HERE IS WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING THAT HAVE TAKEN THIS EXCITING COURSE:
"I LOVE THIS COURSE!!! I have delved deeper into music in movies than I ever have before. I have explored some music in movies
before but never like I have in this course.”
"I like how this class is interactive and we can ask or discuss things about music we listen to. I enjoy how the assignments aren't hard but helps you learn and understand the lesson just as well. This class isn't stressful in that way and is overall fun.”
"I have found it changing how I look at a movie and seeing why a composer wrote that sound for the scene. It is cool to me also
to know the some film composers and what movies they have written songs for.”
"I really like this course because it was fun, interesting, and knowledgeable. I really enjoy watching parts from different movies and listening to the music within the film. I really enjoy taking this course because it isn't like any other classes I have ever taken before.”
"This course has given me a challenge. I have a new found love of really going in and searching for those small details. My Dad now hates watching movies with me because I will sit there and breakdown the movie score as if it was a listening activity.”
"What I like about this course is how this class covers both of my interests, music and movies. It's interesting to see how music has such a huge impact on movies and how it can make a scene better. This course benefited me by giving me an insight into how important music in movies are and how they work together. This helped and will forever help me experience a certain scene in a movie and will help make me feel the emotions that the scene gives off.”
