The Roots’ drummer Questlove is exchanging his drumsticks for textbooks. The Late Night with Jimmy Fallon band leader will be teaching a class titled “Classic Albums” at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University during the school’s next semester.

According to Billboard, the class will examine what makes an album classic and why they remain popular in the modern day. Some albums students will study include Led Zeppelin’s IV and Aretha Franklin’s Lady Soul.
