Kate's a great instructor. If you have to take Music Hum (which you do) I couldn't think of anyone better to take it with.
She's got a great temperament, is very knowledgeable about the material, and is clearly very passionate about Music in general.
While I am a science major, I found this class very enjoyable and I really learned a lot. You don't spend too much time on any one genre so even if a style of music is not your thing, you're quickly onto the next section.
I'm glad I ended up in Kate's section. The course is graded on the following...
2 concert reports due at the end of term.
5 small quizzes she makes it super easy to prepare for
4 short written assignments (1-2 pages)
It probably sounds like a lot, but it's really not. The papers are really short and only require a flick through your class notes and the
text book to do well.
Show up, do the work and you'll do great!
