Ringo Starr Will Be Your New Mentor In Masterclass
It Launches on November 22
Legendary Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is the latest rockstar to team up with MasterClass. He will be hosting his own virtual tutorial sessions on drumming and creative collaboration. The online course launches on November 22.
The collaboration was announced during Masterclass’ first-ever First Look event, which took place at the Whitney Museum of American Art and where the company unveiled new courses, learning experiences, and initiatives to aid underserved communities.
“MasterClass puts you in the room with the world’s best, giving members unprecedented access to the greatest minds of our time,” David Rogier, founder and CEO of MasterClass, said. “Today’s announcements will expand that opportunity with new classes, features, integrations and partnerships that will help deliver access to the platform to more people in more ways and in more places.”
MasterClass offers a subscription program that allows users to access tutorials and lectures from people deemed experts in their respective fields. Tom Morello, Carlos Santana, and Metallica are some of the rockers who previously hosted lessons in MasterClass.
Meanwhile, Starr recently led a group of 100 drummers in a cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together”. It was part of a campaign to end world hunger. The version featured Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith, The Police’s Stewart Copeland, Free’s Simon Kirke, and many more.
