This course would have been good if there where 20 people in the class not 50. There is not any room to really talk about music because of this. I felt like there wasn't much engagement with the material and days blended into each other. However, I you are looking for an easy class to fill out an art requirement look no further.

This class was very much out of my comfort zone but the professor made all the material digestible and easy to understand. I loved the listening projects and the concert reports, because it made the learning very personal.

There was very little course work for this class and occasional readings. However, the exams were difficult because you needed to memorize a lot of random songs. Professor Hamberlin was very enthusiastic about the class.

Honestly a great, easy class. If you need a filler this is the class for you. There were 2 hw "quizzes" every week with a listening response that take no more than a half hour each. You have to do a little bit of studying for the exams, but those aren't terrible. Good class if you need a filler.

This course feels like a missed opportunity - it could compare the musical traditions of a variety of areas across the world. Instead, it follows a very western-centric worldview that does not add much value to my life. The only redeeming quality of the class is listening to some interesting pieces, but honestly not worth taking overall.

Professor Hamberlin's class is really easy, and the assignments aren't too bad. Just remember to stay on top of the assignments, and go to class for the exams. Its a good filler class, but do not ignore the work.
