Pop Music Theory with Beatles Expert Mitchell Johnson

Join me in the inaugural episode of my new podcast, Composer Quest. I’ll be picking the brains of composers and songwriters to gain some insight into writing music. For the first episode, I interviewed Mitchell Johnson from Spencer McGillicutty.

We talk about pop music theory, Beatles songwriting techniques, Mitchell’s “Douchiest Song Challenge,” etc.
