Time To Go Back To College? New Music Courses At NYU and USC Thanks To Steven Van Zandt, Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre

17 May

These days I wish I was back in college but not for the reasons you might be thinking. To be a student at NYU or USC is pretty special right now.

On the east coast, NYU with the assistance of Steven Van Zandt’s Rock and Roll Forever Foundation in partnership with the GRAMMY Museum are introducing Rock and Roll: An American Story (RRAAS), an interdisciplinary middle and high school curriculum that explores Rock and Roll from its roots in blues, country music, gospel, and R&B to its latest incarnations today.

Out west at USC, the university announced plans with Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre to develop an Arts Academy after a $70 million donation from the music heavyweights.  The money will be used to create the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation will enroll 25 students beginning in 2014.
