Matthew Taylor is very enthusiastic about his material however it wasn't the best course. The course was very slow sometimes and being a musician, there weren't many other musicians in the course just people who wanted to get the easy credit. This made it hard at times to get anything done and people just messed around all class. One homework assignment due a week which you could basically submit anything.

Music Theory with Matthew Taylor was the easiest A (almost a 100% in the class). He does not seem to have a basic structure in his lectures and does not really build up from the previous lectures. He canceled class quite a few times, and attendance wasn't mandatory. There was only about one assignment or two per month, and the final project was just another easy 100.

It's hard to speak highly of this class. It is certainly good for students with little to no musical knowledge but I think it should be appropriately advertised as an extremely fundamental class. Additionally, I felt that there wasn't a great deal of care extended to the class by Professor Taylor. I understand that it is a very low level music class and easy to overlook but it's concerning that almost all of his grading was done by the TA and he chose not to hold an alarming number of classes. If my estimation is correct, I think we did not meet in person for an entire 1/3 of the scheduled classes. In my opinion this is unacceptable. Especially if the class is one that covers basic concepts that will be built upon in the future, it is ridiculous that we would only meet in person for 24 classes when we're supposed to have 36. That is disappointing.
