This is the OBU music theory placement exam to determine the starting point in the music theory sequence for each incoming freshman. There are two starting points in music theory studies: 1) Introduction to College Theory, 2) Music Theory I.

A 90% or higher on this placement test is required for placement into Music Theory I.

Regardless of placement level, all incoming freshman music majors also take Music Theory I LAB and Aural Skills I.
