER than I expected to go.

It’s been a long time since I have been challenged this much, with so much fun, encouragement and support. This experience was professional, personable and complete. I felt valued, encouraged and supported in my desire to teach theory in a new way. What a fabulous and full experience.”
Elizabeth Freiter UMTC, Private Piano and Theory Teacher

Jennifer Latta UMTC and Glory St. Germain“I knew I’d be learning about theory, BUT I had no idea I’d learn how to be a better teacher and communicator.

I learned not only how to read a student’s body language to interpret their learning style, BUT also how to influence a student’s body language and attitude to the positive.”
– Jennifer Latta BA ARCT RMT UMTC

Joan Blench UMTC and Glory St. Germain“Thank you Glory and Shelagh for an extremely well thought out program of study.

The UMTC Course is a top quality training program and a wealth of resources to ensure that teachers as well as students have a sure way to score success.

I love all the teaching tips!”
Joan Blench B.A. (Mus) UMTC

Michelle Miller UMTC and Glory St. Germain“The Ultimate Music Theory course has given me a huge boost of confidence as a teacher.

I would highly recommend it to all of my fellow music teachers.

Challenged and inspired! It was amazing!”
Michelle Miller, BA RMT UMTC

“The certification course was excellent! Your program not only sets up the student for success but it will set me up as a teacher to carefully cover each concept with the same success.”

Study How Sounds Interact
The theory of music is learning the relationships between sounds, which is surprisingly mathematical. How do sounds interact? What is the difference between pitch and timbre? How can rhythm and voice be combined into different forms? When a music theorist studies these subjects, they are breaking the math of music down into the sonic equivalents of vocabulary and grammar for a writer.

Theory is not performance. More time is spent in composition than with an instrument in the early theory curriculum. To put it simply, students must learn the language of music before they can speak it. Once students have a grasp of the language of music, they can then put what they have learned into practice by deconstructing and then re-constructing chords. Students can learn to use chords, rhythm and time signatures to analyze, improvise or compose a piece of music that they will be proud of.

My Ultimate Music Theory Story – Glory St. Germain
I wanted to share my story, as the author of the Ultimate Music Theory Series, and creator of the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course… this is how it all began.

I did NOT start out as a confident theory teacher.

My teaching of music theory began with me being frustrated, confused, embarrassed and not knowing where to find the answers. Does that sound familiar? Remember your first experience in learning music theory? Well for me… I learned it three times.

They say to learn something new, you have to UNLEARN to RELEARN.

The first time I learned theory was at the age of 16, and just because I HAD TO… I wanted to play the piano and it was a “co-requisite” so there it was… BORING.

The second time I learned theory (fast forward 15 years) was when I found myself taking notes while sitting at the back of the room listening in on my young daughter Sherry’s theory class. Small embarrassing confession – I lacked retention of knowledge – how could I have forgotten so much? Perhaps I had found the lessons I learned the first time uninteresting.

We only truly learn when we are interested in learning a subject.

I observed how the students reacted to the class. The language was “technical” and not related to the music itself, there were no games, no laughing, no listening to music – just this feeling of GET this theory done and NO FUN.

So there I was, learning theory for the second time. Little did I know the most powerful lesson was yet to come…

Up to this point in my piano teaching studio, I didn’t have the confidence to even teach theory. I sent students to a different teacher for their theory lessons. Yes, ME, can you imagine… me not teaching theory! WHY did I do that? Because I genuinely loved my students enough to want the best possible education for them and I knew that when it came to theory, I couldn’t give it to them.

Until one day – the turning point…

The third time I learned theory was when a young student BEGGED me to teach her theory. Her exact words… “Miss Glory, I know you don’t know anything about theory, but if you are willing to learn, I would love it if you would teach me.” (Little did I know this conversation would one day become part of the Ultimate Music Theory Certification Course.)

That was the turning point – the beginning of the Ultimate Music Theory Series.

I wanted to learn and teach concepts in the simplest ways, to help young students RETAIN information and have fun learning (so they wouldn’t think it was BORING like me).

I became frustrated at NOT having any avenue to learn HOW to teach theory (which is a whole lot different than learning theory as a student – I know because I did it three times).

So, I began a journey to find a better way to make teaching theory something that any teacher could do – especially me.

A realization came to me… Education is about learning and teaching and learning MORE to grow as a teacher.

I had started teaching at the age of 16, but it wasn’t until I was in my 40’s that I completed my ARCT Degree. I taught Music for Young Children for 20 years. I studied early childhood education. I became a Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner specializing in communication, teaching and rapport building.

I struggled, read, taught, collaborated, made lots of mistakes, relearned teaching methods, made more mistakes, and then… finally… I did it.

What are the results of my learning and continued professional development?

As a teacher, you KNOW the importance of professional development and continuing with our own learning in order to improve the lives of others.

Education is a powerhouse and the more we learn the more we realize we need to keep on learning. I know that I simply MUST share this knowledge with other teachers so that YOU don’t have to spend 15 years learning it the hard way.
