"Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Lectures are long"

You either love or hate him. Study the material and pass the tests. No homework, some extra credit.

LBST 1103 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Respected by students" "Clear grading criteria" "Tests are tough"

Would not recommend taking him for an LBST credit. I really enjoyed the class. He's a funny, knowledgeable guy, and I really learned a lot of interesting things. This semester, he assigned three tests and a final essay. The essay had to be less than two pages, and you either got a 0 or a 100. STUDY FOR THE TESTS, THEY'RE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT.

LBST 1103-602 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A
"Skip class? You won't pass."

He is a great professor! If you want to do well though you just have to go to class and take good notes. Buying the textbook wasn't required or you could buy any version of it. He also offers lots of extra credit!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Hilarious"

He expects u to work for the A, and rewards u with an easy final. Book is a must, and take notes in class. Loads of extra credit (movie summaries and PowerPoints on your favorite band). Made a B by showing up and studying book prior to each exam.

He is a great one on one and comedic! ,, But he did make the course harder than it needed to be. He never responded to my emails. (I only sent 3 the whole semester regarding help)

Have you ever heard of a nice jerk? well that's exactly what he is. The class was super hard and everyone had c's and d's but the final was only 7 easy questions. Now everyone has b's and a's. He gives a lot of extra credit.

You know those restaurants where you go in and the servers make fun of you and whatnot, but the service itself is actually great? (i.e. Dick's Last Resort in MB, SC). Treat this class like that. He's going to insult you, albeit in good humor, but he's actually a helpful teacher. No work bar exams, but study and take extra credit (he offers A LOT).

At times funny, but mostly just cocky. Class is much harder then it should be and there's only 4 grades for the whole semester.

LBST Music Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is not fun. I was interested in music prior to taking this course but am regretting it. There are only 4 tests that make up your grade so bomb two and your done, which is also not until after the drop period has passed. He is rude to students and doesn't respond to emails which becomes a problem when you only see him once a week.

this guy is INSANE. Class is somewhat interesting because he is so mean, but don't think you will walk out with an easy A. You will work ridiculously hard for a passing grade. Grade comprised of 4 exams(students sit every other seat on exam day, extras have to sit on the floor). NOT an easy liberal studies course. would NOT recommend.

The tests can be tricky if you don't read but they are very passable. As well he issues A LOT of extra credit. Enough to pull your grade a good ways. But, it's not all about the grades. He a fairly entertaining professor who conveys the material well and helps those who want help, albeit sarcastic help its still help.

This is a great professor. He is intelligent and expects you to bring your A game. If you don't, he will flunk your ass. Those are his words, not mine. Prepare to enjoy and understand classical music in a way you never dreamed. A entertaining expert in the field.

He is an awesome and funny teacher. If you just go to class everyday and pay attention, it's an easy A. He has a couple extra credit things you can do if you struggle.

Professor Cloer can be pretty intimidating, but he knows his information and he is a hilarious professor. Read the book and study the material the way he suggests and you'll pass. Not an easy A by any means, but passable.

Dr. Cloer is a great professor! He understands most of us are in this class because we have to be. He makes the class fun for us non-music people. But he still expects you to do the work, it is a college class after all! You won't do well if you skip class and don't put any effort into it. Study the material and you will get an A.

MUSIC Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The class is hard, and it will never get easier. However there is a lot of history of music compressed in this course. I think Cloer made it as easy as possible for us. He has got a good sense of humor and he can see if you really try hard to do good in his course. Be sure to ask- he will help.

Funniest class ever. Expect a lot of middle fingers. If you are easily offended keep your mouth shut. If you can take a joke, you will love this class. Listen to the music a lot before the tests. To get an A, you have to read the book in order to answer some rather obscure questions. Listen to the music.

Dr. Cloer stinks! The class is too hard for no reason. He teaches as if everyone is musically inclined, which I definitely am not. The only reason I received a B is because of the curves on the test and two extra credit assignments. DO NOT TAKE if you are not musically inclined or interested in the history of music.

He ignores emails and then brags about it in class as if its funny. Way to hard of a class for an LBST. He assigned 50 words of vocab to study for the final and only used 10 of them on the test.

Class is way too hard and he never responds to emails. This class is not friendly to people who don't think creatively and have a passion and history in music
