The Beatles: Their Music and Their Times MUSC 422 Fall 2010 47220R — Mondays and Wednesdays, 4 – 5:50 pm, THH 202 Bill Biersach, Lecturer Julia Adolphe and Keegan Anglim. Teaching Assistants Introduction and Purpose This course will familiarize the student with the music, lyrics, recordings, personal and public lives, production techniques, career strategy, social ramifications, and technological impact of the musical group known as The Beatles. The goal is to imbue the student with an appreciation for the music itself, a basic understanding of the primitive technology available at the time, and a broader comprehension of the social, economic, political, and cultural upheavals that gave rise to the musical trends of the Sixties. Instructional Strategy Each week the professor will present a lecture which will include musical examples, video and audio clips, and pertinent background information on the four Beatles, their personal and professional dealings, their approach to live performance and studio recording, and the activities of their managerial and production staff. There will also be a discussion session led by teaching assistants in which more extensive video clips as well as the Beatles’ movies will be viewed, the texts will be reviewed and students will be encouraged to ask questions and share their opinions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
