One of the greatest courses I ever followed!\n\nInteresting, documentary, not even one minute boring, very well organized and easy to follow.\n\nMusic is part of our history.

Bill Ferris is a wealth of knowledge and experience - I only regret missing out on the classroom dynamic of a Ferris-led discussion of Southern arts, particularly the Blues.

I got quite discouraged with this course and have not completed it. I think I need the discussion and interaction of the forums and quiz scores to make the learning real. It looks like you have to pay to get quiz scores. The videos present the information clearly and well, but I could get the information from other sources. I was puzzled at the lack of recent discussions and that only one of the 13 moderators/staff had ever contributed to the forums and nothing in the last couple of months, even though there are recent 5-star reviews.

It was interesting to a point, but there was no application of the knowledge gained. It was merely a regurgitation of facts.
