Alter the Air with Beatmaking

This class explores how to use techniques like sampling, arrangement, sound selection and frequency to produce original digital tracks. You will also practice the arts of beatboxing and DJing.
Podcasting, Graffiti & Graphic Design
Winter Trimester: Jan 22 – Mar 19
The art forms of podcasting, graffiti and graphic design have totally transformed how we stop, look and listen! In this class, you’ll write and record your own podcast to flip the script on a topic that matters to you. You’ll also create “signs of the times” with graffiti and digital graphic designs.
Connect, Collab, Create & Pop with Rap Lyrics & Dance
Spring Trimester: Apr 2 – May 21
Find your hip hop style as you play with words and movements. In this class, we’ll get on our feet to try hip hop dances from then and now. We’ll also uncover the secrets to writing a great rap in your own voice— and we’ll perform and record our original lyrics. Working together and encouraging each other, we’ll build confidence and learn how to get into the moment.
Hip Hop students have the opportunity to experiment and learn more about the technology associated with their Saturday training in a Tech Lab every Tuesday from 6 – 7:30PM.
