About this course:

How did a girl born and raised in a couple of small towns in Canada become one of the most important and influential musicians of the second half of the 20th century? For Roberta Joan Anderson, more commonly known as Joni Mitchell, her journey is just as incredible as her music. While the origins of her career were tied to one of the most popular genres of music of that time, she quickly became a trailblazer, taking folk music to new heights before moving it into brilliant, but unfamiliar territory and eventually leaving it all behind to create music that could only come from her. In this course, we cover it all: where her obsession with music began, her busking days in Toronto, the transition to being a professional recording artist, and the nearly five decades of astounding work that followed.
