This is one of the best courses I have taken so far.
The educator teaches in a correct way all the elements regarding the understanding the classical (an even general) music and forms of art.
I consider this course very hard, especially because there are a lot of materials to learn from. I created a document where I kept my notes and it is +47 pages long. But don't get me wrong, it is a course for total beginners.

I'm the most unmusical person in the world (so my wife says), and had no knowledge of classical music before starting the course. I found some of it challenging, especially the sections that concentrated on the technical aspects of the music. Nevertheless I felt I gained a lot, now have a little knowledge, and enjoyed the course. The professor's approach is very engaging and covers the historical development very well.
I thought I was going to learn a bit about western classical music, but I learnt an huge amount about 'music' as a whole. Craig Wright is an engaging and enthusiastic teacher. He has inspired me to learn more about medieval music. I've downloaded the course and have referred to it many times when studying other music MOOCs. Brilliant!
