We will be using the created Subreddit and Dropbox for listening assignments and worksheets. I believe these two methods will be best because of the ease of having a forum to discuss the class materials as well as having a place to submit and host materials.
Although this is UReddit online course, as an educator, I do hold a certain standard to my students. Please DO NOT take part in the class unless you take it seriously and will out forth the effort TO LEARN. If you have no experience at all, or a professional musician, I'm here to show you the ropes and cannot learn the material for you. If you want to learn, you must practice the materials on your own time as well and ask questions if you have them. I AM HERE FOR YOU! PMs and posts on the subreddit are okay!
