Editor's Note: First Notes is a weekly update of recent, cool happenings in the world of music.

* Patrick Douthit - also known as 9th Wonder, the Grammy-winning producer - will teach a course on hip-hop context and culture at North Carolina Central University in the fall of 2014. Douthit served as an adjunct professor at NCCU from 2006-2009 and recently taught courses at Duke and Harvard.

* Ed Sheeran will perform at Time Warner Cable Arena on Sept. 11. The pop-folk Grammy nominee was on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, where he debuted a new song, "Sing."

* Coachella wrapped up its first weekend out in California with a headlining performance by Outkast.

* The MTV Movie Awards were broadcast last night, in case you forgot about the event (or the network). Turns out it's the last year for the awards show. And, yep, it's about movies, but the performance featuring Eminem and Rihanna is getting all the attention.

* The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame held its induction ceremony late last week, but it was the Nirvana after-show concert that had everyone talking.
