Music Documentary in History and Practice
Winter 2021 - Professor Leaf is really awesome! It's clear that he cares a lot about his students and the class content. You are expected to watch several music documentaries each week which can kind of become a drag, but the accompanying written assignments are super easy as long as you paid attention to the films. Grading in this class is lenient, so as long as you answer the homework questions thoroughly, you should do very well. There are no tests in this class, just a major report and a final project. Overall, I would highly recommend taking this class. Just be sure to spread watching the documentaries out each week (unless binge-watching is your thing). Is the workload somewhat tedious? Yes. But is it easy and interesting? Also yes.
