Open Educational Resources for Undergraduate Music Theory

Kyle Gullings

This is a collection of assignments, projects, exams, and syllabi meant to cover the entire lower-division written music theory sequence. There are over 100 unique documents available in .pdf format, as well as editable .docx, .musx, and .xml formats.

The materials include 73 worksheets on 35 unique topics (most have 2 versions to allow for practice and graded assignments), 16 larger analysis and composition projects, 16 exams on 8 unique topic sets, and 4 syllabi.

While inherently modular, these materials are designed to align with the topics found in the free online “text”book Open Music Theory.

In some cases I have omitted audio links, scores, and lyrics from these materials, due to copyright restrictions. In such cases, instructors are encouraged to seek out and include the specified works, or alternate works of their choosing, for educational use.

I encourage others to use, share, edit, and build upon these materials, and to contact me to inform me about any such uses.
