Women have made great strides in recent years. While there is still a-ways to go, we now have a female Vice President, and women are gaining more and more acceptance as “equals” in many other endeavors. In noting their progress, it seems appropriate to recognize them for their great contributions to popular music.

This course will highlight many of the great women songwriters and performers working today or in the recent past. I have chosen a very eclectic mix of musical styles, as these talented women can be successful in many different genres. Performers will include Barbra Streisand, Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLachlan, Dusty Springfield, Bonnie Tyler, Carole King, Melanie, Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, Taylor Swift, and many others. Videos of their best performances will be shown.

Instructor - Joe Corn spent most of his professional career as an engineer. He has taught in the NYC school system, Springfield Technical Community College and Penn State University, and worked as a technical instructor for Moore Products Co. Since joining WISE in 2010, Joe has presented both music and technical courses and is also a past President of WISE.
