B.A.R.S. (hannah and brandon)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

Born at a basement party in the Bronx, hip hop has come to influence and inspire music across genres and styles. Despite its many mutations, it remains grounded in a culture that includes specific language, lingo, references, rhythm, beats, legacy, heritage, style, swag, etc. There’s a lot to learn, explore, and have a boogie to. 

BARS: Hannah and Brandon unite to facilitate a class on hip hop lyric analysis. This class will be structured by weekly student song selection, close listening practice, and analysis of the lyrics or BARS, as said in the world of hip hop. 

This class is a practice in text analysis that will also include big learning about history, culture, evolution of language, and current events. You don’t need to be a hip hop head (like Hannah) to enjoy and learn from this class.
