Excellent course that covers everything from the basics of sound to the complexities of MIDI and other forms of digital music. The professor has an top notch grasp on the subject matter and does a great job of explaining it in a way that even somebody with only a little bit of musical experience can understand. The course works more like a college course than other Coursera courses. The course grade is based on scores from a midterm and a final exam that can only be taken once each. The tests were straightforward although the wording on a question or two of the questions made picking the answer harder than it should have been. The only hesitation I have about recommending this course is that the instructor clears his throat alot, sometimes to the point of distraction. I was able to overlook it because I was focused on learning the material but it proved too distracting for one of my friends.
