London-based music college LCCM just made a significant addition to its teaching roster.

Veteran US music executive, author and educator Mathew Knowles, father of superstars Beyoncé and Solange, has joined LCCM as a visiting lecturer.

Plus, starting in the new academic year (September 2022), the highly-ranked music college is also offering a fully funded scholarship in Knowles’ name.

Open to musicians, producers and aspiring music executives, the Mathew Knowles Scholarship will be judged by Knowles himself, and the winning applicant will receive a full-fee bursary for a three-year undergraduate, or one-year masters degree at the college.
