The most difficult part of this class was sorting through the information presented, and there was a lot of reading and listening to do. Professor Keyes is a super cool person who is extremely knowledgeable about the material. The material presented in this class is very important, and enjoyable. Would rcommend this course for anyone interested in social sciences who enjoys music. Scott Linford was an awesome TA, very supportive and available to students for clarity about the material.

Shes' a poor lecturer, but the class itself isn't all that bad. The biggest irritation are her tests, which include countless names never mentioned before in class. I never really read the course reader (and I don't think anyone else did), but I'm guessing a lot of the names are from her articles. She curves the tests a bit, so as long as you have an idea of the material, you should be set. Don't memorize facts, just memorize names...and I guess some facts, but mostly names.

There are two papers (2pg. performance report and 10 pg. record review) The record review can actually be a lot of fun, granted you actually like the album you chose to review. These papers are graded easily and account for a large part of your grade.

Class itself was a drag. She basically quoted everything from the course reader. Professor Keyes is definitely an interesting figure though, she's a great musician (often singing and playing piano in class) and she's got many stories. The music we listened to was great, especially when we started getting into Motown and neo-soul.

T.A. Scott was awesome, he did everything he could to keep us up to task.

Take this class, there's not much work and you listen to music. Just memorize your names.
