Goal 4- MUSC 224

I took this class in the Spring of 2019. This class covered my general education goal number 4. Through this class I was able to learn about music throughout time periods such as the baroque period, the classical period, and the modern times. We also learned about important elements of music such as pitch, tempo, and timbre. The artifact from this is a paper we had to write about the composer Antonin Dvorak and his student Harry T. Burleigh. In this I used my knowledge about musical nationalism in order to discover more about this composer. In order to improve this paper I would have spent more time delving into the history behind the composer in terms of his particular works. From this class I was able to bring away important knowledge about music that I can use when I sound design for theatre.
