I like him! He teaches the class pretty straightforwardly. Each class we talk about a different composer. He has ~opinions~ on the Core and will share them sometimes and let us debate about women/western/what's considered art/can pop music be art, but this doesn't dominate the discussion -- usually we're talking about the readings, the music, techniques, context, etc. He is good at getting across info and allowing for interesting discussions/participation.


Readings and listening every class, can be longish but usually t taken it yet.
