Students will  incorporate the fundamentals of music craft, its deep history, and popular and lesser known forms, such as hip hop, jazz, and world music. 

Through writing and reflecting on your responses to music, you will gain inspiration for and fluidity in your respective craft of choice. For our final group project, you will bring in your own beat, rhythm, and language in creating an original composition. Students at all musical levels will contribute.

  • Baghir Ohlu is a composer/producer and music educator, based in Brooklyn, NY. He grew up between The Middle East and NYC, which played a major role in his perspective on origins of  modern and ancient music. Watching a documentary on the origins of hip-hop while growing up, Baghir could not imagine that he would relocate to NYC one day and have one of the godfathers of Hip-Hop as his landlord. He produced music for some notable artists within the US like Erykah Badu and Phony Ppl and abroad and has held numerous workshops in Indonesia, Bali and Russia.
