Prof has changed over the years, its now Sandy Thorburn. Easy course if you know even a little about music. Without effort got a 96% on the first test... he made the next 2 harder but none the less got over 80% on all of them. No final exam: just 3 25% tests and a 25% concert review. If you're looking for a bird course take this one. Just read the text and listen to the songs and you're fine.

I wouldn't say this course is -easy-. I would say it is a lot of fun, yes, but a lot of studying about names and dates is important.
