Evaluation Comments for Robinson, B

  1. Brian is a great guy and very quirky. However, this class is a truckload of work and furthermore, it's busy work. About 80% of the time is spent notating music by hand whether its a transcription or composition. No software is allowed. Transcriptions can take up to 3 hours and compositions can take up to 8. Assignments are due at every lecture. The material is mostly advice and not truly "facts". I would take another course with Brian, but not this one. It's too much work.
  2. I took this a while back. Brian is no longer at Middlebury, but this was an interesting course in the sense that it was very open for creativity, but still an unbelievable amount of work.
