    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Morris Nelms is the epitome of Jazz player, he's got an impeccable sense of style, and his teaching methods are a blast. On the first day of class, he plays for you some improvised jazz piano and explains his syllabus. For those students who are taking this class as a requirement, his passion for teaching shows throughout the semester. From including students in the singing, to making gospel music fun, Dr. Nelms really brings fine arts and music to life.

    Course highlights:

    What I gained. What I gained was the passion to become a professor. If teaching can be this fun and interesting, why can't every teacher bring this sort of excitement to their class. Over the course, I learned about differentiating chords, how to sing with my stomach and not my head; I learned to hear the difference between a major and a minor chord and most importantly, I learned that you might look crazy out on the street practicing your rhythm and scales on the street, but if you're grade is improving, then who cares?

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want a fun, easy and interesting class, take Dr. Nelms, because he also plays in a band in Austin and they are a lot of fun. If you want to learn information and retain it, take his class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Nelms is an overall astounding professor. He is very passionate about the things he talks about, all from the paintings of Picasso to the symphonies performed by Beethoven.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of insight in the mind of the musician. Learned how music is more like a language than anything else, much like math it can be understood by many.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Of course attend class, that is always a great way to start, and also attend events to later do your critique project early in the semester
