This is the second year that Music Doing Good in Schools has offered this TEKS-aligned, after-school musical arts enrichment program to students attending Title I schools. The program provides a safe place for exploration and self-expression, confidence-building, leadership skills, and real-world knowledge of a professional artistic experience. Music Doing Good in Schools reaches the whole child through music.

One Stop Hip-Hop Shop explores history, poetry, social issues, culture and music. The students also studied the main tenets of hip-hop – dancing, DJing, grafitting and emceeing. They examined rap’s predecessors, hip-hop artists’ messages and the creation of self-expressive works through their participation in Music Doing Good in Schools.
