This class was so much more than what the course description made it out to be. Every class we spoke not only about the subject - folk music - but how the issues around it related to every day life and how we can use those things in our own lives. Bruce is a stunning professor. The topics he brings up are really interesting. He's extraordinary!

I didn't have a lot of interest in the subject at first, I just wanted to take a class with Bruce. Wow was it worth it! He's an incredible prof and now I love the blues! Any of his classes are well worth the wait and work!

Terrific class. Terrific professor. I wish he'd play his guitar more in class because he's awesome at it! But best of all is jest hearing him teach. Bruce is great!

A really really good class. The lectures are incredibly stimulating. The quizzes are pretty tricky. The midterm exam was less so because you got to express more of your opinion. It is really interesting to see how Bruce lectures... it's a whole different experience from any other professor I've ever had... and that's GOOD!!!!

Wow! This has been the coolest, AND most informative class I've ever taken at UM! Dr. Conforth is amazing in how he brings this subject to life! I never thought I'd EVER be talking about "subcultural theory" but he just made the whole topic so incredibly interesting. The best there is!

Simply a stunning semester. It's no wonder that he won the Golden Apple. This has been a terrific semester. Bruce is engaging, informative, challenging, interesting, funny... everything you'd want in a professor and more. He's simply the best there is.

This has been the most stimulating and interesting course I've ever taken. We've learned all about the Beats in the 50s and the Hippies in the 60s and Bruce added such amazing context because he knew most of these guys. It's been absolutely remarkable to learn about something this interesting in such a first-hand way. Bruce is awesome!

Entertaining to listen to, but the course has very little structure so it's hard to take anything away from it. The times that he does draw large conclusions, they're really without nuance and mostly uninteresting. That said, he's a great guy.

He's a really great professor. I wish I had paid more attention during lectures! It's an easy A, but make sure you still do the work (really minimal, just studying for like three quizzes. and two exams with review guides) and don't just go in with that mindset!

Totally awesome. A radical professor! Gives you 150% of himself all the time. What a refreshing thing to have: a professor who cares more about teaching and his students than he does his own ego. The guy is amazing! Take anything he teaches!

Incredibly stimulating. Bruce talks about things that other professors won't or can't and his class is awesome. You'll learn more than you ever dreamed.

Dr. Conforth has more passion and enthusiasm for teaching and his students than any twenty UM professors put together! His class was truly unique and extremely memorable. I never wanted to miss it and sometimes I only got up to go to his class. He's absolutely amazing!

I've never had a class as stimulating as this one, and it's a large lecture even! Bruce really makes the subject come alive with his personal anecdotes and great insights. He's just really accommodating at helping you really understand the subject. There's a reason why he has such a great reputation. It's simple. Here's FANTASTIC!

This guy is the best teacher at the University of Michigan - period! He goes out of his way to make sure you "get it" (as he says), but he really doesn't have to because his lectures and classes are always so interesting that you get it anyway! Te thing he teaches... you won't ever regret it!

This was the most provocative, informative, stimulating class I ever took at UM and it was all because of Bruce. He is an astonishing professor and scholar. He cares so deeply about you as a person and he makes you question everything around you so you can come to a richer understanding of culture and life. TAKE HIS CLASSES!

One of those life-changing professors who knows and loves what he's doing. He can teach you about his subject and inspire you to change your life all at once. Funny, brilliant without being condescending, and friends with almost everyone he teaches about. Take his class--you will not regret it.
