"I'm at Quinnipiac, majoring in Game Design and minoring in Music. I am currently in a class called "Understanding Music". It's very easy after taking AP® Music Theory at VHS. I talked to the professor who's in charge of all the music stuff, and asked if I should skip ahead in the music program. So he asked me questions like "Spell out a G minor chord. What's the key signature of Db major?" And I got all of his questions right except for one. I felt like a genius. He said I should skip Theory I and go right to Theory II next semester. So basically, because of everything I learned in AP® Music Theory, I get to skip ahead to Theory II in college. So thank you for teaching me!
P.S. The final exam in Understanding Music is to compose a 4-measure song. But my teacher noticed that I'm a genius and he told me that my final will be to compose a 24-measure song. But I'm not worried." - Drew Osik, St. Peter Marian High School
