‘Write, Rap and Record’ is an exciting winter workshop series aimed at young people between the ages of 12 and 14 years of age.
Run in partnership between the North West Clare Family Resource Centre (NWFRC) and Music Generation Clare (MGCE), it will take place over eight Wednesday evenings from 16:20-18:00 in the North West Clare Family Resource Centre, Ennistymon, commencing on October 5th, 2016.
This eight week programme, which does not require any previous experience in music theory or performance, gives participants the opportunity to work with mynameisjOhn (Rusango Family) and Theresa Leahy and brings young people from diverse cultural and international backgrounds together who wish to engage in a creative music environment and record their music for camera.
Facilitated and led by mynameisjOhn (Rusango Family), participants will undergo a collaborative program that will explore their artistic expression in electronic music / hip-hop and identify how it can be used as a means of personal reflection and expression. Participants will discover an awareness of the history and evolution of DJ culture and hip-hop music, and the techniques involved in its production and performance. They will explore rhythm and vocal percussion, DJing, rap/song writing, production & sampling, recording and performance. Drama facilitator Theresa Leahy will explore the voice as a means of self-expression, and vocal technique.
A fee of €40 for the 8 workshops applies, and there are a very limited number of places available. Participants are advised to complete the online expression of interest form available on the Music Generation Clare Facebook and Twitter pages, The North West Clare Family Resource Centre, or in hard copy, upon request. Places are very limited and strictly for young musicians aged between 12 and 14 years.
