Zac Brown Band Guitarist is Now an Instructor at a New England College
I guess one of the perks from this whole pandemic thing is that colleges can get really awesome people to teach their classes since distance is not an obstacle! Remote learning has become, dare I refer to a term we all know and hate, "the new normal". And artists who would normally be out on the road performing or filming are stuck at home in their sweatpants just like the rest of us.
I know what you're thinking, "Well that's a pay cut!" but not necessarily. Matthew McConaughey reportedly rakes in $12,000 a class to teach at his alma mater, the University of Texas. Not too shabby! Can you imagine taking a course taught by Matthew McConaughey? "Alright, alright, alright, class. The thing I love about college girls is...." Just kidding! Or am I?
Zac Brown Band guitarist, Clay Cook, took to Twitter a few days ago to announce he too will be returning to his roots! Next semester he will be an instructor at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
What an awesome opportunity for Clay and the incoming students at Berklee! Not only can Clay provide the students with guidance from a technical standpoint, he can speak to what it's like once you have finally made it in the music industry.
So many successful musicians started their journeys within those walls. John Mayer, Charlie Puth, Melissa Etheridge and so many others are former students at Berklee. Clay has a chance to as he put it, "shape the next generation of musicians" and that is pretty dang cool.
