Music Resonance Series Presents Hip-Hop ILM Virtual Workshops

Monday, April 19

Hip-hop has been embedded in American culture since the early 1970s, but until recently only on the fringes of music education. The National Association for Music Education is advocating for efforts to address diversity and inclusion and equity and access in the music teaching and learning profession.

Hip-Hop ILM is a partnership between Dreams of Wilmington and the UNCW Department of Music, funded by the Applied Learning and Community Engagement Pedagogy Initiative Award from the Office of Community Engagement and Applied Learning. The collaboration brings hip-hop songwriting experiences to Dreams’ students and supports university music students’ development in writing original music.

During the free virtual event, participants will engage with leading hip-hop educators and artists on producing original music and developing educational tools to introduce groundbreaking concepts into classrooms.

Sessions are scheduled for April 12, 14, 19, 21, 26 and 28. Details and registration link online.
