Excellent course! Very well designed and systematically organised with useful materials. I have learnt a lot and gained confidence to continue my music path, Thank you Professor Edwards!
Amazing. It has been like finally understanding a language I had been listening my whole life. I actually didn't want it to end.
Really great and practical! You can really start to write some sophisticated music with this course!
I liked it so much I took it again a couple of years later. Very helpful, informative, and educationally broadening.
