In this session, we'll analyze a classic pop song in depth. We will analyze and discuss aspects of songwriting, lyrics, melody, harmony, arrangement and production, exploring what makes this song so good? This course will touch on some music theory concepts such as: form, modulations, and the circle of fifths.
No prior understanding of music theory is necessary, though those with experience are more than welcome to join as well!
