In the Hip Hop – Let Me Rap to You!, you’ll be introduced to the 4 elements of the Hiphop culture: deejaying (music), break dancing (dance), graffiti (visual art), and emceeing (writing, rapping).
Though the focus of workshop is writing, composing and performance, it is open to any add-ons from the other elements within the culture. The information about the history and purpose of the workshop in the introduction of the video gives context to the relationship between music, art, and education. You will see live footage of students going through this very process from classroom to recording studio, from start to completion.
