11 October 2015, 15:42

Los Angeles - Beyoncé's father is teaching a course on how to be a superstar.

Mathew Knowles, 63, who is still his daughter's band Destiny Child's manager, will conduct a workshop called The Entertainment Industry: How Do I Get In?, which is aimed for all "aspiring singers, dancers, composers, writers, producers, managers, publicists, attorneys, business managers and all other entertainment industry hopefuls", according to the Hollywood Reporter.

It's not the first time Knowles has taught young hopefuls how to match the fame of his international superstar offspring, he did a similar class last year and also teaches The Recording Industry, for those who want a career as a recording manager.

However, Knowles insisted there are no "textbooks" involved because he is the course material.

He previously said: "Every class, the students are like, 'Textbooks.' And I love this - I always laugh: We will not have a textbook because I am the book."

Those aspiring to have a successful career in the music industry can come along to the one-day seminar on 24 October, held at the Hobby Center in Houston, Texas for just $199.
