It was an incredible experience, I would like to thank Thomas Kelly Forrest for the way he conducted the course, his calm explanations and the incredible and relevant details. It was a wonderful opportunity ...

It was a wonderful opportunity to learn a little more about the music of the Romantic period and about the Fantastic Symphony.

After finishing the previous three courses, it gets even better. I mean, come on, guys, even Godfather 3 isn't that good, but you managed to outdone yourselves with each step.

I mean, come on, guys, even Godfather 3 isn't that good, but you managed to outdone yourselves with each step. In this course you'll learn not only details, theory, historical facts and cultural context regarding Berlioz's life, work and Fantastic symphony, but also interesting trivia from various manuscripts and memoirs you won't find anywhere else. Unless, of course, you buy the book First Nights, which I did immediately, since I'm a FN junkie after these courses. Amazing videos and fun exercises, you feel as if you're having fun and not studying. I've done more than 70 MOOCs, and this whole series is in the top three. Masterpiece.
