His lectures are helpful but he jumps around all over the place with the slides. He's passionate about what he teaches so it makes them interesting. Also, if you get a good TA then the tests will be easy. As for the book, it's not necessary. I still aced the tests and didn't buy it.

Easy A, as long as you go to lecture & take notes, review a little bit before tests as you are expected to do in middle school.. didn't even buy the reader and I was absent for about 4 lectures, but he posted slides online, though I would recommend going to lecture, as long as you do that you do not even need to review his slides.

I heard MUS 11 was a easy A class, but I am sure it is not easy for this quarter, even though he has added a 5% extra credit assignment. 30% of the final grade will be calculated by the first midterm, and there is lots of people who did bad. Textbook is useless but we have to go to class for "Yiddle With His Fiddle". It seems Myedu is not reliable.

After taking his first midterm, I can tell you it is not easy at all. 30% for 2 midterms and 1 final, 10% for session.Midterms are very easy for you to loose points because it is heavily based on short questions, and it is so easy to loose 20/85 on the midterm. 70s for C, 80s for B, 90s for A. If you calculate it, you can basically just end up a B.

Like the person said below, i advise that you don't purchase the reader. His lectures were generally entertaining. I was lucky to have such an awesome TA, which was definitely helpful!

Very nice man, but I don't think he's the best professor to teach a music theory class. I think I was able to pull off A-~B+ only because I already knew a lot of music theory. If you don't know anything about music theory, you don't want to take this class. Don't buy the reader; it's expensive and useless.

Fun little professor who can keep you entertained, but his lectures are all over the place. It's an easy class if you attend lecture, but he speaks softly so it can be a little hard to understand. Attendance to discussion is mandatory. Don't buy the reader--the test is structured around lectures.

The best little old professor ever! I absolutely love this little old man, he kinda reminds me of the little boy Russel from the movie Up but the old man version. He's super friendly and his class is so easy. If you want an A, you'll definitely get it as long as you go to lecture.

The professor lectures softly, making it difficult to pay attention/ stay awake. He is knowledgeable, but his lectures are not structured or organized. Don't buy the book: it's filled with information he doesn't test on.

Easy A class, but kind of boring. Save your money and don't buy the textbook, it's useless.

Professor Zelickman is great. He's a cute portly old man who is very enthusiastic about what he does. Easy class. As long as you go to class and you are awake for class, you will get an A. He teaches everything you need to know in class. Tests are easy IDs and short answer.

The class was pretty easy. Just take notes during lecture and go to section. I had sarah as my TA and she would give out handouts with all the info you need to know on the midterms and finals. just memorize all the information. his tests are fill in the blank, T/F, and short answers. He is really nice but his lectures are a bit disorganized.

Professor is super friendly and fun. He's really into what he's teaching. He jumps around a lot when he lectures but the TAs definitely help you with everything that will be on the midterm. TAKE HIM! EASY A!

Dont listen to these people giving him negative comments. He is thefairest professor you could ask for. He tells you everything that will be on the Midterm the lecture before and all you have to do is memorize terms and definitions. Things got rough winter quarter cause some idiot stole the midterm (obviously cause disorganization) TAKE HIM!!

One of the easiest A's I've gotten at UCSD. He can be a little difficult to understand at times (seems to stutter or jumble up his words when he gets excited over a subject). Go to lecture everyday and know your terms and you'll be fine. There's a reader for the class, but I never used it.

Easy class. The professor is really nice and quirky... always let us out early. He actually made the subject interesting. The tests were easy and graded easy too. Don't buy the reader... its useless but go to lecture this professor makes it totally worth it.

Such a great class! This class is super easy but very entertaining and fun. I learned so much about Klezmer music that I wouldn't have known otherwise. Best TA ever too.....great class!

Super easy class! Go to section, especially before the exam, TA's will give you everything that will be on exam! The professor is really a cute old man that loves teaching music.
