Course Description

The Beatles were arguably the most famous rock group in history. The reasons for this status are musical and cultural, and Mr. Schultz explores both elements simultaneously. He’ll guide us through the artistic output of the quartet, analyzing the musical structure of their songs, decoding lyrics, tracking how their music changed over time, and discovering who and what helped shape their artistry. Most importantly, Mr. Schultz will help us understand why they were so popular and influential. It’s been more than fifty years since a Beatles’ album topped the charts, but who can’t still hum a tune or two? OLLI and Mr. Schultz offer you an exploration of a cultural phenomenon that will not require a Hard Day’s Night.
