British singer Sting went back to classroom this week, taking the role of a musical mentor for a group of college students of University of Illinois at Chicago. Burst in with MTV cameras in companion, Sting and his band had completely surprised the students, who had been told that their regular class was going to be filmed for a promotional video for the university.

Immediately cheers by the students, Sting opened the "coincidence" visit by playing "Message In A Bottle," a hit with the Police, the rock trio that he led to fame during the 1970s and '80s. Sting played an electric bass, accompanied by two acoustic guitars and a shaker. He later took questions from the audience, discussing unusual time signatures, his music influences and his composition techniques.

Moreover, Sting continued advising the students not to sweat the details and to keep playing music as a way to nourish the soul. Next, he ended the class inviting the students to join him and his band in an extended jam of his biggest hit, "Every Breath You Take."
