Rhymecology: Art of Hip-Hop Lyrics
Mission: The mission of the Rhymecology focus group is to use the power and intricacy of hip-hop lyrics to help lyricists of any level discover and create themselves as artists and human beings.
Why? The world of the structure, content and rhyme schemes in hip-hop lyrics have changed dramatically. Simple rhyme schemes and generic topics just don’t cut it anymore. Lyrics are immediately put under a microscope and there no leeway for emerging artists to take their time to grow.
Get prepared NOW with multi-syllabic rhymes/outside the box topics/freestyle secrets and lyric writing exercises. Classic songs don’t just fall from the sky; they are created from ideas and words which go from their mind to the notebook and into the studio. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, Rhymecology will give you the tools to take your lyric writing to the next level!
Sessions: Rhymecology sessions are interactive and thought provoking. We have listening sessions, listening to each other as well as talented lyricists throughout hip-hop history. We will push each other to reach greater lyrical heights while still respecting everyone’s perspective level of writing. While this is hip-hop oriented, many have come in the past who just want to improve rhyming skills for their song writing.
Why the fee?? Fair question! I put on these groups because I love rhyming/writing/flowing. But as you know if you have come before, I am running the workshop, giving feedback, teaching secrets, showing examples & techniques. If you make the commitment to your art and writing, I make the commitment to you.
“This Meetup Group was a great experience. All the attendees wrote amazingly. Even people who never wrote before were amazed at their sudden rhyming skills. I hope this can become a regular thing so I can keep improving. Mr Walker has a mountain of talent and for people to be able to ask questions and be tutored and inspired by him is a blessing and a gift. Thank you again"
"This workshop is very helpful and would definitely improve your rhyming skillz."
