RCM Level 9 Harmony and Counterpoint

YouTube Links for Text and Exercise Music Excerpts


Enhance your teaching with this compilation of YouTube links for the music excerpts from each unit of the Level 9 Celebrate Theory book. Includes excerpts for explanatory text, aural, harmonic, and formal analysis exercises. Links are time-stamped and will bring you directly to the start of the example in the book. Most videos include the score. Listening examples are especially useful for enhancing interactive content when teaching online.

The complete list of timestamped YouTube playlist links, grouped by unit, is available in a pdf document. 

In a few cases, the video may not appear in the actual playlist on YouTube although the link is available below. This is because of sharing restrictions for children’s material and mostly applies to nursery rhyme songs featured in the book.


If any YouTube links are no longer valid or in case of omissions/errors, please drop me a line at so that I can find an alternative and update the list.


A link for each full playlist is located below the unit.  If playing the videos directly from YouTube, the timestamps are indicated in the unit’s playlist description, as the actual start times of the videos cannot be altered.
