    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is an in depth look at the history and development of Jazz music. From its origins and roots in Creole/ African American culture to its development as a style of music unlike any the world had seen before. Going from a symbol of a rebellious youth movement to a symbol of freedom and equality, Jazz has an interesting and rich history. This course is designed to share that history and encourage the listening and appreciation of it.

    Course highlights:

    This course may sound boring, but I assure you it is an incredible class. It taught me so much about a form of art I previously had little interest in. I learned about the many prominent figures in Jazz and their stories and careers. Every artist you learn about has a unique history and personality. I also learned the names of dozens of Jazz songs and their composers. I also learned about the make up of Jazz: what instruments are in it, how Jazz bands are arranged. Overall I have learned many interesting things that I have even shared with my friends and family.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Most of the course is spent watching a series of Jazz history DVDs. Take notes during these. The information they provide is what most of the exams will be on. Professor Drake will usually tell you what important things to write. The other portion of exams will be a music memory section. Each test has a different list of 8-10 songs. During the exam he will play five out of the songs and you have to write the name of the song and the artist. Make a playlist of the songs and just listen to a couple each day and you'll find it's easy to memorize. The biggest thing is to be on time. He starts right when class time starts. Show up to class to. He takes attendance and if you miss more than four classes, he starts deducting points for every class you miss.
