MUSC1121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Okay class. Not really into world music so some is hard to listen to. He makes you remember songs and their names for listening... it sucks especially if they sound the same. HW assignments are easy. Ethnography makes you go to a concert and write about it. It's harder if you don't have any knowledge on music because he's sort of bad at explaining.

MUSC1121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Fun class, great prof. Very nice and reasonable. Mostly watch videos and listen to music. Quiz about every week, exam every few. Not hard if you pay attention and study. One powerpoint on world music of your choice. One final project- going to world music concert and write up. Free options to do so, such as at library. Easy (and enjoyable) A.

MUSC1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Extremely good man. Very smart, and gets excited when the choir starts to sound good. He is very lenient and understanding. Sometimes doesn't get back to you, but honestly you got to hound him. He is like any normal nice guy that needs reminding. Chill with him in his office he is good for a an ear.

Marc Jaros is a nice guy and a great professor, he has his Ph.D, and his world music class is very interesting, especially if you are really into music. We went over reggae, hip hop, djing, irish folk, tuvan throat singing, the blues, as well as the cultural music from places like China and India.

Laid back. Easy assignments that don't take much time. If you miss a quiz or test he will let you make it up if you let him know ahead of time. Very nice guy!

Voice, Choir Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is very helpful. I really liked having him for voice and choir because warmups that he would have you do in voice, he would do in choir. He also is interested in you as a friend; goes out of his way sometimes just to see how you're doing.
