I learned so much from this course and I appreciated it immensely. Professor Cook and his colleagues showed enormous caring and enthusiasm that were quite infectious. I learned much more than I anticipated. I got over my fear of coding, and enjoyed learning and exploring the Chuck language and its enormous potential.
Physical modeling is my favorite kind of synthesis, and it's very difficult to find a good place to learn about it. Professor Cook is an expert in the field and himself created very powerful tools which he clearly enjoys sharing with students.
He was also extremely helpful and responsive when I submitted questions online. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning about physical modeling synthesis.
