"About and Beyond the Moods of Music"

The class consisted of mostly retired professionals (physicians, scientist, businessmen, lawyers, scholars) and other active, educated individuals with many holding Doctoral/PhD degrees. There were 146 participants.

The following is a representative selection of quotes from the written evaluations collected by the program administrators (each quote comes from a different participant):

"I've been listening to music since I was a young girl. Based on this course, I will be able to appreciate all music on a higher level. The teacher is extraordinary.
//
Please come back and teach more courses! // Actually changed my way of thinking about life. It's been a really unusual and marvelous experience. Thanks, and please come back.
//
I have been coming to Evergreen and Osher for many years. This class has been refreshingly different. I listen to music a lot and this course has inspired me to discover a new and more enjoyable way to listen. Mr. Sapieyevski gives his all. He has a great sense of humor. He is wonderful.
//
The instructor's enthusiasm was contagious and he involved the students beautifully no matter what their musical background (no easy task!)
//
I loved his class because of his presentation. He exceeded my expectations. I would take any course he taught!
//
Mr. Sapieyevski is a fabulous instructor. His passion and excitement for music alone is what made this class so special. When you combine this with his musical background and professional expertise, it makes for a most interesting, educational and joyful musical experience. I hope he will be encouraged to teach more classes. His excitement, passion is infectious and he has a wonderful sense of humor.

I most enjoyed the instructor as a talented musician. I wish he had played the piano more. The best moments were Mr. Sapieyevski's insights interpreting Mozart's Requiem Unforgettable! Second great moment "experiencing" Beethoven.
//
I enjoyed the teacher tremendously. He is a great musician who inspired all of us in many ways that were unknown to us.
//
What a breath of fresh air! He is terrific with an interesting style (+ remarkable ability at the piano!)"//
