What We Do
We partner with schools and youth focused establishments to deliver workshops that are tailored to meet client's specific needs.
Primary school programmes are designed for students in years 5 and 6.
The secondary school programmes are designed for students in years 7, 8 and 9 as enrichments.
We have worked with students that have behaviour difficulties and are struggling in school as well as those already performing well*.
Rap Therapy is suitable for all students including those that have no prior experience of rap.
*We also deliver tailored revision workshops, 1-2-1 workshops, and adult workshops.
Rap Therapy has worked with many establishments, including schools, youth clubs, libraries and summer camps. Recently Rap Therapy was awarded for funding from Unltd which all goes towards the work done within different youth establishments across London.
Having over seven years in the music industry as rappers and songwriters, we aim to target schools with students that are most at risk of being excluded and put them back on the right path, which will effectively avoid a young person from becoming a statistic in prison or a victim of knife crime.
Young people could find themselves back on the right path by having an outlet and learning how to express themselves.
Although our local community in South London was the initial target area, we plan to branch out to similar areas across the UK over these next five years, reaching more young people and challenging them to be creative and positively express themselves.
FOUR WEEK PROGRAMME
The four week programme will challenge young people to be creative and expressive as they work towards either a performance or song recording at the same time as learning interchangeable skills.
The 36 Week enrichment programme will challenge young people to be creative and expressive as they work towards multiple goals some of which include a performance, song recording, music video and revision techniques, they will also receive periodic mentoring sessions.

With his phenomenal wordplay and unique musical flow, he explains through his music what he experiences and has seen on a day to day basis, making him one of the most relatable artists to come out of such an area.”
