    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires a lot of hours spent studying outside of class, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you are truly passionate about music.

    Course highlights:

    As a long time musician I found it very gratifying to learn the mechanics of musical elements such as scales, keys and transposition.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is really great to have a friend in this class that you can go to when you are confused, however, it is such a small class, I doubt you will have trouble going to your classmates for help.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend film production because it really allows you to explore who you are creatively and discover new parts of yourself that you never would have known about.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how about editing, camera angles, different shots, lighting aspects of filming, how to direct, and overall just how to let your personality shine through your work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go for it, if you think your shots are out there then do them. Being in film production is about making risky choices and going outside of the lines. Make choices that are different and don't always stick to whats safest.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Music theory knowledge extends to other areas of study as well, and helps with more mechanical thinking as well as an intro to why music is what it is.

    Course highlights:

    This course really helped me understand why music works, and why certain chord progressions work better than others. Music is a universal language, so I enjoyed understanding that language a bit better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to ask for help. Music theory is heavily dependent upon mechanical thinking with an openness to creativity within parameters that have been in place for centuries.
