The Music of the Beatles Ensemble
This ensemble is dedicated to recreating the Beatles' recordings with careful attention to detail. This is an ear training ensemble that involves singing and playing the actual transcriptions, note for note, that the Beatles performed. This class requires deep listening and ear training and does not use charts. The Beatles – Complete Scores book is recommended. Songs are picked by the students. This class trains students to join an existing band or to back up an artist that wants record copy arrangements of their recordings by teaching how to listen for parts: notes, rhythms, tone, timbre, phrasing, articulation, pronunciation, style, and groove. This training adds colors, nuance, and great variety to students' musicianship skills.
