The last time we heard about the man who brought us Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé, Matthew Knowles, he was selling posters of the latter for $200. Now, he’s offering a course for the same price (for an extra $100, you can upgrade to VIP and get a private lunch and picture with the guy). Titled, “The Entertainment Industry: How Do I Get In?” the one-day workshop will be held at the Hobby Center in Houston, and is for all “aspiring singers, dancers, composers, writers, producers, managers, publicists, attorneys, business managers and all other entertainment industry hopefuls.”

This isn’t Knowles’ first time teaching, either. He actually held this same seminar last year (which included fellow entertainment industry member and teacher Bun B), and he also teaches a class called “The Recording Industry,” that focuses on entertainment recording management, at Texas Southern University.

If you do decide to venture out to Houston to discover your inner Beyoncé, be forewarned: This class doesn’t have a textbook. “We will not have a textbook, because I am the book,” Knowles said in a recent interview. If that (or the price tag) doesn’t scare you away, you could very well be the next big thing in the music industry.
