Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The course is required so it doesn't really matter whether or not I recommend it. But if you get easily bored, I HIGHLY recommend to study everyday. It'll be easier when a test comes around. Take advantage of all the try-hards at stuy and search up Final Study Guides and review because you WILL regret it if you don't prepare for the final. I got a 94 so it's fine. I had a bad time in the class bc I hate music app and the guy next to me stank so bad but if you like history and/or music, you'll enjoy her class. And also, smile at Mrs. Shamazov. Think about how she feels talking about the most boring subject in the world with as much enthusiasm as a twelve year old talking about mine craft to a bunch of half-dead teenagers who don't give a Bach about who invented the symphony. If you make a friend out of whoever sits next to you, the class might be bearable. You can both make fun of Beethoven's hair and study for the Bio test you have next pd together. (Shout out to my wifey Sarah) Good luck!
I really liked the Romantic and the Baroque period. The castrated singers were...interesting. I love it whenever Mrs. Shamazov used to tell us about the lives of the musicians. Oh! That's really important. She likes to ask on tests about the musicians' lives of the era you are being tested on. Have fun and don't stress. I recommend just studying a half hour or so every weekend.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Actually take notes when she's speaking. This may seem foreign but listen to the musicians' lives and take notes about them. Also make use of the study guides she gives out. If you need help do't be afraid to ask.
