    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    For a usually difficult course, Mr. Hamilton makes learning music history much easier. He introduces each era with historical background and significance and delves into the most influential composers, as well as their well-notes works. I feel that by the end of this course, I would have good foundational knowledge on each and every era, as well as their transitions. I also feel very confident and prepared about taking the music comprehension test for New York and for my school in order to graduate. As a required course, it was easy to digest and apply when it came to listening comprehension quizzes and identifying key components to the pieces.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the historical backgrounds of each musical era, the transitions that came historically and musically, and the important contributions that were made during those time periods. I particularly like the odd facts and other tidbits brought up in class, because it helps me remember important things more easily. For example, did you know that trio sonatas are played by FOUR people? It's just that two of the performers are soloists and the other two make up the basso continuo, which is the harpsichord and an instrument with a low timbre, like a cello. The basso continuo shares a grand staff with figured bass to indicate the chord progression throughout the piece. This was established during the Baroque period, and I retained the information better because of that one odd fact.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just stay focused, be organized, and take down the notes. Other than that, have fun! This class is pretty chill, so there's nothing to really stress about. If you do find yourself struggling, you can always ask Mr.Hamilton questions after class. Also, make sure to do the homework and study for the quizzes. It's not a lot of work, so at least complete them all in a timely manner.
