    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are a music major at MTSU, this class is a requirement. Dr. Shearon is one of the most boring teachers you will ever have. He simply reads off of a powerpoint and drones on and on in the driest voice you'll ever hear. You'll learn a lot about the different cultures of music in the world, but you'll have to try your hardest not to fall asleep.

    Course highlights:

    The most exciting thing from this course was getting to visit the MTSU Center for Chinese Music. There was a massive replica of royal bronze bells used by ancient emperors of the past, as well as several exhibits of different aspects of Chinese music and culture.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    He puts the powerpoints online, however you should still pay attention in class for anything he might say that isn't on the powerpoint. STUDY FOR THE EXAMS!It's not something you can just cram for the night before! AND DO THE READING!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The information is great, but the teacher is very boring. The teaching style is not all that fun either. Only take this if you have to.

    Course highlights:

    The higlight was definitely when the teacher brought in African drummers. The course was about music as a whole around the world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to memorize the study guide word for word as this is how the tests are made up.
