Mr. Dix (Educational Raps)
In addition to being a rapper, I also am a middle school teacher. Each year I've taught sixth grade, my students and I have filmed music videos for "grammar raps" I've written. I've also recorded an EP with three of my students as the group Pistol Petes. The Pistol Petes and I are currently working on a follow up project. All proceeds from the educational music will go towards my classroom and school.
Released in October of 2015
The EP, Teach 100, was released in conjunction with the Association of Middle Level Educators (AMLE). It consists of the Shamrock News theme song (from the technology/news class I teach), the song "Teach 100", and the last two grammar raps, "Capital Letters Rap" and "Comma Dance."
Released in June of 2015 via Shamrock News
Consisting of Mr. Dix, Koda B, Connor A, and B Rapster, this 3 song EP showcased some of the skills presented in Room 34 of the sixth grade hall way.
The Pistol Petes are currently recording a follow-up project due in the spring of 2016.
