Kozinn's article is of interest to the Continuing Education gang for at least three reasons. The first is obvious. Many of the "older" lifelong learners out there grew up with the Beatles. I'm guessing a whole lot of them would really enjoy reliving those years by taking a Beatles course. If you're a grown-up hippie, ask about one at your local university or community ed. center.
The second group is for the non-traditional student who hasn't finished a degree, maybe even in music, and might be able to find a distance learning course that would rejuvenate all those wonderful reasons you started down the music path in the first place. Stir things up.
And the third? This is the kind of course continuing education administrators should have their eye on if they're trying to keep enrollments up. Kozinn wrote "that nearly twice as many students as [he] could accommodate showed up." That's a course with draw.
I can tell you the idea gets my wheels turning as an adjunct. What a fun course to teach. Let's add a fourth interest group: teachers. I don't have the depth of knowledge I would need to teach this course, but I'm betting some of you do.
