What skills were developed?
Students crafted Beatles covers in an authentic band set-up, learning to play instruments mastered by The Beatles, and develop styles of playing found in many Beatles songs. They learnt to read chord-symbols, and develop independent, well-directed ensembles. Skills in rehearsal technique as well as technical mastery were of equal focus. Students also developed artistically by re-imagining an original piece of Beatles merchandise in their own context. Students submitted four drafts before reaching their final product.
