Metallica have announced a new venture called “Being a Band,” which gives fans the opportunity to learn from the rockers a class on how to be a band.
Marking their 40th anniversary, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo will teach on the popular streaming platform MasterClass.
MasterClass is the widely respected streaming platform where one can learn about a vast range of subjects from over 100 leaders in their respective fields including actors, chefs, writers, photographers, directors, musicians, athletes, entrepreneurs, and more.
Metallica announced that their class is available to all subscribers starting Thursday.
The band members will share how they have learned to be effective communicators, manage criticism, and embrace different personalities among the band mates.
“We’ll also walk you through our collaborative processes for specific tunes and show our techniques for songwriting by taking a song from its conception as a riff to its finished arrangement, complete with lyrics, and solos, with deconstructions of ‘Enter Sandman,’ ‘One,’ and ‘Master of Puppets.’ We’ll talk about our approach to putting together entire albums and performing live, and for the encore, you’ll get a six-song exclusive live performance we created just for MasterClass,” the announcement says.
Metallica promises that MasterClass subscribers will get unlimited access to all 100+ instructors with an annual membership.
