February 12, 2010

Flaming LipsOn Feb 10 The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma will present a master class with Flaming Lips multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd. Open only to enrolled students, the class will consist of an interview and audience Q with Drozd who will discuss musicianship as well as aspects of life as a professional musician. "I wish this [school] would have been around when I was a 17- or 18-year-old kid," Drozd told NPR.

In its inaugural semester last fall, the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM@UCO) began providing a solid foundation in music and the music business - with an emphasis on rock - for students aspiring to careers in the industry. Highlights of the fall semester included a master class by The Who's Roger Daltrey and a mini-concert by rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson backed by ACM students.

Since its creation, ACM@UCO has generated worldwide buzz about its innovative, groundbreaking approach to music education - the first of its kind in the United States. The school, which grants a two-year associate's degree in music performance and production, is the U.S. branch of Britain's groundbreaking Academy of Contemporary Music, based in Guildford, England.
