Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class was filled with fun lectures and discussions. The professor is great and he knows what he is talking about. The layout of the class is easy to follow and predictable so taking notes is easy. Professor Carr is a teacher that really wants students to pass his course, so he is willing to help out in any way.
I learned the history of rock music from the 1950's and on. I really enjoyed learning about the early rock because the culture was so different back then. We learned about several different genres including hip-hop, rhythm and blues, and metal. I learned about the music, the producing proccess, and the culture that music formed.

Advice for students:
Students considering this course should familiarize themselves with genres spanning across rock music. I wish I had an idea about each genre before I walked in so I did not have to try to familiarize myself with the genre and the music at the same time. Also, watch the vidoes professor carr posts, in all of his tests he uses examples from the pool of videos he puts on canvas.
