Episode #8 “I Know It’s Today” from Shrek the musical (by Jeanine Tesori)
This week, Jacob will focus on discussing musical form over a whole form by unpacking “I Know It’s Today” from Shrek the musical (by Jeanine Tesori). He will cover concepts including modulation, vocal arrangements, and variants on traditional song form.
Each week, Jacob will choose one musical theatre song to deconstruct, analyze, and explain with the goal of highlighting basic music theory and demonstrating how the composer used those techniques to tell that specific moment of the story. All of the language/vocabulary will be explained in the most basic way possible to make sure that the series is as inclusive as possible.
Age group: Middle school and up.
