Students register for only one course. New York Summer Intensives are rigorous, and students must expect to do substantial work daily in preparation for class. Taking other college courses and/or working a full-time job while you are enrolled in a
summer intensive course is not recommended. You may be able to hold a part-time job, depending on your ability to manage your time and responsibilities.
All courses will meet for four hours daily four days a week, Monday through Thursday. In some courses, field trips may be scheduled outside of regular hours. Each course taps the resources of New York City in its own way, but students will have opportunities to take advantage of these resources with their peers and
on their own.
Mixin' the City: Hip-Hop in Practice and Play
Instructor: Robert "DJ Rob Swift" Aguilar and Sam "Rabbi Darkside" Sellers
This course is an immersion in New York City's hip-hop culture, in which students explore its origins and development through firsthand discovery and hands-on learning. Students learn the technical fundamentals and history of DJing, including mixing, scratching, and beat juggling. They visit significant cultural landmarks and institutions, attend events, and hear from guest presenters who are leaders in the field. They experience the elements of hip-hop while considering how they can be used as tools for teaching, learning, and empowerment and develop a hip-hop lens for close-reading the world, guided by the instructors’ expertise, both canonical and empirical. This course is co-taught by hip-hop practitioners who are passionate about their craft and their community and are committed to arts education and cultural stewardship, paying the utmost respect to predecessors while pushing boldly into the future. The approach will be experiential as well as analytical, offering many opportunities for students to delve into their musical, visual, and literary interests through creative and collaborative projects.
