[lastfm]Jim Jones[/lastfm] will begin teaching a 6-week high school course to educate students on the inner-working of the music business. Jones was cleared by the Board of Education in New York to teach the class, and he will begin teaching Music Business 101 on Tuesday (April 27th) in New York. The course is being presented by Entertainers 4 Education (E4EA), a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2005 by entertainment executive, Tonya Lewis and educator J.P. Taylor. The rapper is on the board of the non-profit organization, which educates students on the importance of education and self development. After Jones finishes teaching the high school students on Monday, he will head over to Fordham University, to speak to college-level students about the music industry. At both events, Jones will specifically teach the kids about artist management, creative control over content, intellectual property, production, distribution, music operations and music business “threats.” (AllHipHop.com)
