It sounds like this could be a horrible joke, but sadly it seems to be true – the Black Eyed Peas are opening a music school in New York City, with the aim of teaching the young people of Manhattan how to make some killer tracks.  But don’t worry, Fergie’s not going to be teaching anyone how to sing – the school’s courses are going to focus on the production side of the music business.

Students will learn how to engineer and master multitrack studio sessions, and will also learn the basics of music video production.  The school has partnered with Adobe, who will be providing the necessary software and equipment.  Classes will be starting in July, so even high school students can take summer courses and learn how to make music the professional way.
