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!

I'm leaving one star for the small improvement suggestion I wrote on the ending survey, but it's not really that of a big deal, so I highly recommend this course! It's great, as someone who loves classical music a lot but has very limited knowledge about it, this is very helpful! Many more we can find to explore the music we enjoy.

I think it is a nice course, which helps you appreciate classical music more. Somehow, I feel the explanation of classical music up to Beethoven is stronger or at least less boring than the explanation after Beethoven period. nevertheless a fantastic work and I really enjoyed it. Thank you Professor Wright.

Es muy completo y en general las clases son amenas
Me permitió aprender mucho y reforzar conceptos
solamente no fueron muy claros los conceptos técnicos, octavas, semitonos, etc. para quien no sabe estos aspectos de la música es dificil comprenderlos.
muchas gracias por permitirme esta aproximación

The course material was great. The transcriptions were awful ... I quick review by the instructor would've caught easy and copious errors. Someone seriously needs to spell / content check them for error. That took a quality Yale course down a few notches for me. I expected better.
By Hannah C•
I really appreciated the clear division of all periods. It made sense and was enjoyable to take. My only complaint is that it isn't more in depth. It is very good for an introductory course and has increased my desire to keep researching this subject. Thank you Professor Wright.

Me gustó mucho el curso. Me pareció que hace una buena introducción a teoría de la música y luego a su historia. Es mucha información y por momentos se hace difícil recordar todos los conceptos que se han ido explicando, pero sirve para tener un primer acercamiento a la temática.

A well designed, informative, course with an excellent teacher. One comment: when playing musical examples, it would have been helpful if the instructor's comments had been put in text on the screen rather than having the instructor talk over the music.

O curso é esplêndido, o professor fala detalhadamente sobre todo o processo da evolução da música, e os exemplos são muito bem postos. Infelizmente só não dou 5 estrelas pois o link para a leitura acompanhada não está atualizado, e eu não pude acessá-lo

Really great introductory course! I wish it could have been a bit longer on the modern and postmodern periods - they felt relatively short compared to the other ones...maybe introduce more artists and let us listen to more pieces?

Excellent panorama of classical music.
I specially like the lesson about Mozart and the "Dark side of Mozart", and what was said about the social evolution of the musicians.
A great course. Perfect for beginner. I really enjoyed the journey of Western classical music from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Thank you very much. I learned a lot.
By Carlos C R H•
Muy buen curso, aunque, en mi opinión, sería bueno incluir más preguntas con audio en los quizes para evaluar más la parte auditiva y no tanto el recordar datos.
By Dana C•
Very informative and helpful in learning how to listen to classical music as well as what to listen for when you are attending a musical concert.
By David R•
A great course. The Wikimedia Commons material was a little low tech and not always connected to the lecture (e.g., the diagram on the ear).

no puedo ver el curso en idioma castellano. Ni siquiera en subtitulos. como se puede arreglar porque no veo ninguna opcion
By Titus J M•
now I have a new view and better dimension of classical music. thanks to Yale University, thanks to coursera.
By Leen R•
Great course! I learned a lot, discovered new music and the way mr. Wright presents the content is very good.
By Kimberley J•
A nice guide to classical music. I find the quizes too easy and too easy to do again until you get 100%.
By Yaakov H•
simply wonderful, but hated his gregorian chant bit. as well assumes you know a bit about music theory.
By Ruan P•
Wonderful course which would have been better if I could access the text outside of the US.

Nice! I am enjoying it!!
explained in simple language, so it is easy to understand.
By Samya K•
Slightly boring at some times but overall engaging and extremely diverse and fun.
By Joy S•
Super long. Super informative. Loved the Beethoven week.
By Jeff B•
Great course! I wish I had taken it 50 years ago!
By Juan C A E•
It was really fun until the last two weeks.
