33. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Applying the historical content we learned to todays generation, learning to understand what they did in the past to know where we stand today.
Everything.
All the topics were valuable
Learning the history of the music industry
Learning about how a label functions by actually becoming a hands on label in the class room.
The Instructor's knowledge and first-hand experience the subject matter is outstanding. His ability to get the message across and allowing active discussions within the allotted time frame of each class and making himself available to students concerns outside of the classroom is also outstanding!
The knowledge
since I am interested in the field of Music Business, everything learned in the class was valuable. the most important aspect was learning how record labels work, what their purpose was, the main events in history, and what is successful for that type of field.
The recording history facts
Everything
I just enjoyed to see the progress from before to now with how music changed and how music before influenced today's music. Jazz for example is in pretty much all American songs, but simplified.
Just the overall knowledge and history that was shared was valuable.
I felt that knowing the history opened you up to the music business as a whole
The knowledge that Instructor Lagrimas was sharing with us.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Every topic Instructor Lagrimas taught us was very detailed and clear to understand and learn. Also gave us more insight if we were confused on anything.
I enjoyed the activities.
The aspect of the course that I liked the best would have to be the real life examples that Eric Lagrimas and my classmates provided regarding the subject of the class, which is Music Business. Because of Eric Lagrimas' vast knowledge and understanding of Music Business, he's able to fluidly connect his own life experiences regarding it with the material that we talk about every class.
I liked how organized e teacher was and how straight forward the lessons one tests were. It made it really easy for me to understand complicated business concepts of the music industry.
Learning about the whole music business system
I liked the fact that we were able to respond to what we learned. For example, if we just learned something about what we always wondered about and everybody was shocked and amazed about how it actually worked, we would all practically get into a discussion and lagrimas would be apart of it.
He taught us things about the music and entertainment industry that I had never even begun to think about.
I like how much I have learned about the music business that I never knew
I liked the open discussion about a lot of the topics. There was definitely an open and inviting feeling to the class, and questions were never frowned upon.
Instructor Lagrimas was very thorough with his explanations of the content given. He was also very open to questions and discussing them during class time. He's also very organized and always on top of things such as keeping us updated on due dates, and assignments.
All of the information learned in this course is real-life knowledge. I loved learning everything Instructor Lagrimas had to offer in terms of his own experience and insight.
I enjoyed the open interactiveness of his lectures. He allowed all of us to speak openly and gain better clarity over all subject matters. He has real life experience in our field and was able to give us insight from a first hand perspective. He was always very clear with the lessons we were learning and very organized when it came to dead lines and assignment due dates.
The classes
The insider's view of the subject field and the expert knowledge shared by the instructor.
his personal experience, his willingness to address concerns and inquiries that seemed to be tangental to the lesson plan, the content.
The use of real life situations and examples really helped me see a clearer picture about the subjects in class. there was a lot of good visual aids as well.
the introduction to the music business and discovering all the different careers within the music industry that related to me
I liked the class discussions
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
This course was great all around. It is definitely a great class.
Obnoxious other students
The aspect of the course that I liked the least was that we didn't have enough "hands-on" experience. If we had different scenarios that we had to play out that were directly correlated with situations we would run into in the field of Music Business than that would have been beneficial.
Finding out the ugly side of business
I would have to say that the only thing I didn't like about the course was that there is a lot of information, sometimes too much, in one unit. So when test day comes there would be a lot you would have to study on.
n/a
n/a
What i liked least about the course was the requirement for hours.
Not much. I like the course the way it is. It is very organized and well planned out.
There were no aspects left to be desired.
I don't believe there was a single portion of this course that i did not enjoy.
The tests
The open class discussions and the instructor's willingness to share information that was very insightful into the subject matter.
nothing, really.
The lack of going in detail or being tested about the mathematics of the music industry.
learning about managers
I disliked watching the videos
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent. I learned a lot from this class and can't wait to pursue more in depth with this.
It was not what i expected but it is a good thing to kick off with if you are interested in the business side of music production
I enjoyed this course because of the better understanding and knowledge it has provided me with of the Music Business. It's not the easiest or widely talked about subject in society and I've always had a great interest in it so finally being able to thoroughly learn about it was extremely beneficial.
9/10
I would recommend this class to any person who wants to be in the music business. This class isn't just come in and learn and then take test. The information you receive from this class will stick with you forever if you're really serious about going into the music business.
excellent
A big eye opener! you may think you know something about the industry but you truly don't until you get to mele
It was great. It was very clear from the start that Instructor Lagrimas knows his subject Extremely well, and that he has the ability to communicate it thoroughly, clearly, and art a level that everyone can understand.
Very good. I enjoyed taking this class, and I feel I learned a lot for it being just a survey class.
This was a great course, period. I was excited to read the syllabus and description of the class, and it never strayed; it delivered.
Terrific! Being a first semester student in the MELE program, Eric helped me to find a future focus of the career i will be seeking after i graduate. He supplied ample information and resources in regards to the business basics of the Music business.
Great course!
An excellent course with the instructor's encouragement to the students to pursue and succeed in the subject matter.
pretty tight.
A very good class to participate in and is easy to grasp the knowledge. Students are well immersed in the class and the lessons are really interesting.
its a really good class no doubt. you have to work hard but in the end you gain a lot from it. eric lagarimas is a good professor.
Very good and informative for those entering the music business for the first time
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
n/a
Make it more interactive. Bring in Tom Mofatt maybe when hes not sick.
I had mentioned before in my "what I liked least" section but I'll state it again, I feel more real time scenarios should be given for the students to play out and have instructor Lagrimas mediate and give tips on what to do in those situations. Also, I feel the class should allow for more full class discussions in order to allow students to think in a group setting about the different topics covered in class.
More discussions among students. Other ways to learn the material besides lectures
This course could be improved if we had group projects so that collaboration would be a key thing when moving on to the next mele course after this class.
n/a
pretty straight forward class nothing needs improving
Have a little bit of an introduction to the music review assignments. Explain why he chose the specific songs possible, and his purpose in choosing that style of music.
Can't think of anything
There really wasn't anything more he could've done besides more elaborative study guides, but that is a personal preference.
I would say a class excursion to the other local studios, or class observations that we all did together and a lecture was accompanied so that we could see what we are learning in the moment and hands on.
Im not a teacher
No comments
not certain how, although i feel improvement in the form of intrinsic evolution correspondent with the developments in the industry are to be anticipated.
nothing
This course could be improved by having more activities to better understand price points. Also it can be improved by having more specific assignments to what we are going over in class at the time.
27. Other comments:
n/a
This was a great class, and I learned a lot. It wasn't too in depth, but it is just an introduction class to the business as a whole and not one specific portion. I think it covered all the parts to the business industry well. I feel like it didm' leave anything out, and that the knowledge i gained i can immediately begin to use in my real life.
I'm glad HCC took the time to screen proper instructors. They are all knowledgeable, experienced, and very easy to talk to and learn from.
Thank you for a great semester! looking forward to the Spring!
nope
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and its presentation.
more instructors so the class can be taught in the spring as well! expand the program...
I'f your seeing this professor lagarimas I'm sorry for not taking this class seriously during october. i plan to take this beginning course again in the fall of next year.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
i like everything
The aspect of the course did I like the best was the engagement with everyone and how Instructor Lagrimas did a good job in making everyone comfortable with others. He was a very flexible teacher and was very straight forward. This class is very fun and enjoyable !
Good use of examples, interesting lectures.
I really liked the topics we discussed and how they are applied in reL life situations and the instructor was good at emohasizing the value of the things we were learning
none
What I liked about this course was that it acted as a starting point from which we could see all the directions that could be our potential career paths.
THE INSTRUCTOR
The example and stories that Eric provides are the best.
I like how we work with discussions in class and how we explain things to each other.
This course was heavily informational. The examples that Eric gave throughout the course helped understand concepts learned in chapters learned/
The goals and expectations of the class were clear.
I love the fact that the professor has alot of experience in the music industry which has allow me to renew my passion for music business. He explains the concepts of music business very well.
Finding out the various job opportunities in the music business
I like that I learn about business and music history. It make me realize how important what is being audio engineering about.
The discussions during class were really good, as well as the connections we could make from examples he would give.
The whole course is outstanding. Any local musician... or individual for that matter would learn a great deal about business in general. The only way I learned more about business and primarily retail was to sell cars... and that took four years!
He was very well organized
Learning about the different opportunities not only in audio engineering but in the business side of the music industry as well.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
none
I really didn't dislike anything about it but i would have to say that an 1 hour of class isn't enough. Esepcially for those who really want to learn about the music biz
Nothing in particular.
Didnt like how almost example was at the level of years in experience, we didnt really talk alot about entry level experiences as much.
none
NEEDS TO BE MORE HANDS ON
All is good. Well, tests are a bit too much.
N/A
N/A
N/A
The students are not as passionate when they should.
The nitty gritty things of the music business
What I like least about this course is that I really like being audio engineering by learning business and music, but not really good at math much.
Sometimes we would go off track of the subject just a bit, but majority of the time, the subject matter was on point.
I wish I could have spent a bit more time in the studios, but that is not what this class is geared for. I had a chance to spend just two hours in studio A.
N/A
The final career exploration paper
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
perfect! i learn a lot from the class, and it was fun
This is a very well done course. I can't want for part two of the semester. I will surely recommend this class to my friends and peers. BOMB ASS(GREAT) CLASS!!
It was a helpful course.
I really enjoyed this class overall because all of the work was clearly stated in the beginning, it was engaging and fun
none
This course overall was really enjoyable as well as educational and it opened my eyes to all the options that I could have.
ITS OK
This is a great course for students to step into the doors.
The class is very informative on the subject. It makes you think more about the different types of job that actually are out there in the industry
I really enjoyed the course because I not only have an understanding of the creative aspect of the music industry but also a brief understanding of the business side.
This was a great course. I learned a lot about the music industry and now feel like I am much more competent navigating the ins and outs of the music business.
it was excellent.
This class was easy yet challenging at the same time, his teachings and power points were straight to the point which made test days even easier. He is a nice guy with a straight forward type of attitude, which makes life easier for the both of us
My overall about this course is that I try harder to focus and learn more about music and business. I get little confused, but still trying to learn.
Pretty interesting class, makes me wanna take the course. Lagrimus is a great teacher, willing to help and answer any questions. If your really into music business then this is the class to help you to get started on your career.
Overall, this class was really good and well organized.
Outstanding. Sorry to be brief.
Very good instructor
Very knowledgeable class while being taught in very fun and social way.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
it's well organize, i think is good
CREATE IT TO BE IN A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME :D
Being a survey course, it was as basic as it needed to be in my opinion.
This course could be improved by giving more real life situations that we can be applicable to us. Alot of the things we discussed were at the major, huge level, but we didnt discuss the entry level things we would do as much.
none
NEEDS TO BE MORE HANDS ON
1. More videos examples 2. Field trip or more guest speakers
N/A
N/A
More students should make the best out of this program. Get involved in the activities available to gain knowledge about the music industry. Ask more questions concerning the industry.
This course need to improve on working harder and tell students to read more about the business. Sometime they need to read before going to class.
The class seems to be already good already. Just keep the same format and teaching style going.
Put an on-line on-campus radio station on-the-air. To display the students works!
N/A
Course could be improved by doing more group assignments and showing more real life examples in the industry to compliment what we were learning.

This course is definitely recommended if you are pursuing a career in the music industry or just a hobbits looking to understand more about what really happens behind the glamour of the music business.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The aspects of the course I liked the best were when we discussed music business models, placement of songs in media, and the history/ background of music industry events.
I liked working on our final project throughout the course of the semester
Learning more about the music industry and the importance of Music Publishing.
Class topics, homework, and projects all had a clear goal and direction in mind, especially when compared to other classes that were very vague and hard to understand.
Publishing company project
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
nothing
That our notes/lectures weren't posted on laulima
Knocking off the rust from the time I took MELE 101.
Maybe it could have been more interactive. Maybe something like visiting a local publishing company or getting to talk to major local players in the business.
taking a test with partner or with 3 person team
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great and fun.
I really enjoy the MELE classes and Eric Lagrimas as a lecturer! He explains and breaks it down for anyone who has a hard time understanding
Excellent class, very informative and crucial in the Music Business.
Great class, engaging and easy to follow along with.
excellent course.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This class is very organized and I really like that the assignments are very spaced out (or very little) and more so, lecturing and preparing for tests.
Maybe considering a different textbook, due to the written style of our current textbook seeming a bit generalized on certain subject matter.
Already touched on the topic above
Make available, more the time slots and weekend availability for studio A
27. Other comments:
Great course.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I appreciated the inside information that I received from the instructor about real life situations.
The entire thing
The thorough explanations of the music industry and the open communication and all the extra help they provide for the students. They are almost always free to assist in helping students understand the music business.
I feel that this has been the best college course I have ever taken. Please note I have already graduated with my BA. This class was taken for supplemental learning. Erics real life experiences in the music industry was a major plus.
The best thing about the course is learning everything in an orderly manner and giving us students enough time to let the information process until moving on to the next section.
I liked the whole concept of the class, teaching music business is an important part of being in the industry.
All of it it was a great experience.
What I liked best in this course the activities we had in class. I also liked the slideshows and the freedom to ask questions during a lecture.

This class taught me a lot in a short period of time. Eric made it really fun and interesting.
Excellent course. Recommend it to everybody who wants to work in the music industry.
Superb!!
that this course is awesome. There's nothing like it in other schools in Hawaii and it gives me the opportunity to learn the basics about the my major, which I need before I learn anything else in the field. Its a good way to get my foot in the door to start a healthy path leading to a career I'm interested in the music industry.
Its a great course, Eric is a GREAT teacher. Although i wasn't self motivated the whole way i found myself enjoying this class.
It was fun, exciting and i would definately do it again.
The course is an overall success and for me was fun, informative and a very good learning experience.
It was very interesting and fun
i like it
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Make the classes longer :3
If anything, a little bit more group discussions. Connections plays a big part in the industry. So we should have group discussions a little bit more so we develop connections.

I would have enjoyed having more guest speakers come and talk to the class. It would have been a great way for the class to interact with people who have experienced things that are interesting because it gives me an idea of what I can be doing if I were to have a career like them.
Well its hard to say.. Eric did everything very well. Just from a personal point of view i would slow it down the tempo of the class just a little.

This course could be improved if there were more guest speakers (like artists, producers, managera, etc.). Another way the course could be improved is by having field trips to the music studios and music headquarters
