Great substantive info
Great presenter with great knowledge of the music industry and how to best represent a recording and performing musical artist.
Most informative I have watched. An industry I am extremely interested in so it kept my attention.
Instructor was well prepared and interesting
Of the 8 or so courses I've completed thus far, I really enjoyed this one the most. The instructor was a little off topic and shifting around a bit, but he was nonetheless on point with the lecture.
Very good intro course
