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.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE MUSIC OF THE BEATLES
Great course! I knew nothing of the music of the Beatles, but this course has made me appreciate the poetry and musical innovation of the Beatles.
This course way very entertaining and informative. I particularly liked the personal touches reflecting each of the band members. Excellent course.
Very good history of the Beatles and their style of music.
A little more about the Beatles lives and their travel dates over the years would have been added interest.
Engagingly presented course that struck the right balance between academic rigor and learning for fun. Really enjoyed this course. Top marks to the tutor!
