This course is a incredible one to kick start as a musician , it allows one to grow and learn basic musical chords and notes, it gave me deep knowledge about the harmony, ear training and song form.
Wonderful course! The instructor is great and the lessons are very well planned and with attainable learning goals. So much fun! I loved it so much I enrolled in the 4-course Specialization.

The professor is super fun and engaging! A good beginner friendly class. The video feels like it's getting outdated, but the material is timeless.
Was a good introduction to ear training and basic chord progressions. Good recap for intermediate-level musicians and great pace for beginners.

This course works for me.
I had classical background but wanted to learn more about how to make use of chords and combination of chords.

I don't understand in the final assignment it says the written part is optional yet you ask us to grade our peers based upon the written part of the assignment. Very unclear. All the Berklee advertisements are heavy handed and annoying making it seem like you're just trying to get more people to spend too much money on a degree. The fundamental instruction is great though and easy to follow along.
The content is basic and with appropriately narrow scope of theory and applications.
The course materials are well done, but unless you pay for the class, you have difficulties completing material week to week. For example, you can not take any of the multiple choice tests (and unless you pay, of course you can't submit assignments, which is fine). Then, you are said to be overdue or locked out for the next week's classes because you did not complete the assignments. There is a workaround it, which is tedious and time-consuming (you have to redo information from the prior week) and not where I want to spend my time. Other classes allow you to audit the class, even take multiple choice quizzes (which can be machine graded), without being "pushed" to pay for the class.
There were also times it was impossible to log into the class due to a slow system. Then, once logged in, you have to "redo" prior week's stuff to move ahead. Ridiculous.

You cannot progress as you desire. Stupid exercises for advanced users you cannot bypass. Waste of time.

Despite being a paid course, it doesn't provide any interaction or reviewing from the faculty AT ALL.
