33 Revolutions per Minute: Music & Social Issues
We have found it so rewarding to explore connections between music and political issues & movements for social change, and to think critically about the varying effectiveness of political music, that I am continuing to offer more sessions on this subject.  We will also discuss topics related to "the politics of music".  A wide variety of genres and historical periods will be included.
Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30 PM, July 15 & 29, August 12 & 26.

Single sessions and multi-week classes will be available:

Highs in the Upper 60s: Music 1965-69
Description: The late 1960s was a turbulent time in the US, full of political changes, historic events, and a rich variety of musical experimentation. Come and think critically about the connections between music and events of this era. We will look at many genres including rock, folk, jazz, Motown, soul, classical and more, and we will explore both well-known and obscure musical selections. In addition to recorded examples, David will bring his guitar and sing some of the songs in class.

"Not only does he know the music inside-out, but he links it effectively to the relevant historical moment. The result is thought provoking and engaging for participants. David delivers for students with a sharp intelligence and a quiet passion for the world of music." - Stephen Strahs

"David is a teacher par excellence! He is incredibly knowledgeable . Information just flows from him and you hang on his every word. A true master teacher has knowledge about all components of his topic and weaves it into one story or in his case one song. This is what David does! His pleasant demeanor makes you just want to learn more! I’m looking forward to my third course with him. If you are interested in a topic he is teaching... take it! You won’t be sorry!!" - Debbie Neibauer

"I have taken several courses with David ranging from Classical Music to "pop" music of the sixties. I cannot say enough about his mastery of his subjects, enthusiasm, ability to convey concepts, and to make students comfortable with questions and responses. He is truly an incredible teacher and musician." - Natalie Simon
