Music Appreciation

So I was sitting in Music Appreciation class today, and I know what you guys are thinking...Music Appreciation...why would you be taking that?! Well this is a class that is a general education credit that I had the opportunity to take to count for my graduation. Today in this class we got to listen to the Korean Percussion ensemble, which is a group of student and faculty musicians who perform for fun as a 1 credit class. In Music Appreciation. we often get the opportunity to listen to various types of music, and in turn we write reports on what we hear. If you ever want to have a fun general education class...this is definitely one that all of you should choose if you are thinking about going into Music, or if you just like listening to all types of Music, including music through the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary eras. When you begin to take general education credits, sign up for some classes you know will interest you, and also some classes that you know absolutely nothing about. It's part of the unique general education experience!
