LOVE ROG RIDEOUT. He is the absolute man. Watch videos all day, the tests are pretty easy, let a student administer the last exam, final 16 page paper that he doesnt even read. You get an A for passing it in. Has everoyne over his house for pizza and beer. Best class ever.

Great Professor. One of my favorites. I'm really sad that he's not going to be teaching Music in Film anymore, but glad that I got to take it. He teaches without you knowing that your learning. I wish that every class could be like this. He even invited the whole class to his house at the end of the year. I'm gonna miss him.

Very relaxed class but you still learn a lot, without even really realizing it. Very cool, not too stressful, and he's super accommodating: you will do fine if you want to.

He knows exactly what he's talking about, presents information clearly in both notes and lectures. Although there is a 20 page paper in the Honors course, the class is definitely worth taking.

Music in Film Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is interesting and pretty easy (you must show up and take decent notes, but reading is minimal and optional). Rideout, though, is the real reason to take this class. I doubt there is any teacher like him at UMass. Very articulate, worldly, and hilariously bitter about his ex-wife.

Music in Film is a great class! He knows what he is talking about and is willing to help anyone. Tests are difficult if you don't study enough, but he wants everyone to do well.
