Questlove will teach a course named ‘Classic Albums’ at the Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
According to the NME:
The course was inspired by a blog post by an intern at NPR, in which the writer took a dismissive stance on an album that’s generally regarded as a classic: Public Enemy’s ‘It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back‘. In the comments, ?uestlove wrote, “Your job is to find out why classic records are considered as such by researching and uncovering the context in which they were first released,” The Clive Davis Institute’s Jason King saw the comment and contacted Questlove to see if he would be interested in teaching the class.
Harry Weinger, vice president of Universal Music Enterprises, will co-teach the class with Questlove.
