NEWS: U.K College Offers 2-Year Course in Heavy Metal

According to BBC News, New College Nottingham, one of the biggest further college in the U.K, is now offering a 2-year professional course in heavy metal music.

This course was formed over a 7-month period by Liam Nemoy, a lecturer in music performance at the college. He described the course as "academically rigorous."

Lemoy stated, "In the past, heavy metal has not been taken seriously and is seen as lacking academic credibility when compared with other genres such as jazz and classical music," he adds. "But that's just a cultural construction."

During the course (which starts in September), students will learn how to compose and record heavy metal music, as well as learn it's history, it's role in popular media, etc. The students will also get to perform in live venues in and around the country in the 2nd year of the course.
