Most Helpful Review
The course material for this class is extremely insteresting, but the work load is absurd for a non-major class. For the midterm alone, there is over 16 hours of listening examples to be memorized. And though she is a wealth of knowledge, the professor seems to get flustered in her lectures: jumping from one point to another and then returning to a previous idea as well as reading huge passages directly from the course reader. The course reader is also completely unorganized and therefore makes it nearly impossible to refer back to readings without difficulty. I recommend this class to people who can effectively absorb a lot of music in a short period of time.
