Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Poetry is at the heart of music in a lot of ways, from obvious connections like lyrics to deeper points like their shared love of rhythms, so I thought we could take a look at Shakespeare’s favorite kind of poem, the Sonnet! Writing a good sonnet takes a deep understanding of language, meter, and rhyme, and understanding how they work won’t just make us better poets, it’ll make us better musicians too!
