Tufts University: Malka Yaacobi - Music - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Malka, while a very nice woman, made for a bit of a scatterbrain in the classroom setting. Simple concepts often took entire classes to be related to us, in part due to difficulties in communication (her grasp on English is good, but not perfect) and a tendency to repeat demonstrations many times. We sometimes spent class time watching movies, which were more entertaining than educational. Despite this, after the first couple weeks I began to feel as though I was learning something.
The workload in this class was very small. The tests and quizzes were easy. The few non-composition assignments we were ever assigned always took under an hour. Even the composition assignments were easy and usually done in groups of two. Any failings of the professor were more than made up for by the excellence of the book. It is a wonderful, clear, and concise tool for learning music theory. All in all, I do not regret taking the class as it offered an easy grade paired with useful learning.
