He can be a little confusing sometimes, but he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He genuinely knows what he talks about, even though he is not always the best at communicating it. DO NOT expect to skip his class and do well!

LITERALLY DO NOT TAKE MUSIC FUND. WITH HIM. It is the most boring class in the world. waste of time. Doesn't let you out early. DGAF's about students.. if you need a good teacher take Al clift.

Comment:
I took Music Fundamentals for my art credit and did not enjoy this class at all. I had a very limited knowledge of music, but I found this class to be exceedingly dull... Dr. Cathey is a bit bipolar and you can never tell when he's about to laugh or yell at you. SUCH an easy class, but so, so boring.

Comment:
Music Fundamentals would be challenging if you are new to music. If you know some things it will be a waste of time. Dr. Cathey is an average professor, but he is very willing to help you if you put forth some effort and show a desire to learn. You'll get out of this class what you put into it. I like Dr. Cathey, but I couldn't stand the class.

What a Gem. I learned so much from being in his choir. Great diversity of music.He never plays favorites-He's the undergrad chair and there are 120+ people in his choir and orchestra so introduce yourself and be friendly. Members who understand the choir is a ministry group and join giving instead of expecting to receive tend to enjoy it more.

great man! cares deeply for his students, wants them to succeed but asks that you do your part. you put in the effort and time and he'll make it happen for you. really worships with his students. claps for God in like every concert-which can get old, but worth every minute of it to be a part of this group.

Gives the oppertunity to conduct in front of everyone everyday, which is crucial for conductors. Gives great feedback telling not only how something should be done, but also why it needs to be that way.

Comment:
He is such a man of God. His leadership style is really laid back, which is a nice chaneg compared to the rest of the music department. He gives alot of slack, but if you abuse it he will take it all away real quick. Take him if you can, he is an amazing man!
