Ryan Wisneski MUH2012 Due: December 4 th , 2008 Word Count: 1,576 Writing Assignment #2 Option #1 Personal Musical History Throughout my life music has played a huge role in my development as a young adult and I now thoroughly enjoy listening to music on a daily basis. When I am sitting in my room there is rarely a moment that I do not have music rushing through my speakers and filling my room with rap, hip-hop, rhythm and blues, country, rock, or music of other genres to match whatever mood I may find myself in.

    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.
