About this course:
From the Brill Building hits of the early ’60s to the surf songs of The Beach Boys; from the British Invasion led by The Beatles to the Greenwich Village folk music scene; the first half of the decade was a reflection of Bob Dylan’s social consciousness. The times they were a changin’ and so was the music. The second half of the ’60s gave us the Monterey Pop Festival, the San Francisco Flower Power movement, and the culmination of the decade, Woodstock. Through personal stories and video clips, this course focuses on the excitement and turbulence of the decade, when rock and roll was reinvented and became an art form.
