Really appreciate Prof. Wright give us such rich content and sophisticated course. I really enjoy and love it. I am looking forward to seeing more high-level courses from Prof. Wright if there is any.
Wonderful course where Craig Wright delves into all eras of classical music and takes you along for the wonderful ride! Craig Wright is one of the best instructors I have come across! Enjoy the ride!

Great course! I learned a lot, discovered new music and the way mr. Wright presents the content is very good.

A nice guide to classical music. I find the quizes too easy and too easy to do again until you get 100%.

simply wonderful, but hated his gregorian chant bit. as well assumes you know a bit about music theory.

Wonderful course which would have been better if I could access the text outside of the US.

The content is interesting but the videos are quite long. Also, in the audit version all quizzes are blocked.
Not exactly, what I've expected, but one could learn a few new things. It is informative.

By Akash K•

This course is far more technical than what I was led to believe from the description. You don't even hear a piece of music until the fourth week, the first three being taken up with explaining octaves, notes, etc.. I was not looking to read music only listen to it.
The fourth week turned into something of a travelogue, showing pictures of places, discussing histories of cities. It was also at this point that I noticed a number of spelling and grammatical mistakes in the transcripts under the videos.
Dr. Wright appears to be an extremely intelligence, learned man. However, his speaking style did not draw me in at all. I took to reading the transcripts to do the quizzes rather than listening to him speak (and so noticed the errors).
I am unenrolling after four weeks.

Over 70 quizzes! Not hard but tedious beyond belief. Pick your best questions, condense down to five or six tests, and this course is a four or five. Looks like the prof is unorganized and doesn't do know what is key to learning in his own course with this scatter approach to quizzes.
