    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was interesting, large class, make sure you listen to the music as it is a large part of the tests. Professor was very nice, and was a good teacher. Make sure you get concert reports done early.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning the history of music, and when he would compare music from so long ago to music they play on the radio. He made it very relatable

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do readings, and listen to the music examples! It is very important and will be in the tests, actually study dont think you can just walk in and take it. always remember to bring headphones

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is the perfect overview of classical music from antiquity to Renaissance. This course focused on applying listening techniques to classical music so that anyone can enjoy it and learn something from it, regardless of previous music experience or knowledge. It is a very applicable course for a GE since it teaches skills that you can use outside of class and gives a background of influential music that most people are familiar with at least to a degree that they can talk about it. Only people who do not like music at all or who only listen to pop music will find it a little bit boring. The teacher was good, and the tests are doable if you have studied the vocabulary terms and have listened to the pieces a couple times. Since it includes listening exams, you can easily study for this class (listen to the music) while studying for another class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different movements in music history and the key elements of each distinct genre and style covered in the class. I learned how to easily identify these characteristics in classical music.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The reading is good to put everything in context, but can be skimmed or done sporadically. If you don't do the reading, make sure you go to class and take detailed notes. And either way, do the listening assignments. You can easily do the listening assignments while going over your class notes or the readings. Take advantage of this class! Music is a big part of culture and learning to listen to and appreciate classical music for what it is is extremely helpful in other subjects and just talking to people about culture. It will also help you to appreciate other kinds of music and notice the differences that make each genre unique. And it won't numb your brain.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was one of my favorite classes. I was able to learn new music terminology and able to gain a bigger interest in Classical music.

    Course highlights:

    I loved being able to learn the new music terms. Terms that I really did not know about and being able to listen to all the different styles of music. I learned that I like a lot more classical music than before.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to always do the reading and know the artist and the title of each piece.
