Isaac So says:

I think people who don't know music history won't understand it, and people who do know music history won't enjoy so many pop culture jokes…
Who's your target audience here?
is this just a big joke video? because I don't think it acts as an communicator of information that well, what with jokes inserted so nonchalantly it might be hard for someone coming in blind to distinguish…

Susan Vaughan says:

You just made my voice student's lives SOO much more fun!

Paul says:

Thanks, that was great! "Classic Catholic Church, am I right?" Lol.

Odin G.S says:

I appreciate the idea but I feel like you could have put more effort into the jokes and the timing. Have you seen bill wurtz?

Emerick Dee says:

WOW! Just…WOW! I laughed out loud several times and can't wait to share this with my students! If only I had been so fortunate to have a music history professor who made everything as interesting and exciting and this! It almost makes me want to research some music history…almost…but not quite. You ROCK!
