Why does the music of the Beatles sound different from the Rolling Stones? How do musicians improvise? What makes Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony so memorable?
In this new six video lecture series, musician, musicologist and lecturer Dr. Mike Daley (The Beatles and Their World, The 1960s in Sixty Songs) will be joined by Jill Daley, full-time pianist at Canada's National Ballet School and musician-in-residence at Church of the Redeemer for a series of dialogues and demonstrations to answer these questions and more. Mike and Jill will explain the inner workings of rhythm, melody, harmony, texture and timbre, composition and improvisation with the aid of live musical examples on guitar, piano, violin and voice from the world of rock, jazz, classical, folk and more.
