Hi everyone, this is how emails to the class will look from now on. You will receive an email notification with the first part of the message displaying and the rest of the message clipped. Please ALWAYS CLICK THE LINK to view the entire message on our course site; there might be other elements that don’t show up in your email such as attachments, images, rich text, etc.

I’ve added some listening to the playlist for Thursday, as indicated on the front page of the website. I’ll be redesigning the course website this weekend a little bit but it will still function identically, just with slightly different look and layout. For these songs, a number of them are quite long (“All Blues,” “Chameleon”) and you don’t have to listen to the entire thing if you don’t want to (although you’re more than welcome to!) but take in at least 5 minutes or so of each so that you get a good feel for what the song’s form and content are like. For Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, please listen to the whole thing.

Lastly, I am going to comment on all your blog posts by the end of the day tomorrow. So far, they are all great, thanks for taking time and care with them. My comments will be private so only you can see them.

See you Thursday,

Prof. Cohen
