A106: "Everything Has Changed": The Evolution of Taylor Swift’s Songwriting Eras in Splash Splash Spring 2022 (Apr. 23 - 24, 2022)
Calling all Swifties! This class will discuss the evolution of Taylor Swift's songwriting, rise to fame, and reception from her musical debut in 2006 to present day. First, we'll cover the span of her "eras", as they're known to her fan base, that correspond to the different genres and "looks" she has explored throughout her career. Then, we plan to look into lyrical and musical parallels between her eras, along with how her newer music epitomizes the self-reflection that has come with her maturity as an artist.
