Mathew Knowles, the man who brought us Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé (in more ways than one), is ready to share his wisdom with the masses — for the low, low price of $199.
Knowles, who remains to this day Destiny’s Child’s manager, is offering a one-day workshop called “The Entertainment Industry: How Do I Get In?” on Oct. 24 at Houston performing arts complex the Hobby Center. Targeted towards all “aspiring singers, dancers, composers, writers, producers, managers, publicists, attorneys, business managers and all other entertainment industry hopefuls,” the class is not actually Knowles’ first foray into education.
Aside from teaching a class at Texas Southern University called “The Recording Industry,” Knowles actually offered this same workshop last fall, and a correspondent from MTV was there. Apparently, so was Houston rap stalwart Bun B.
What are the keys to being Beyoncé besides, well, being Beyoncé (it’s worth noting that Knowles’ latest book is called The DNA of Achievers)? You’ll have to sign up for the course and find out — after all, as Knowles put it in a recent interview, “We will not have a textbook, because I am the book.”
