Free Hip Hop course for young people - MusicNSW

Are you a Hip-Hop artist and want to take your story to the screen?
Young people who are interested in telling their stories and developing hip-hop
music are encouraged to participate in Hip-Hop 101. This latest urban music course from ICE will encourage young people to develop their lyric writing skills, right through to making a video clip.

Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE) is building on its successful hip-hop course, which trains artists to develop their lyrics, use digital music programs and record their songs. Participants in the next course, scheduled for September 25 to October 31, 2007, will also collaborate to make a group video clip.

Course coordinator MC Trey is a well-known Sydney hip-hop artist from Aria nominated hip-hop group, Foreign Heights, who is gaining wide recognition for her inspirational courses. She has worked on urban music projects at ICE, targeting unemployed, early school-leavers and at-risk young people from Western Sydney for over 12 months. For this project, she will work with renowned DJ, Nick Toth, and bring in a range of other high-profile artists.

The six-week course begins in September 25 and will run from 11am to 3pm, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in Granville at ICE’s Switch multimedia and digital arts centre.
