OK, here's the story: I signed up for Music 105 "Introductory" Music Theory, this spring, cause I would like to learn to read music to expand my horizons as a bass player. Well....THE CLASS IS FILLED WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN IN MARCHING BAND OR ORCHESTRA FOR LIKE 5-6 (or more) YEARS. *** are they doing in a class for "Introductory" music theory for NONMAJORS!!!!! Of course, they already know most of the subject material. The average grade on the test was an 89/100. Talk to Peter McFerrin about what the average grades on some of the hard tests here are. For example, in freshman year honors math (Calc II), I got a 110/200 on the final. THAT WAS AN A. The average grade on the test was 79/200. Another good one, from Chem 357 (Organic Chemistry I); the third main test had a average grade of 42/100, with a standard deviation of 29. This means, literally, it was impossible to fail without getting a negative score, and that an A was a 60/100. I got a 39, and still got a B-. Anyways, I've probably decided to learn music theory AT MY OWN PACE by dropping the class and reading the books, seeing as this POS college makes you hate subjects in which you love the subject material. UGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
