    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Experiencing Music was a great course. I would recommend this course to anyone wether they have a musical background or not. Dr. Wenger gave the class plenty of work, but he had realistic expectations and interesting units to learn from. I greatly enjoyed learning about the history of music.

    Course highlights:

    Two of the major highlights in this course included the entire second unit and the concert reviews. I have been a Catholic for my entire life. I have always gone to church, been an altar girl, I went through confirmation, teach a class, and even sang in the choir. Until this course, I never knew where the basis of Catholic mass music came from. The second unit talked heavily about Pope Gregory I, or Gregory the Great. I knew slight of him, but I had no idea that he created a type of mass music called Gregorian Chant. In the unit, I read history over the topics, and get to listen to pieces of music. As I was listening to Gregorian Chant music, I realized that this is exactly what my church sings. I had never known what it was. Dr. Wenger requires students to attend concerts and write a short synopsis and review. I have only been to my high school’s choir and band concerts. Dr. Wenger pushed me to branch out and attend concerts in Kansas City, Lee’s Summit and on campus. I had never been to an opera show before. I went to one, and I instantly fell in love! I attended jazz, opera, and classical concerts and learned so much! The concerts were actually a lot of fun, and the ones on campus were free. Even though I finished my concert reviews, I still go to concerts near me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest piece of advice that I can give is "Do not procrastinate!" The class has 4 units, with roughly 5 lessons in each, and 5 concert reviews. The work is not hard, but if you let it go, I can see where it could become overwhelming very quickly.
