Provided insight into what I was listening to as a pre-teen. I didn't have the exposure to some of the older roots or the an understanding of the business forces that shaped the music I had access to.
This course has really helped to fill out my piecemeal understanding of the development of rock music. The pace and content of learning has been well considered and Prof Covach is to be congratulated.
I found the course to be very interesting. I enjoyed learning about the artists and songwriters that shaped the birth of Rock and Roll and made it into the genre that so many are great fans of.
I'm loving this course! Not only is it educational, and I'm retaining information, it's FUN! John Covach is a fantastic teacher, and very enjoyable to listen to & learn from.
I had a great time learning in the course! The professor did a great job in educating and providing an unbiased history of rock music. I had a lot of fun!! Ready for Pt II!!!
This is an excellent course that I would highly recommend to any music and history lover. The professor is wonderful and is obviously passionate about the subject matter.
Great course! Learnt so much about the culture and music genres such as blues, pop and rock during the 50s-80s. Enjoyed the lessons and music recommendations! Thank you!
This course has given a good explanation of the inspiration behind Rock, as well as a perfectly understandable explanation of why things were the way they were.
Must know for anyone that is interested in where all (most) current/popular music stems from. Explains origins of most American/European music genres.
