Messages in the Music is an informative, fun interactive and educational course that will introduce you to the lyrical content of various genres of music played over the radio today. We explore current trends by examining the messages that are openly displayed and sometimes hidden in hip hop, rock & roll, country, heavy metal, emo, R&B, and blues. Participants will be actively involved in deciphering and dissecting the “Messages in the Music”. After completion, participants will be able to identify lyrics in various genres with negative messages, explore the lyrical content related to music youth are exposed to, and discuss the impact of risk related behaviors expressed in some music.
