“So You Want to Be a Rock ‘n’ Roll Star”

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Well, you have to take the class, says guest lecturer David Leaf. The classes will be held at the UCLA Popper Theater at Schoenberg Hall, but sorry, they already have a waiting list for a class size of 144 people. But hey, someone may drop out?!

The clear goal of the class is to expose the students to a multitude of ways a person can make a career in the music business. Each class will be divided into two parts: one will have award winning musicians or songwriters speak and perform their music and then the second part of the class will be music professionals from the business side.

Some of the award winning artists already lined up will be: Mac Davis, Peter Asher, and Charlotte Caffey.
