23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
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.
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.
I appreciated the inside information that I received from the instructor about real life situations.
The entire thing
The individual speaches
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.
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.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The only thing I liked least about the course was the pop quizes, and that's pretty much it.
n/a
I do not have any complaints about this course.

There was nothing bad about the course. Everything was considered a positive gain and influence.
Well it wasnt a class that i was planning on taking.

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
i like it
The course is an overall success and for me was fun, informative and a very good learning experience.
Superb!!
It is a great course for young aspiring students to attend.
This class taught me a lot in a short period of time. Eric made it really fun and interesting.
It was very interesting and fun
Excellent course. Recommend it to everybody who wants to work in the music industry.
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.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
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
n/a
Make the classes longer :3
The amount of projects More extra credit More inthuesiasm
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.
