Workshop: Song Writing, Rap and Performance
Songwriting and Rap Workshop
We work with different song writing and lyric development methods. It is particularly important to me to create a trusting and respectful relationship and atmosphere, which is aimed at strengthening one’s own ability to express oneself.
Furthermore there are instrumentals, chord progressions from existing songs, or the unique musical ideas of the participants. To aid in development and accompaniment, I incorporate beatboxing as an instrumental accompaniment alongside the piano and the guitar. Additionally, I utilize the Loopstation, Ableton Live, professional Mics to create and produce sounds, integrating various instruments for song production within the workshop setting
For all age groups, no previous knowledge required.

Dj Alex D – Apolda mein Block (2024)
As part of the national congress of the organization Lebenshilfe, my task was to develop an empowering song within 2 days with a group of 20 people from different parts of Germany, which should draw attention to problems in the social environment, but at the same time underline the individual strength of each individual and the group.
