Imagine you show up for class one day and instead of your normal teacher, in walks a bonafide rock star.
That’s exactly what’s going to happen to students at The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma when Guns N’ Roses guitarist Richard Fortus leads a public master class on Feb. 21.
Fortus bring some pretty impressive credentials to this teaching gig. Not only has he been a member of GNR since 2001, Fortus has also worked with the likes of Thin Lizzy, The Psychedelic Furs, Fiona Apple, The Crystal Method just to name a few.
This isn’t the first time that a rock star has taught at The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. Get a load of this list of past “professors”: Jackson Browne; Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who; singer-songwriter Ben Folds; Warner Bros. Records President Livia Tortella; Grammy-nominated producer Greg Kurstin; singer-songwriter Simon Townshend; blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa; and Flaming Lips’ Steven Drozd.
According to their website, The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma offers students multiple ways to rock. The school offers two-year associate degree programs in bass, drums, guitar, keyboard, music business, music production and vocals, with the option to pursue a Bachelor of Applied Technology degree.
We don’t know about you but we’re thinking these kind of classes could just make us want to go back school.
