Schoolhouse Funk: Bootsy Collins Launches Online Education Program

Legendary funk music pioneer Bootsy Collins is starting an online education program for bass players. His Funk University is now accepting enrollments, and classes start July 1.

A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Collins rose to fame playing bass with James Brown and with Parliament-Funkadelics.

The course at Funk University offers video lectures and audio samples,exercises, articles, tablature, recording advice, community forums, and (something every student appreciates when they have a cool professor) office hours.

Online education is becoming increasingly popular, and Bootsy Collins hopes to demonstrate that it’s not just traditional academic subjects that will be taught this way.

In Collins’ words, he “couldn’t keep all this funk to myself,” and now bass players will have a chance to benefit from that.
