Last week I facilitated a music experience where the teens in my group wrote and performed original raps using the line “I know I can ____________.”
I just had to share with you the powerful lyrics that were written by one of the group members who is on the autism spectrum (shared with client permission):
Not only did he write those lyrics about facing his “talking fear,” but he stood up and rapped in front of the entire group.
By listening to what my clients were telling me about their preferred music (rap and hip hop!) I was able to create some really meaningful…and engaging….musical experiences. Experiences that not only target multiple goals, but ones that are considered “cool” by my clients and ones they want to participate in.
If you’re looking for ways to engage your teen clients using rap and hip hop beats in original and creative ways and would like to know exactly how I facilitated the experience I just described, then I would love for you to check out my new resource.
It’s called the Rap Pack for Teens.
The Rap Pack includes an E-Book full of ideas for how to use raps in your sessions, plus 12 original mp3 tracks with looped beats for rapping. You’ll learn how to create and perform rhythm combo raps and freestyle raps, plus tons of ways to vary and extend each musical experience.
I have to tell you, I really enjoyed creating this resource, so I hope you’ll click here to find out more about what’s included in the rap pack!
