Professor Su is clearly an experienced musician and composer. She does, however, clearly have a preference for composing and sometimes can emphasize more on that. She also does stray from the topic often, and can get very philosophical, but nevertheless she is a wonderful and sweet Professor. It is a relatively easy and reasonably paced course - particularly if you know a bit of music theory prior. However, if you have no background in music, that is okay too.

Su loves music and definitely knows her stuff, but her lectures stray from the topic almost all the time. I personally felt like the TA knew how to explain things better than she did. If I were completely new to music theory, I would have struggled in the class. The class is low effort and pretty easy to get a good grade in though, so if you’re looking for a relatively easy art credit to get but also learn something from it, this would be it

I am so glad that I took this course in the first semester in my freshman year as it greatly altered my perception of music, and influenced me, a stem-oriented person, to pursue the music major as I am doing today. In this class, Su takes you through different perspectives of the definition of music and art. The first composition is undoubtedly music, while further projects stretch one's perception of music to its absolute extreme. While taking the course, the projects may seem confusing and sometimes too abstract, but in the end one will have a much broader, and much more openminded perspective towards music as an artform. (TLDR: trust the process)
