It was a new course so I understand there was lots to tweak. Lots of irrelevant info, repeated info, very expensive fees that kept rising each year without a correlation with course improvement

Study modeOn-campus
Some of it was very confusing, such as modulation in theory, but overall I enjoyed it. I loved the solo assessments and the recitals because they give opportunities to think outside the box, and I took that to the next level, adding choreography to my last one.
It is too soon to tell if this course had a positive impact on the student’s career, or they did not study for career reasons
