Don’t know if it’s still that way or not, but when I was in unversity you could take a course in Music Appreciation to satisfy the Fine Arts requirement in the general Arts program. I opted for Art History instead. And that’s where my initial interest in the arts was piqued, leading me a decade or so later to start writing in the area.
