I don't understand why anyone would find him attractive. I thought the class was more of a music appreciation class. No discussion was involved during the whole class or what was happening during the era's of the music genre. Listen to music, Read book, Study.

Allen is great. I thorughly enjoyed his class and looked forward to going each week. He's really passionate about what he teaches and that transfers to his students. I hope to take classes from him in the future.

Alan is a great instructor. He doesn't just teach the history of Jazz, he provides some really interesting back stories on the performers! I am not a music student, but always felt included and appreciated in his class. Especially loved that the only homework was to "go out and listen to some live Jazz"!

History of rock and roll - lots of fun. You get to listen to a lot of really great music, learn some fun trivia, and connect the dots between rock sub-genres. Geared towards all students, not just those in the music program. Lots of fun class participation and a few videos.

I've taken this same class twice with two separate professors. Both are great professor's in there own respect but I certainly picked up a lot more from Jones' class than I did my previous time taking the course at another institution.

I was a music lover before taking Allen's History of Jazz class. Now I am a jazz music lover as well. Allen is a GREAT teacher, totally down to earth & super nice. His own love of music is obvious as is his experience as a musician. I would definaly recommend both this class & this teacher to anyone who wants a class they will utterly enjoy!

AWESOME TEACHER! Perfect timing, everything he told me had been only a tiny step away from me already knowing it, and I went from never having played a guitar, and three months later I was performing live easily. Totally recomend him, absolutely the best teacher I've had yet. No Txtbk.

I've taken Allen for two classes, that were the business based classes. Tax preparation and Business for the Musician. I loved him. These were seminars so they were all day and I NEVER got bored. Learned way more in one day than in a whole quarter from other professors.

One of the best teachers around. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of music, he is a fantastic musician, and he's one of the kindest people I've ever met, to boot.

I took the three class "intro" sequence with him, and I just love him. He's so in to what he's discussing, and he's really clear about his expectations. He also is in a band that plays at The Portlander. How cool is that? I highly recommend taking a class with him.
