Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Barry Long is the coolest professor ever, and I never realized you could learn so much about jazz! Barry is very relaxed, but also ridiculously knowledgable and lives what he teaches. You get from his classes what you give, but the atmosphere is so comfortable and conducive to learning. This is part history, part theory.
As I said above, Barry Long is an inspiring professor, and has completely changed my views on jazz music! Barry is very relaxed, which makes learning really fun and easy, but also he's ridiculously knowledgable and lives what he teaches, so you know what you are learning is quality stuff. The frequency of cat and Beyonce videos is great, but the videos of performances by jazz greats and new artists are even better.

Advice for students:
Come prepared, be on time, and don't be alarmed when Barry doesn't crucify you for a late assignment, but don't take advantage of his kindness, either.
