Blame it on the Alcohol

This informative, fun, interactive, and educational workshop will encourage professionals to explore the prevalence of alcohol and it’s influences on the music world.

In this workshop, participants are introduced to current trends in the youth culture that promote unhealthy lifestyles and have become “acceptable” in society. The facilitator examines the blatant and subliminal messages directly related to Alcohol in the music that youth are exposed to daily via radio, television, video games, mp3 players and other common entertainment formats.
