"The course was excellent. The content was split up appropriately and covered an incredible amount of information. Not only did I brush up on all of my musical knowledge, but I learned from this course in a pedagogical perspective."
"This was the most engaging online course I've been involved in."
"It helped me to understand music and all of the components within a piece of music. By understanding how to analyze a piece of music it allows you to enhance choreographic ideas to compliment the music selection."
"Professor Anderson was an excellent instructor. He was thorough and clear with his expectations, his content, and his delivery. He went above and beyond to provide excellent feedback and in depth information to every student in a timely (incredibly fast) manner."
"Music in relation to dance is one of my deficiencies as a dancer, and therefore as a teacher. This course has helped me to be more confident with counting different patterns, including different kinds of music in my classes, and really investigating music before I begin choreography."
"I absolutely loved this course. Learning about different music applications was very interesting to me. I enjoyed the ability to create music and choreography. It helped me grow in my musicality as a choreographer."
"As a choreographer I felt like it gave me new perspectives and ways to approach the creative process. It was a very inspiring program and the professor was clear and helpful. Assignments felt purposeful and useful and the final project alone makes the entire course worthwhile. "
"I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to go through that collaborative process in this course. Feedback was thorough and incredibly insightful."
"I liked learning about music - the different types of music -- polonaise, mazurka, etc, how that music is counted (from a musicians perspective) as well as the choreographic tool of using an invention to structure your movement. I have come away with a much clearer understanding of written music and I am looking forward to implementing that understanding in my teaching."
