Funkmaster Bootsy Collins can now add another bullet point to his resume: university founder.
Collins has announced that his online University of Funk will go live July 1.
A note on thefunkuniversity.com reads:
Bootsy Collins presents the world's first Funk University for bass players of planet Earth. Construction of this online campus will conclude in June, with the first semester beginning on July 1, 2010.
Because a groove is a terrible thing to waste, this sonic learning institution will be unlike anything before, as Professor Collins and the finest bassists in music will unleash an intense curriculum, on the web, for intermediate to advanced funk disciples within the program. Enrollment is limited for the first year. For more information about the program and to learn about pre-registration opportunities, please provide your information.
