Pretty easy, overall.
I'd recommend this course because everyone loves music. The professor doesn't just sit there and play Beethoven all day. He plays current and old music and teaches the fundamentals of all music in general. Dr. Knoll really makes you understand that music can come to life and has meaning just as much as a movie or book.
There were many highlights from this course. One example would be that he tells you to pick a song of your choice to study throughout the year. Who doesn't like to listen to their own music? Another great experience that i had taking this course was that each week I learned something different. Specifically i learned how to play certain chords on the piano to represent a certain mood or attitude. I also learned how to compare a song to telling a story.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Pay attention to everything discussed in class. Exams will be full of content exactly from what was discussed in class usually from the week before. Study about an half hour to an hour each day and you should be fine.
