All You Need is Love…of Music

Cost$200
Description‘The best music never grows old’. There is no better example of this than the songs of The Beatles from the 1960s, which are still sung, arranged and enjoyed today – more than half a century later!

Beatles songs changed pop music forever. ‘Homework’ will simply be to listen to a designated Beatles song. In class, we’ll learn a little Beatles history followed by studying the designated song via an interactive worksheet. Learn what makes Beatles songs great and why this music has ‘stood the test of time.’

How many of today’s pop songs will still be relevant in fifty years?
