1 Yang Alex Yang 3 May 2012 Sarah Schwartz Benjamin Power Music 111 Session Review On the night of May 2 nd 2012, I attended a Irish traditional music session in The Loft at UCSD. The Loft can be described as a bar with a bustling, informal atmosphere; the perfect place for a small group of musicians to play a few tunes in a casual setting. The venue was slightly dim with a small, lighted stage. When a couple of friends and I arrived, the Loft was more crowded than we had anticipated. Fortunately, there was an unoccupied table in the middle of the room, where we could observe the musicians closely. We quickly sat down and watched the musicians drinking and preparing their instruments. Unlike most musical performances, the ensemble was seated among the audience, which greatly contributed to the relaxed setting. The ensemble initially consisted of a guitar, fiddle, Uillean pipes, and two flutes. After a few minutes, without any introduction the musicians launched straight into their first tune. At first it was difficult to clearly hear the musicians and each of their instruments. There were no microphones and the audience was allowed (and encouraged) to continue socializing. In a traditional Irish pub, music is often not the main focus of the audience. Rather, the pub was where the Irish community went to talk with each another.

    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.
