THE BEATLES PHOTO GALLERY #06 (BLACK & WHITE)
The Music of the Beatles will track the musical development of the band, starting from the earliest days in Liverpool and Hamburg,
moving through the excitement of Beatlemania, the rush of psychedelia, and the maturity of Abbey Road. While the focus will be on
the music, we will also consider how recording techniques, the music business, the music of other artists, and the culture of the
1960s affected John, Paul, George, and Ringo as they created the Beatles repertory.
There is probably no band or artist that has had more written about their music than the Beatles. There are many good books on the
band's biography, several insider accounts offering glimpses behind the scenes, books that interpret the meaning of the songs, and
even books that catalog dates and people regarding the band. This course will try to synthesize much of that information into an
account of the Beatles' development as musicians and songwriters.
