MUS 337 The Beatles

This course examines the origins and development of the Beatles, beginning with the group's origins in the skiffle and R&B genres and then dividing their subsequent recorded output into the now-customary three periods. Equal consideration is given to, on the one hand, such musical concerns as style, form, and tonality, and, on the other, their social impact in the United States, Britain, and beyond.
