The Creative Pathway with Real-World Practical Industry Connections.
ACM’s first of a kind Rap & MC course explores the core aspects of Rap & MC music and culture, covering topics such as the history & evolution of both UK & U.S Hip Hop including all its subsequent sub genres such as Grime, Drill, UK Garage & Drum & Bass. Students will explore the specifics of each subgenre, submerging themselves into the sound, flow and narratives of each particular type of Rap & MC music. Learning about Rap music & its Culture will enable students to evolve their approach to writing and path to their profession with the proper mentality and skills. Students will learn how to adapt to any rap style or genre through collaboration and experimentation, thus ensuring a more robust and well rounded skill set as a practitioning MC & writer. The course starts by laying a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Rap through the honing and development of core skills: ‘Content’ (what is being said), ‘flow’ (rhythm, rhyme) and ‘delivery’ (cadence, tone). Students will study a variety of skill sets as they go through the course through our annually updated skills units, which include professional masterclasses, writing & recording sessions, working with a live band, stagecraft and performance.
