1963 Beatles History

The Road to Stardom

Hey, Beatles fans - are you ready?

Sign up for the online class, 1963 Beatles History: The Road to Stardom, and over a four-week period, you'll learn in-depth history of how Beatlemania began in Britain and how The Fab Four went from performing at the bottom of the bill to the "toppermost of the poppermost" in 12 magical months!

While fans in the United States and the rest of the world see 1964 as the year The Beatles came on the scene, the 12 event-filled months of 1963 seem to get lost in the shuffle.

This was the year when all the pieces of the puzzle started falling into place. Following the moderate success of their first single "Love Me Do" in late 1962, The Beatles started building their pathway to stardom in 1963 and learned a formula to create hits.

In the new 1963 Beatles History course, you’ll go back in time to this important and crucial year and examine what happened to The Beatles personally and professionally month by month.

Over a four-week period, we’ll explore in-depth the history of the Beatles in 1963 with fascinating insights from those who were there!

The "1963 Beatles History: The Road to Stardom" course will be taught by music historian, author and Daytrippin' publisher, Trina Young.

- how The Beatles logo was created
