Legal and Business Aspects of Sound Recordings
Spring 2019 - I truly loved this class. It's definitely one of those 'you get out of it what you put into it' type of classes, because participation and homework don't matter all that much, but the content that Mr. Franzen teaches us is pretty much indespensible. You'll walk out of this class feeling like you can read and understand legal documents (and maybe even negotiate them!) The assignments are easy, just time consuming, so be prepared for that. Mr. Franzen is an easy grader and seemed to just want to see that you completed the assignment. Lectures were great and engaging, but super heavy! You definitely need to buy the course reader for this class and follow along while he teaches because getting a grip on the massive amount of content he goes over is important. Oh - and ask questions! Another really cool part of this class is that he sometimes offers internships and TA positions for his future classes! If you're interested in the music industry, law, or are a musician yourself, I couldn't recommend this class enough.
