ACOMA Music Theory & History Textbooks for RCM Examinations Exams
We are proud to announce that in both 2009 and 2010, the Acoma Theory textbook series was used by the RCM Gold Medal Winner in Music Theory.  They both had an averaged grade of 95.5! The RCM Gold Medal in Music Theory is awarded to the student with the highest grade point average for theory exams across Canada receiving their ARCT. Our theory textbooks offer a unified approach to learning aided by a consistency of materials as they progress through the levels of theory. This makes it much easier for them to complete the advanced courses and if they desire, it gives them the ability to concentrate on the creative and artistic parts of the exam.   Acoma's textbooks are used exclusively at the Ware Academy of Music.
