Here is what one visitor to The Classroom had to say. "It is a wonderful site and a fun way to learn - perfect for neophytes such as myself, but I'm sure everyone could benefit from it. I've only had time for a brief visit yesterday (work...) but will have time today to explore (I've bookmarked, of course). I needed help figuring out the meter in Ravel's Bolero (that's how much of a neophyte I am) but once I got it, it made sense. This is not only a great way to understand classical music, it is applicable to so much more. Again, I thank you for the suggestion. It'll be fun exploring the various classrooms."
