This class was tough.
Professor Hofmann, the director of CSUF Liberal Studies, pushes students to their limit. He is very helpful and resourceful. He has travelled to the places we discuss in class to help bring to life the art and music that has influenced today's contemporary lifestyles. I am taking him for LBST 333 as well.
The highlight of this course was our music segment. We compared the music from the Renaissance period to the 20th century, covering the high renaissance, mannerism, baroque, romantic, and classical music styles. My favorite part was learning that Mozart, one of the most famous classicism pianists, had the first name Wolfgang. He's music explored so many different ranges of emotion, resembling a strong passion controlled by mental restraint.
