Writing about Music
Winter 2018 - Eidsheim and this class are one of a kind. I can say for certain that I would absolutely take this class again if I had the opportunity, especially since I had a helpful TA that made her lectures clearer. Everything in this class- the syllabus, daily assignments (both in class and at home) and readings, are online on a shared Google Drive that they make for you when the class starts. This is honestly super confusing at first (she makes you copy documents from one drive to another and format them with specific titles), but after about a week the Google Drive becomes your best friend and super easy to access. DISCLAIMER: if you aren't pretty passionate about music or love listening to music, this class may seem super repetitive and may feel like busy work. There are no tests, just lots of reading and writing that comprise pretty much all your homework and in class stuff. Eidsheim is super accessible with office hours and wants to help you truly understand the assignments and reading. This class is totally a hidden gem, and a great way to knock out both a music history class and your Writing II. Easy A or B if you are consistent with your homework and if you go to class and communicate with your TA.
