    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course unless you are VERY into music. When I say music, I mean music from the 1700's and beyond. I enjoy music, but this music is different. If you want to learn about the different timbres, ostinatos, madrigals, etc., then I would recommend this course for you. If you have no interest in what these words mean, I would suggest staying away from this course.

    Course highlights:

    Although I did not enjoy this course very much, I took a lot away from it. I learned how music has evolved over hundreds of years and why. I learned about the most famous composers of different eras. One highlight of this course is the fact that there are a lot of extra-credit opportunities. If you didn't do so well on the test, there are ways to make lost points up.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My biggest piece of advice for anyone interested in a music appreciation course is to be prepared to study things you may not want to study. Be prepared to listen to music you may not be interested in. To me, the most effective way to study for this class is to make a listening guide for the music and write flashcards. Lots of them!
