Really appreciate Prof. Wright give us such rich content and sophisticated course. I really enjoy and love it. I am looking forward to seeing more high-level courses from Prof. Wright if there is any.

This course has a lot of information. It is well organized, and so many music illustrations. I am really enjoying this course, and will freely recommend it to anyone interested in classical music.

The content is interesting but the videos are quite long. Also, in the audit version all quizzes are blocked.

Not exactly, what I've expected, but one could learn a few new things. It is informative.

What I've watched wasn't as what I expected.
I would give it 2 out of 5 as addressing my needs.

Interesting course but it had way too many quizzes and was extremely tedious. I would not recommend this course to anyone!

The course looks a lot like advertisement of a textbook. I don't have anything against ads, but ads are not very suitable for teaching.

I was disappointed in the low level of this course, which I did not expect from Yale University. It is full of unnuanced generalizations, clichés and oversimplifications. Paired with dr. Wright's slow manner of speech and his blatant repetition of key words, I felt like I was in elementary school again!
The details are also not always accurate. For example, in the part about Handel, dr Wright says that his operas are about classical history and myth. In fact, more than a third have settings in the middle ages. I could accept this as a generalization, albeit a large and unnecessary one. But he also says that the title character from the opera Rinaldo is some figure of classical mythology, which is factually wrong. In the context of the video it was not important at all. Yet if it's deliberate, it is in my opinion highly inappropiate to 'change' facts to fit your generalization. And if it's accidental, it's sloppy. In either case, it seems below the standard of Yale.
And that was not the only inaccuracy, but I won't make this review any longer.
In short, my problems with this course are probably due to my wrong expectations. It is probably a great course for the larger public, but the level is below academic.

Class was boring and the professor wasn't inspired nor inspiring.
