    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you love music in general this class is for you. Kramer explains how music informed historical movements, not the other way around. You have to attend lecture (not a difficult thing to do, given the interesting topic), but Kramer's very flexible about due dates and deadlines. Show some interest and you'll get a good grade for sure.

    Course highlights:

    The importance of the music industry in shaping the cultural milieu surrounding the music world today. You trace its development step-by-step up into contemporary times, which is super interesting to study.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Form a personal relationship with the Professor and the TA. Show some real interest in the musical world, but don't come across as a purist -- everyone in the class knows something about music, so you'll do yourself no favors by acting like you know the most about any given topic covered. Try not to worry too much about the essays -- pick something you're passionate about and the grades will follow accordingly.
