Course Description:

This course covers songwriting basics such as structure (including narrative and experimental structures), rhythm/meter/cadence, and the writing process, as well as more advanced/hip hop-specific topics like creative vocabulary, rhyme (including slant/B rhymes, internal vs external rhymes, etc.), figurative language, and working with/without a beat. Students will learn to use few words to speak volumes and will engage in a variety of rhyming and freewriting exercises in addition to drafting and developing polished songs/verses. Students will also gain exposure to the history and purpose of hip hop lyrics as well as inspiration for their own writing.
