Pretty easy, overall.
I am a pre-med student, so this is not a course that I would normally take. However, I am glad that I did! Not only did I learn about the music associated with different African cultures, regions, and traditions, but I was also able to enjoy the material as it was presented. This was one of the few classes at Vandy that I can honestly say that I have throughly enjoyed.
Africa Week and the interactive African dance lesson (provided by a professional African [Nigerian] dancer) are the highlights of this course. Both events bring the material learned to class to life and involve the active participation of students.

Advice for students:
Although, they are not graded harshly, do not wait until the last minute to complete assignments. They are a wonderful learning opportunity.
