Lyric Genius

Submitted by Trevor Black –

“LYRIC GENIUS” was a fall night program we ran to get kids who were less interested in MAKING music more involved.

HOW TO: Members split into teams, and then answer questions on how to interpret lyrics from artists they like. (All of ours were from the teen’s suggestions.) Some questions are “voting style,” where each team interprets a lyric, and then the group chooses the best answer. Teens are encouraged to think critically about their favorite artists messages or clever wordplay. (note: not all of the linked videos are clean versions. check ’em out yourself beforehand to be sure…sorry 🙂 

Here are some links to our sessions, with details below:
