The unit structure and assessment outline must have changed from previous years because this unit was definitely not as easy and enjoyable as past reviews made it seem. Some of the content felt way above the knowledge requirement of first year students or students with no musical knowledge or background. The lectures were PAINFULLY long (literally averaging at around 2 hours) and some the assessments felt VERY unreasonable. I will say though that professor Ashley is great, his enthusiasm and love for the subject and the fact that he is very approachable made the unit bearable. It is possible to get a HD if you can give it your best shot at every assessment and if you can surround yourself with others who are also willing to try.

Very cool unit! You get a chance to watch & listen to many live performances :) Contents are easy to follow, final exam is very easy if you attend/watch the lectures. The final tutorial is for exam preparation, so make sure you attend that one! Many thanks to the unit coordinator - Ashley!

This was a highly enjoyable and easy unit. The lectures were very engaging, and displayed a wide variety of musical cultures. The lecturer was very attentive, and a fun, great teacher. The labs are easy to follow, mostly requiring you to view music videos - very laidback. The all-MCQ exam was very easy and required basic preparation. Easy marks for this fun unit.
