    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taken as an OCCHS course. Very relaxed atmosphere. Challenging tests, but enjoyed the course overall.

    Course highlights:

    Being required to attend concerts for the course proved to be very exciting and a lot of fun. I attended a piano concert by a professor at Marshall, and a live jazz concert in Smith Hall. A lunch was served after the piano concert, but that did not take away at all from the refined talent showcased in the performance.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to study for the exams, as you will not breeze by this if you do not already have a musical history knowledge.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, specifically with Professor Smith. He's a really great professor - he keeps the class interesting, and doesn't give boring lectures. He makes it relatable to the students, and presents the information in a way that's easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the different styles and composers of music throughout the centuries. I learned the basics of music structure, such as meters and music vocabulary. I also learned how music has blended together from various cultures throughout the years to create the music that we hear today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into this class with an open mind. Chances are, you are taking this class as a university requirement, rather than a major requirement. Even if you do not like music or find it uninteresting, give it a chance - it's not as bad as you may think. And always take notes in class. If you study your notes, you'll ace every test.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Somners was a graduate professor but he was amazing and clearly knew the material. He was also very interested in what he was teaching us so that was refreshing. His tests were extremely easy if you just paid attention in class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much in this course. We mainly focused on music from medieval times up through rock & roll, but we also explored music from other cultures like Indian and Japanese.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    All that you need to do to get a good grade is to show up to class, pay attention to what he's saying, complete the assignments, and take notes.
