About Theory Time®

Theory Time® has served public and private music educators and students since its inception in 1996. The company is located in Missouri City, Texas and is owned by Heather and Ron Rathnau. Theory Time® designs, creates, and publishes innovative material for general music theory education. The Workbook Series was successfully introduced at the Texas Music Teacher’s Convention in June 1996 and was quickly adopted by teachers throughout Texas, Louisiana, and the southern region. The popularity of this series grew in a very short time, and music companies throughout the U.S. now offer Theory Time workbooks to their customers. Teacher Editions were produced to complement the workbooks. Private teachers, private and parochial schools, home school students and magnet schools are particularly attracted to the extensive reference material, drills, Fun and Challenge Sheets, review tests and self-study features included in the workbooks.

Theory Time® also serves music educators in public schools. The Reproducible Curriculum Series and complementary Answer Sheets, Fun & Challenge Sheet packets, and Test Packs were written for classroom use. The themed Summer Camp Reproducible packets (also used as cross-curriculum study material), Games, Flashcards and other Teaching Aids were also designed to enrich the learning process.
