Humanitas 9th graders will be participating in a hip-hop songwriting workshop on Tuesday, 12/10 as part of their Finding Identity thematic unit. The day will also include a scavenger hunt tour of the Grammy museum and its special exhibits.

From popping and locking, to MC’ing and DJ’ing, to its influence on clothing and fashion, Hip-Hop has proved to be more than just a genre of music. “The Art of Songwriting: Hip-Hop,” not only dissects Hip-Hop lyrical content, but also explores the genre’s past, present and future while looking at the origins of the musical form and its influence on society.
