She was an okay professor! The class was very easy, so if you want an A then take the class. She is understanding when you can't come to class, but don't make it a habit. Get the textbook used because every answer to the exam is in it.

Professor Niewczas was an excellent instructor. She is very passionate about music and is perfect for instructing classical music. She is extremely fair and goes above and beyond to assist students with issues that arise. Her knowledge on the topic is second to none and she is a sensational pianist.

She is such an amazing and helpful teacher! I learned so much in her class. I honestly thought I was going to hate this class but she made it interesting. Test are very easy, open book and notes, and they're online. One of my favorite professors for sure.

just show up to class for attendance and then when the tests come around you have 4 hours to take them. there's a lot of questions but it's all right in the book and the tests are all in order. it wouldn't hurt to take notes, her tests are based off those and if you receive 93 or higher after the first 3 tests, you're exempted from the 4th one.

Dont buy the book unless youre actually trying to learn about music. EASY A! She takes attendance with iClicker, but you can send her an email stating your car broke down, she will excuse you every time. All 4 tests online (google the answers). no other classwork. She gives extra credit for those who have the book. I earned a B+, she gave me an A!

Sweet teacher and the absolute easiest class I have ever taken. Easier than even when I took classes at CC. She takes attendance, but if you email her she excuses you. 4 tests, all online at home and very easy. Easiest A and interesting as well. TAKE!

I liked Prof. Niewczas. She made the material easy to understand with slide shows and listening examples. To get an A, all you have to do is go to class and take notes. All of the exams are online and you can use your book, the internet, and whatever notes you took to ace it. She's nice and helpful during class. Highly recommended!

MUL2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

she is the sweetest teacher you will ever have. tests are all online and you can get a B if you rely on her powerpoints, but an A if you write notes during her lecture or if you have the book. Pretty strict about attendance, lectures can be somewhat boring, but overall, really nice teacher, really passionate about her subject.

MUH3801 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is a very easy class -- however attendance is EXTREMELY important. Tests were online and open note-very easy if you put a small amount of effort in. She is forgiving with attendance if you e-mail her but you can only do it so much. Lectures can be dull...ex credit is offered too. If you get less than an A then you shouldn't be in college.

MUH3801 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very easy class...attendance is required! Lectures are very dull and most of the time was very bored in class. Tests are open note and online-does not use book. Does not put all of the info on powerpoints so you need to be at lectures. Overall easy...if you do poorly in this class then you really weren't putting ANY effort at all into it.

Do not take her for Jazz in American Society. Most of questions on test is not in the book (which she does not teach from. She rattles off very fast in class (Cannot keep up with notes) and she has a very deep Polish accent which makes it even more difficult to keep up with understanding and writing her notes. This class turned out to be the mos

Cute Professor. Very passionate about music and this may come off as arrogance but she just expects people to care as much as she does. Her Pet Peeve: talking during listening exercises.

If you can not get an A in this class then you probably should not be in college. Teacher is very nice all she expects you to do is go to class. If you go you are pretty much guaranteed an A. Class consists of 4 online tests in which the questions come straight from the notes posted on blackboard
