Music Notes at Hamilton

Music Notes is an educational music company founded by Jimmy Pascascio and LaMar Queen, two middle school teachers in South Central Los Angeles. Their goal is to increase student engagement in school by providing high quality educational music and videos to educators and their students. 

Mr. Queen came to Hamilton School in the beginning of December to provide teachers training on how to write songs.  The teachers learned about beats and measures, counting bars and syllables, and practiced writing our own "College and Career Ready" lyrics.  They practiced their rapping skills and performed for each other. They were also trained to teach students how to write science and social study content related rap lyrics. 

Hamilton students wrote songs and practiced over the following two weeks. 

Jimmy, LaMar, and Mr. D came back to Hamilton School in the end of December to host "Hamilton School's First Annual Rap Battle".  Classes rapped original songs about electricity, explorers, communities, and more.

The winning classes are in the rappers next music video.

At the end of the day, students and families were treated to an educational rap concert by Music Notes.
