Principales reseñas sobre HISTORY OF ROCK, PART ONE
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.
The enthusiasm of the lecturer coupled with the extensive depth that the course goes into makes this a thouroughly enjoyable learning experience
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.
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.
