They wrote the songs that changed music. Often on the guitar. In this mind-expanding class, you will study the Masters, with a master. You will learn not only how to play the great songs on guitar--you will learn the harmony-melody concepts of those songs and how to make use of them in your own songs. This is a deep dive into songcraft, chord progressions, melody, rhythm, song structure, music theory, and so much more.

We are so pleased to again offer this exceptional class, and for the first time ever in a fully interactive online format!
Bill LaFleur has built FIVE full 6-class meeting cycles ("Seasons")--more than 30 Beatles songs and music lessons to last a literal lifetime of creating. The full text is more than 400 pages--a book soon to be published.
Want to study still more Beatles? Guitar and piano players alike, take Bill's self-paced/on-demand class The Beatles Code and go deeper on a theoretical tip. Then join in for the masterclass meet-up and get input on your own use of the Code in your original songs.
Teacher Bill LaFleur is uniquely qualified to teach this class. Not only is he a patient, enthusiastic teacher who has previously headed our Beatles for Guitar and Guitar for Songwriters classes. He has transcribed Magical Mystery Tour for Hal Leonard Publishing and has been charged with the task of CORRECTING their previously "complete" scores of The Beatles. Thus the class will make use of his own painstaking analysis and presentation of Beatles classics.
For the last many years he has been lead transcriber and arranger for NBC's The Voice and continues to create and edit scores and transcriptions for Hal Leonard Publishing.
The handouts for this class alone are remarkable materials that will give you years of compositional material to build on. Some Music Theory knowledge strongly suggested. Students should have completed Music Theory for Songwriters, Level 1 or the equivalent. Some Level 2 knowledge encouraged though not required.
