This exciting class is taught by the popular professor of music at Carnegie Mellon University, Stephen Schultz. Sharing the secrets of songs from the Beatle’s LPs A Hard day’s Night, Beatles for Sale, Help, and Rubber Soul, attendees will learn more about the music of the most influential band in Rock and Roll history. A major topic of investigation will be the influence of classical and world music on the unique compositional styles of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison. For those who have taken Beatles I or II, this material was not previously covered.
Week I: A Hard Day’s Night
The Beatles first LP with all original songs and the soundtrack to their first film.
Week II: Beatles for Sale
Touring takes its toll as the Beatles don’t have enough original material for a complete LP. The music becomes moodier and darker.
Week III: Help
The Beatles first color film and an album with instant classics like Yesterday, Ticket to Ride, and You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away.
Week IV: Rubber Soul
The Beatles enter their greatest creative period with this break through LP. New sounds, exotic instruments, songs to listen to, not dance to.
TIX: $100 for the 4 week series, $25/drop-in
