Students find Professor Whiting to be a genuine 'nice guy' who brought that feeling into the classroom. Several students comment that too many pieces to learn and memorize impacted their ability to study any single thing closely. Students again emphasize (as they do every year) that this course is not easy and perhaps should not be taken without a background in music regardless of what the course calendar says.

Most students were pleased with this course and with the classroom style of Professor Treloar. Some non-music students expressed concern that they were deceived by the course calendar which states no musical background is required and felt disadvantaged by students who did have such background. Students caught in this position emphasize that the course is naturally more difficult for those without musical foundation, even if it is technically accessible to them.

For the most part students enjoyed Professor Sanger as an instructor but they had various suggestions regarding course structure. Some felt the essay component was too heavily weighted (40%) while others were unclear as to grading expectations. A few students felt that two-hour lectures were excessive without a break and quite a number of students note that multi-media course material on short term loan in the library was inconvenient. Still, on the whole, students were satisfied with the course.
