“Because a groove is a terrible thing to waste.” – Prof. Bootsy

Bootsy Collins presents the world’s first Funk University for bass players of planet Earth. Construction of the virtual online campus will conclude in June, with the first semester beginning on July 1, 2010.

This sonic learning institution will be unlike anything before, as Professor Collins and the finest bassists in music will unleash an intense curriculum, on the web, for intermediate to advanced funk disciples within the program. Enrollment is limited for the first year. For more information about the program and to learn about pre-registration opportunities, please provide your information.
