Some call him the space cowboy, some people call him Maurice, but you may refer to him as Mr. Miller.

Steve Miller, the man behind such monster hits as “The Joker,” “Rock ‘n Me,” “Take the Money and Run,” and “Fly Like an Eagle,” has signed on teach at the University of Southern California’s top-rated Thornton School of Music this fall. He’ll teach master classes in the Popular Music and Music Industry programs. And there’s a lot you can learn from the man who’s sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

“This is an amazing opportunity for the students at USC Thornton,” said Chris Sampson, the school’s associative dean. “Clearly, Steve cares deeply about the next generation of musicians and wants to be a part of their growth. His willingness to share his incredible experience with our students will undoubtedly transform their experience.”

Kind of makes you want to go back to college.
