Musicbrainz is a crowd-sourced database of music metadata. The level 6 class of Data Science teaches students about big data, using a large database, interacting with a database from a programming language, exporting data as XML, JSON or CSV, applying data mining algorithms and visualising data. This paper reports on using Musicbrainz in this class as well as the Orange educational tool. After a description of the class, this paper will give an evaluation based on students’ questionnaires and a discussion on the experience and how to improve the class.
