I’ll admit it. I’ve fallen asleep during a symphony concert. Ok, well not just one more like a lot. Not just symphony concerts either; I’ve fallen asleep during operas and musicals too. I would always justify this by telling myself, “You work hard Emily, you’ve been at school all day and you even practiced four hours after school! Its ok if you fall asleep because you’re a musician.” This went on for about two years until I went to the most amazing concert of my life. I had never heard of Gustov Mahler until I was driving with my harp teacher, Lynne Aspnes, to her concert where she was playing second harp in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. She had just picked me up from the airport as she started explaining to me Mahler’s longest symphony. I had no idea that I would be sitting in the concert hall for two hours straight with no intermission in the program at all. After a filling dinner, I found my seat in the center of the fifteenth row or so. I had a perfect view of the orchestra, I wasn’t too close nor too far.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
