Briarcrest Senior Caroline Mohler Scores At The Top of the AP Music Theory Scale!
Congratulations to Briarcrest Senior Caroline Mohler for demonstrating her music gifts last spring by being one of the top AP Music Theory students in the United States scoring Briarcrest’s first composite score of 5, the highest obtainable mark on the test!
Not only did she score a perfect score nationwide but, she scored 5 on every sub-score on the test, putting near the top of the nearly 20,000 student musicians taking the grueling 3-hour exam. "God has blessed Caroline with a wonderful tonal memory, which allows her to hear melodies and in quick order write them down. She has developed that skill to include hearing harmonic progressions and visually analyzing musical scores. These skills, along with a myriad of others makes Caroline an example for all future music theory students," said Skip Quinn, one of Briarcrest's music teachers.
Caroline is a member of the Honors Chamber Choir and the exclusive acapella group OneVoice. She has written two original songs for OneVoice including “Here To Stay" nominated for Best Scholastic Original Song in the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards. She is a member of the National Honor Society, National Latin Honor Society, Key Club, The Wilson Society and a six-time winner of the Joseph A. Clayton Academic Excellence Awards. She attends Christ United Methodist Church and is active in the student ministry group. Caroline plans to major in songwriting in college.
