New online course traces The Beatles’ first visit to America in 1964

Whether you were alive in February 1964 or not, every Beatles fan knows the significance of the group’s first visit to America. All the entertainment forces collided at once to make the second week in February the most impactful week in the history of rock and roll, and of course, The Beatles’ career.

It was 58 years ago at this time that the U.S. was preparing for The Beatles arrival in America! During the month of January 1964, “The Beatles Are Coming” campaign was spreading like wildfire in anticipation of this group of four lads from Liverpool coming to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964. It was a 14-day visit that changed history, changed the world and changed the lives of so many music fans.

But too often, these monumental two weeks get compacted into a single video clip or paragraph in the story of The Beatles. Now it’s time to go back and re-live the Beatles visit, day by day, hour by hour. Go behind the scenes to see what was happening from The Beatles’ point of view.

New online course traces The Fab Four’s origins from Quarrymen to Beatles

Universities around the globe are offering classes on The Beatles for hundreds and thousands of dollars per semester – but what about the rest of us? What are your options if you’re not in school, or you can’t attend the location where the class is being offered?

To solve this dilemma, Daytrippin’ School of Rock History now brings the college class into the homes of Beatles fans around the world in the form of an online community. Accessible 24/7 from your laptop, tablet or smartphone, music lovers can go deeper into the study of The Fab Four and how they created their music.

In a curriculum that spans a course of 6 weeks, Daytrippin’ is offering their first online course called The Early Beatles: How The Fab Four Came Together. The course offers detailed lectures that illustrate key insights into Beatles history, filled with in-depth reporting, audio and video examples and exclusive interviews with musicians, industry insiders and experts of music history.

Daytrippin’ publisher and course instructor Trina Yannicos is excited to offer Beatles fans a chance to share ideas and learn fascinating discoveries online for much less than it would cost to take a college class.

In The Early Beatles class, you’ll learn the history of the early Beatles from 1956 to 1962 — from the formation of The Quarrymen to The Beatles’ first recording session at Abbey Road Studios.

The Beatles recording career has been well documented but what about the period before The Beatles got a record contract and hit it big?

“Without Elvis, there would be no Beatles,” John Lennon stated matter-of-factly in a 1980 interview.

You love The Beatles’ music, but do you really know what inspired The Beatles and how the group was formed?

To truly appreciate The Beatles and their music, you need to understand the group’s origins and the impact that Presley and other rock and roll artists had on the group.

In The Early Beatles course, you’ll go back in time to the 1950s and watch the transformation of John, Paul, George and later Ringo take place from the formation of The Quarrymen to The Beatles’ first recording session at Abbey Road Studios.

Who were the key players in the early days of The Beatles? How did Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best change the course of Beatles history? Who were The Beatles managers before they met Brian Epstein?

Over a six-week period, we’ll explore in-depth the history of the early Beatles from 1956 to 1962 with fascinating insights from those who were there including John Lennon’s best friend, Pete Shotton; Beatles fan club secretary Freda Kelly; the boys’ close friend in Germany, Astrid Kirchherr; and more.

Elvis represented the pinnacle of success in rock and roll, and he set the model for The Beatles’ achievement of success. The goal of becoming “bigger than Elvis” helped propel the band into worldwide fame which in many ways surpassed The King.

In only 6 weeks, you can become an expert on The Early Beatles learning in-depth details about how the group was formed, what inspired them and what obstacles they faced along the way.
