Quarter: Fall 2019
Grade: A
Dec. 3, 2019

Your mileage with this class will vary depending on your knowledge of music theory and/or film going in and your attention span. Lectures were interesting if you summarized the content in notes, and the professor was nice enough to let us have a break halfway through the 2-hour lectures, but overall, in the moment I found myself tuning out more often than not. This is better listed as a film class, as I was hoping to discuss the music itself on an analytical/music theory level, not so much the film as a whole and how the music adds to it.

NOTE: ACTUAL CLASS TAKEN: MH5

Holley somehow misses so many iconic rock and roll bands in the syllabus and lectures of this class. It is called HISTORY OF ROCK AND ROLL yet we have artists like Eminem, Queen Latifah, and Dixie Chicks on this syllabus. Not to mention the “KING OF POP” Michael Jackson. Somehow the King of Rock n Roll, Elvis, only has one song on the syllabus.
On the day entitled HEAVY METAL, she left out the so-called godfathers of Heavy Metal, Black Sabbath. Also she grossly misclassifies many rock and metal bands, almost so much it is offensive to a musician as myself.
The way she explains instruments and music is somewhat insulting to me, there was an observation once “the bass drum and snare drum sound different.” No way, that’s why they’re different drums.
I showed the syllabus to my guitar teacher, a distinguished longtime professor at Sonoma State University, and he was insulted by the music choice. How do you teach a class on rock and roll and not mention AC/DC he said, the greatest rock and roll band of all time. She forgot to mention the best selling hard rock album ever, Back in Black he said.
For hair/glam rock and metal, she forgets to mention Guns N Roses and Motley Crue? The two bands that define hair metal. In the LA Scene. How about Megadeth, Aerosmith (for funk), Journey, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Def Leppard, Pantera? Also, she said Randy Rhoads was from Sabbath; he was never in Sabbath. He founded Quiet Riot.
We focused so much on gay music and culture, but there is a class called LGBTQ Music and Culture. If that’s what I wanted to learn, I would’ve taken that class. Insulted that we didn’t cover actual rock for more than about 3 weeks of the quarter.
Overall I am very very very disappointed in the class. The description on CCLE is very misleading.

Her class is very interesting and addressed overlooked concepts of film and music. Her homework consisted of watching weekly movies and one overall essay. Her lectures were a little long but we watched clips in class. Overall, the information was presented in an interesting and clear way that was also interactive and entertaining.

I am a first year and took Music History 7 with prof Replogle fall 2013. She's elegant, knowledgeable, and concerned. Her lecture is very organized and interesting. I learnt a lot about film and film music industry that can be told from nowhere else! She doesn't put her slides online, but you can view them during her office hour. If you don't understand something, just go asking her and she'll explain it to you very well. Definitely take the class!

50% paper (throughout the quarter)
20% midterm (MC)
30% final (MC+essay)

I took MH 7 with Replogle and thought it was a great class. It was an easy A if you did all of the exam study guides (meaning you went to lecture or had someone give you notes/fill you in). She doesn't post her Powerpoint slides online so keeping up with her lectures was super important. I really enjoyed this class. It was basically watching movies (on your own time) and then going to lecture where she talked about scenes and how the music adds to the film.

There are 3 short exams, and we didn't have a final (though I guess you can say 2 of the short exams are midterms and the last exams is the "final") but they were all pretty easy if you studied, even just a little bit.
The class consists of a paper that you work on throughout the quarter. My T.A graded pretty easily and I ended up getting an A on the paper without really trying or stressing out about it.
I didn't watch half of the movies but still did well by going to lecture or having someone from the class explain what happened in lecture to me for the lectures I missed.

It was a great class and sort of an easy A. I definitely recommend it!
