BEAT Explorers is a music production and lyricism program that engages students in creative and technical aspects of storytelling through MC'ing/rapping, songwriting and original music production. Participants will learn how to create a basic beat using online music production software. They will then brainstorm ideas and words based on a theme before taking some time to write original rhymes/verses based on that theme. Volunteers will be asked to perform their creations live in front of the group followed by a round of constructive criticism and feedback from their peers.
This program is open to teens ages 14-18. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
This is being offered through a partnership between the Grafton-Midview Public Library and the Elyria Public Library System.
