GRAMMY Museum and Rock & Roll Forever Foundation present: The Evolution of Sampling


Take a trip through the history of sampling and gain a deeper understanding of this musical and technological practice. Using mixed media, students will explore information-assimilating and mood-manipulating byproducts of sampling. While kickin’ it artists such as Wu Tang Clan, students will compare and contrast one of their tracks to the original song being sampled. Using the cumulative knowledge of the day, things will get hands-on as our learners use an online techtool to use “samples” in their own songs.


Age Group: Grades 9 – 12
