    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course. Although it is required for all music majors, some non music majors attend the course just to understamd what makes music MUSIC! Not to mention that the Professor is so talented, knowledgeable, and encouraging.

    Course highlights:

    I learned mostly about what makes music sound pleasant to us. Why certain chords make us happy and what makes up those chords, and also covered rhythm.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into this course knowing that you will be absolutely humbled. Even if you think you know everything about music (perhaps from your piano lessons in high school), I warn you that there is much to learn. You have to go into this course with a 100% open mind, and practice!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A great class that studies the structure and essence of music. Jennifer Cameron's approach embraces creativity as well as practicality, and keeps the student engaged. I highly recommend this course for all students of music, and even those who are curious.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what cadences are, how to structure chords, and basic "rules" for part-writing, as well as how musicians break those rules for the sake of art.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it seriously, do the homework. Be there to learn, not just to get credit or you will fail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course changed my perspective on music, but also on school. Over this year together, this small group became a family. Jennifer Cameron does an incredible job teaching the theory behind music, while also seizing every opportunity to teach us about life too. She caters to all learning styles. Instead of merely thinking "outside the box", she challenges students with "What box?"

    Course highlights:

    From reading picture books to going on field-trips, this is not your average Music Theory class! We went to the opera and the pumpkin patch. The music tutors, 4 seniors, taught on Music Theory Fridays. We played games, were given group projects, and took tests. At the end of the year, Jennifer Cameron gave us a picture of the ten of us, and it's in my room. I am looking forward to the next level of Theory next year!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard, engage, and take advantage of the tutors. They are there to help you.
