Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was very enlightening as it was more than just learning about music, it was about opening your eyes to a new world of sensory perception and ideas. I enjoyed learning about some of the different composers throughout time and how they helped to shape some of what we have today. They worked throughout so many complex times. I felt as if I were learning about not only the music but their lives as well.
Learning about composers and the way music evolved over the course of history made this class very interesting. Not having experienced classical music growing up I had no idea that it's statements throughout the scores are very moving. They take you to highs and lows once you understand what they are doing.

Advice for students:
Take it. The experience will open your eyes to a world that you will only know about if you were to research it. Learning about the ways the composers suffered and how they built themselves into the musical masters they were is amazing. The composers were more human than I had ever imagined.
