I chose to take History of Rock to complete Goal 4. I had a particular interest in rock because of my love of The Beatles and music from the 1960s. This class helped me to form a new perspective on not only that time period, but the music that resulted from it. In the class, we listened to music from each of the time periods we studied and also had class discussions on the pieces. I enjoyed the class discussion because Mr. McEvoy really new the subject matter he was teaching and he helped to convey bigger ideas that were present in the music. I especially like when he would give us assignments that allowed us to pick songs that we enjoyed and describe their meaning in relation to our own lives.
