Hello, my name is Anthony Harrison. I am currently a senior at Cherokee High School. After high school, I will be attending Georgia State University in Atlanta. My goal is to end up finding success in the music industry whether it be as an artist or on the business side. My senior project is to make a hip-hop song.
My research topic was the effect hip-hop music has on society. I went in depth on how much of pop culture and the youth in particular are affected by hip-hop. There are positive and negative effects of rap on society but its influence can’t be ignored which I thought was important to know when making the music. I learned that all types of people listen to the genre, from the White House to more rural areas. Hip-hop has a great impact on culture and learning about it over time helped me make my song.
My product is a song that I wrote and mastered under the genre of hip-hop, which relates to my research paper showing its impact on people at large. By understanding the influence music has on people, it helped me know what listeners want to hear in rap music. I’ve recorded at a few different places and instances but I’ve trashed multiple songs before getting it how I liked it. Also, at times it was difficult to find ideas and inspiration for songs but over time they would come.
My senior project topic directly relates to the career field I have chosen. Learning how to structure songs to make a good product is something I wasn’t sure I could do. In the future I’d like to do this for a living or be a talent manager for a record label. This project has motivated me to really focus on this as a career and has shown me my abilities. I think this has greatly prepared me for after high school and college.
Senior project has helped me with time management and putting together a good product. Not only have I gained those skills, it has also pushed me toward achieving the career I’d like to have. Thank you for your time.
