“I knew this was going to be an emotional course, but I am glad that I took it. Thank you for sharing your personal experiences and for creating this course. It really helped to open my eyes to hospice care. Professor Masko had the right balance of personal experiences coupled with references and studies and renewed my affirmation of the power of music. I really enjoy the ease of taking a course such as this in my home. It allows me to take a break if things become too emotionally overwhelming, rather than having to wait for a presenter to take a break. This is heavy material, and I enjoyed being able to complete it at my own pace.”
