    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Both the instructor and teaching assistants try to make it fun, relatable, and easy to understand. Using the textbook, it was easy to read the chapter before class and go in to lecture with a little bit of knowledge. Then, they could easily fill in gaps or provide things that the textbook did not.

    Course highlights:

    The lecture is only one day a week, for 50 minutes. This is a very big plus. However, there is "lab" three days per week, for 50 minutes each time. In "lab" is where most of the teaching and understand actually happens. It is a very, very small class, where the teaching assistant goes over a concept usually two or more ways, to increase student understanding. Keyboards are also available in "lab" and by taking the course, you have access to the Music Library and practice rooms from the Music Department.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You really do not need any background in music theory to do well in this class. If you do not have prior music theory background, seriously consider going to office hours, using the online textbook supplements, and Musictheory.net. They are lifesavers and the instructors want you to do well.
