Comment: The worst. He expects students who may not understand music (much less modern music) to appreciate and understand the music. He demands respect from people in the class, in a way that makes him seem like really pretentious all the time. He acts like he's much better than the students, making sarcastic comments when students don't know answers to questions. Overall, a difficult professor to learn from, thank God that Ilya was an amazing GSI so I could actually learn some things about music and music technology. A more personal reason I didn't like Matthew was he would over-exaggerate the "correct" pronunciation of repertoire. Like, we get that you know the French but like it was just so pretentious of him. Take it down a notch pls.

Comment: Pretty weird class. First off I'd say that my GSI Ilya was totally awesome and helped make the class more understandable and interesting. The class itself is somewhat easy (you listen to sounds and analyze them with things like timbre, frequency, sound domain, etc.) but the tests always seemed to be more confusing then expected. I would definitely note that almost 80% of your grade is lecture, lab, and concert (you must attend 4 concerts) attendance with the other 20% or so being tests so it's pretty easy to get an A if you attend everything, even with failing the strange midterm and final.

Comment: It's an easy class. Never listened to his lectures because they are just tedious. Reviewing vocabulary in the readings and it's an easy A. GSI IIya is very chill.

Comment: Urgh.. took the class because of positive reviews in the past, but Goodheart was such a pain. Most students took the class to fulfill their breadth req and GPA boost. Refused to upload slide decks onto bCourses and made the exams lecture focused.. No written study guides either. On the other hand, GSI Ilya was very nice. Would recommend to take lab with him over the other GSIs!
