Final Thoughts-Kori Barnes

When I first signed up for  this class, I was simply looking to fulfill my fine arts requirement. I did not know if I would enjoy it but fine arts is an area that does not really peak my interest. However, I am know able to say that I have learned so much about Black artists and their contribution to the world musically. Without this class, I would not have learned about the many genres that we have pioneered. My favorite genre was ragtime because I learned about the meaning of the term “cakewalk”.  I would recommend this class to students because it is not rigorous course but you learn a great deal of information. I truly enjoyed this class and I will definitely miss it!
