Making a Difference in Our County Through the Arts

PCAC presents an interactive rhyme-writing session with members of The Secret Agency including Grammy-winning songwriter, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, and fellow rappers Secret Agent Hi-Fi and Secret Agent Cool Breeze. Kids will learn how to express themselves creatively, rapping their own original creations over boom bap beats while gaining an understanding of slant rhymes, syllable manipulation, and bar counting.

Grammy winning hip-hop artist Secret Agent 23 Skidoo will teach an all ages rhyme writing workshop that shines a light on each step, from the page to the stage. Although the art of rhyme writing may seem overwhelming to a beginner, 23 Skidoo has created a program that breaks the process down into easy steps that anyone can accomplish. From understanding different techniques of finding rhyming words and writing bars to learning mic control and stage presence, each student will start by writing their own original piece and finish onstage rocking for the crowd. 23 Skidoo brings the beats, worksheets, and enthusiasm. All the kids need is an open mind and some of their favorite words.
