Family Power Music offers workshops that help participants discover and nurture their personal creativity. Our facilitators reference their original work, performance history, and creative processes to inspire the artistic impulses of others. Our programs emphasize creative outlets as healthy means to channel emotions and process life events. We integrate aspects of hip-hop and poetry to convey elements of literary craft in a format that keeps students engaged.
“We worked with Family Power Music for a week-long intensive at Harborside Academy called “Creative Expressions.” The instructor’s relaxed personality and positive energy motivated our students to explore writing talents they may not have known they even had. Our students loved his presence, and so did the cooperating teachers!”
Elizabeth Jania (Harborside Academy – Kenosha, WI)
“Working in an under-resourced school, our students lack access to courses that delve into aspects of Language Arts they feel a connection to. Having Family Power Music visit my Ethnic Studies classroom allowed students to practice creative writing skills that were later utilized for research projects. Family Power Music is an awesome ally to educators seeking creative workshops for students!”
Angelina Cowan (James Denman Middle School – San Francisco, CA)
“Family Power Music enriched the lives of our middle school students challenged with language development in English. The facilitator engaged students with his own story of the artistic process, complete with relevant artifacts and a refreshing element of humor. Our poets and writers were thoroughly motivated and proud of the work they created. Students were left wanting to do and know more.”
