Music of Paul Simon (Mondays, 1:30pm-3:30pm)   NEW!

This class will dig deep into the catalog of one of America’s great song-writing treasures: Paul Simon. We will discuss the music’s style and the artist’s changes over the course of his long, celebrated career. Moving chronologically, we will discuss different aspects of song craft relevant to each album. And we will aim to touch on songs from each of his albums extending beyond those songs that are most well known. Simon’s early career alongside Art Garfunkel is characterized by folk style and wonderful vocal duets. But he quickly began incorporating blues, rock, jazz, gospel and “world” music styles into his sound-world as a solo artist. No knowledge of music is required – just a love of listening.

Maximum Class Size: 110.
