Comment:
DISASTER. As I've taken Theory II twice, comprehending the subject was a lot easier for me than the first-time students. He often referred to his class as a dictatorship and MANY students agree that it is either his way or the highway. He isn't knowledgeable and double checks everything with the book. He's here for the money, not to help students.

Pay close attention to Finale instructions and do not make careless mistakes on arranging projects. Very thorough teacher with the amount of class time given. A few writing projects and a few tests on instrument/voice ranges, sound quality, projection etc.

I learned a lot from this class, even though it was a huge amount of info squeezed into a small amount of time. I enjoyed doing the projects, although the tests are pretty tricky. Dr. Leshnoff is not only well versed and knowledgable on the subject, he is also very enthusiastic, which helps!

Comment:
The class isn't difficult, but he makes it so. I took the same class at Essex and did so much better, b/c lets face it Essexs' music classes are better than towson's. I ended up auditing the class, because I was so frustrated with it. He does everything backwards and makes it more complicated than it needs to be.

Wonderful professor. His philosophy is kind of to cut the student loose and encourage independent thinking, which is a little too difficult for some people, but by far the best theory class I've taken at Towson. A great asset, with much knowledge.

Great guy, with an good sense of humor. He's always prepared for class and really knows the material. He really tries to help students improve on their weaknesses. Gives quizzes every session, so study and ask questions.

Comment:
This course was unreasonably difficult, and I advise no one to ever take it from him. He raised the difficulty from previous semesters and the majority of the class either dropped or failed. Somewhat nice guy though. Good sense of humor.
