MUSI 2960
African American Percussive Music: From Africa to the Americas
5*****
Pros: This class is awesome and hilarious and requires no work to be done, except for one class project that can be pretty easy if you choose it to be. You don't need to really show up to class, but it's a lot of fun, so you might as well, even if you feel like a fool beating on a drum with no idea what you're doing; Dr. Scott teaches the class similar to an elementary school class. You also actually learn about percussion techniques, styles, and instruments, and get to play many of them.

MUSI 2960
African American Percussive Music: From Africa to the Americas
5*****
Pros: Dr. Scott is probably the nicest professor you will ever have. He wants students to enjoy the class and do well and gives "second chances" for people who don't do well on the midterm. The first part of class we took notes and the second half we played. No musical ability required.
Cons: Sometimes difficult to get motivated to go to class because you won't fall behind if you don't go
Counts as a multicultural for Franklin!

African American Percussive Music: From Africa to the Americas
5*****
Pros: Best teacher I've had… EVER! So knowledgeable and so passionate about what he does. Class is a blast, and even though he doesn't take attendance, you want to go simply because its so fun! You may think the class is completely irrelevant, but Dr. Scott really does find a way to connect his drumming career and education to real life situations. TAKE THIS CLASS!!

MUSI 2960
African American Percussive Music: From Africa to the Americas
5*****
Pros: A joke

I was a notetaker and got $80 without even showing up to class

HONORS OPTION!
Cons: None
We had a "midterm" - I don't think it was graded

Project took a max of 30 minutes to complete and 5 minutes to present

Final was 2 questions and was pass/fail

I didn't show up more than once a week after spring break

It is a fun class if you like drumming
