The Harmon Foundation celebrated it’s 8th sea-son of the How To Listen series, an innovativemusic education program which encouragesyouth to appreciate all aspects of music. This year one of hip-hop’s finest MC’s Talib Kweli, was theMaster Teacher with special guest Martin Luther for the program at Gibson Studios in New York City.100 grade school children sat on the floor of astudio with their legs crossed and attentivelylistened to soulful singer, Martin Luther as he
opened the discussion about how a song is produced.
Martin Luther shared an inspiring story abouthow he started writing church songs at the ageof five and how piano lessons lead him to acareer in music. He stressed to the young people,that if they are interested in music stick with it.The youth were delighted when Talib Kweli cameon the stage. He explained to them that hisbackground in music is non-traditional, his inspirationto become a hip-hop artist came from writingpoetry. For those interested in producing hip-hopmusic, Talib's hip-hop rule #1, "there are no rules,let the music come from your soul. Be originalwith it, music is about a feeling in the soul.”Talib introduced the children to the art of sampling.He played the Nina Simone sample that he usedfor the intro and throughout his hit song "Get By."When the children first heard Nina Simone'svoice, they giggled, they were not use to hearinga voice as distinct as hers. By the time, they heardthe full production the children were surprised athow Nina Simone's voice turned into somethingso cool.To show how much they appreciated Kweli’swork some of the children re-wrote the chorus to“Get By.”This Morning, I woke up/Feeling brand new, I jumped up/Feeling my highs, and my lows/ In mysoul, and my goal’s/ Just to stop cursing, stophurting/ To stop fighting, and start learning/ Tostart loving and start caring/ To get by, just to getby/Just to get by, just to get by…Kweli was so impressed with the re-write that heperformed his song with them.
