Sound quality is fair to poor. Muriel Stuart's voice is easily intelligible, but the voices of the students are sometimes difficult to understand. In addition, the recording is marred by extraneous noise and short periods of ambient noise. The final approximate 12 minutes consist of a class taught by Stuart.
