Professor Taylor has a very unique perspective on music and music theory that I think is valuable to people of all levels of experience. The workload in the course is very manageable and class, although it can seem long sometimes, is engaging and thought-provoking. If you are looking for a traditional music class, this is not it, but it is valuable nonetheless.

How to Improvise with Prof Taylor was a fun and easy class. We only met once a week and pretty much our only assignments were solo improvisations with quick reflections. Prof Taylor is a really cool guy and exposes you to many different types of music and tries to reframe what you consider music. Each class consists of a listening portion, discussion, then class/group jams. Definitely made for those who already play an instrument, but there were also students who didn't play an instrument in the class. Would recommend if you're looking for a class with a lighter workload and are willing to get out of your comfort zone playing your instrument.
