来自Music as Biology: What We Like to Hear and Why的热门评论

创建者 MMSep 22nd 2016

This course has helped me to understand biological psychology of humans towards music. Based on this knowledge i am confident to create music which will seem good to the ears of humans.

创建者 GGJun 11th 2017

Great course, very informative for anyone who wishes to explore deeper aspects of music that have to do with biology and psychology.
