I like them but I'm not familiar enough with the classical form to really appreciate what's going on. A few classes might take care of that but I don't play an instrument really (or at the very least, I don't want to learn how to play one) so finding just a class that will lead me through the basics without having me sit down at the piano is...well...not an option at my school right now.
