Teacher of the Year

Date: 6 May 2019

Following the success of Ten Tonne Sparrow’s Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) in 2018, multi-disciplinary artist Tom Hogan returns to PACT with the musical lecture series, Teacher of the Year.

Spiced with humour and irreverence, Teacher of the Year explores ideas on active listening, music history trivia, and creative and technical philosophies.

Designed for music fans, creatives and audiophiles, the series will include three lectures across five nights featuring music from Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Bruce Springsteen and Harry Styles to name a few.

“It’s real. These are my lectures,”says Hogan. “These chaotic, educational comedy concerts are a way to rethink listening to music. They’re designed to engage people in weird and fun ways to redefine popular music.

“They need to be the right balance of feeling unpredictable and unprepared, but still structured and cohesive. No time for character arc – this is just passion.”
