The lectures were very short and to the point, which I enjoyed. The content is interesting, but I disliked the textbook, because it sometimes felt like the definitions were vague. I feel like this demonstrated when I saw people using the same word 3 different ways. I loved that we got to analyze songs of our choosing. Sometimes you do need to read/watch supplemental material. I wish it was just included in the lectures since they were so short.
You learn about instruments, musicals, some basic music jargon, different cultures' music
Professor Hodges was a great lecturer who was passionate, making her engaging.
This class is so easy, if you need a humanity, TAKE IT!

Easiest class taken at UF. For the essays in which you write about a song, just pick one you like and have fun with it, you'll get a 100 if you write basically anything.

I absolutely loved this class, but I love music history. I decided to minor in music history because of this class. I would definitely take it again.
There are weekly readings and quizzes, as well as discussion boards and supplemental videos. These were all really interesting to me because I love the subject. There were four essays that were each for analyzing a song of your choice, and those were a lot of fun and very easy.
Professor Hodges was very nice and willing to answer questions.
Do the readings or you will struggle on the quizzes.

Very easy gen-ed credit, but the class is boring unless you really like music.
Not really, unless you're a music major
Very nice guy, probably one of the nicest I've encountered at UF
Write your essays on songs you enjoy, but are also easy to write about. Write about instrumental songs, not songs with lyrics.

Easy Gen-Ed Humanities credit, but very boring unless you like music. His lectures were not very useful for the discussions or quizzes, as most of the content could be found in PowerPoints or the textbook. Some questions on the quizzes came from left field, but they were not extremely difficult either.
Lectures follow every chapter of the textbook. No need to read before attending lecture. Weekly quizzes and discussion posts, some Unit Exams and Listening Assignments for extra credit. All assignments were open book and manageable, but sometimes it can take about an hour to complete the lengthier exams.
Easy class with this professor. Easy to get an A if you at least go to lecture and have a general idea of what’s going on during that week.
