About This Program
Rock the Mic
Bomani’s residency walks students through the exciting world of hip-hop songwriting while writing verses about subjects they study in class. In Rock the Mic, students receive in-depth instruction on elements of creative writing, using simile, metaphor and rhyme to structure a song written in the pattern of a well-written essay.
Typically, residencies range from $2,500 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
"Bomani was OUTSTANDING, today! The kids loved him, the second graders all lined up to take his autograph!"
"Positive, Motivating, Challenging. Bomani gave students the power of language."
