Instructor: Jason Jobin
This course, though it will include listening components, is focused on the writing behind the music: the rhymes, the techniques, the syncopation of a rap song, and how the way it is written translates to the way it is eventually spoken or performed. There will be assignments examining written technique and rhyme schemes, as well as a final written project either examing a particular artist’s hip hop writing or writing an original song.
