Record Company CEO/Singer Beyonce’s Father Mathew Knowles is staying busy and recently relinquished his title of professor of music at Texas Southern University School of Communication.
The CEO of Music World Entertainment will go back to teaching his signature course, The Recording Industry, beginning in the spring semester, which starts on Jan. 23.
The insightful course gives students a glimpse of how the industry works from business affairs and marketing to A&R and distribution. It also explores specialized areas of the industry including artist development, branding, songwriting, music publishing and so much more.
“Teaching and mentoring young adults is one of my passions,” says Knowles. “I am most impressed with their intellect and creative thinking abilities. I’m confident that my students will continue to develop into critical thinkers and will go on to be brilliant contributors to society.”
And don’t get him wrong; he’s not putting his music career on hold. He’ll continue running the company and nurturing new talent at Music World Entertainment.
