Excellent! Great insights from the professor, great knowledge and passion.

It was an amazing and interesting course, i don't think I've ever enjoyed a course as much as this one. Hats off to John Covach, because, when I usually do a course on Coursera the teacher is often quite boring, but I enjoyed his dramatic feelings that he expressed during the course. Thank you.

Creative! I learnt a lot of anecdotes, and situations. Thank You!
