Comment: the exams are almost completely based on lectures, having the book didn't help as much as i thought it would. for me, it was difficult to write the papers because its difficult to write 2 pages about one piece of music. don't ditch the lectures.

Comment: Amazing professor! You definitely want to take a class from him. He's really animated and dances around to the music he plays. AND he has a South African accent, so everything he says is inherently more interesting. Even if you don't have any musical background, this class is fairly straightforward, and you will come away from it learning a lot.

Comment: Great professor! Not hard for non-music people like myself! I loved the class and even went on to take more music courses! Very easy course but was very fun and the professor was very enthusiastic and taught very well. Exams are well catered to the material.

Comment: His lectures were fun to attend and he treats his students well. The exams were not too demanding because he covers everything that will be on the exam. Dot/dot/dot/dash.

Comment: Awesome laid back class that's an easy A. Davies was extremely enthusiastic about the material in his lectures which helped a lot. There's only 3 hours of class a week for Music 27 (I have no idea why its 4 units) but its good for GPA boosting. Lectures were fun. Tests were easy with extra credit possible. 2 Papers in the class which were relatively easy to write. No other assignments other than some simple GSI assigned homework.

Comment: Really nice professor, but I hated the material covered in the course. I think it was his first semester here? Idk, I just felt like the material had nothing to do with anything involving "thinking about music." It was more like an "introduction to various musics of the world..." Not what I expected. Whatever -_-
