As part of Wyatt Boykin’s time as an English Language Fellow, he has organized a Music Club at Cadi Ayyad University’s American Corner.

The club is designed to expose students to American music, along with the corresponding fashion and culture, while using the English they learn in the classroom.For a recent meeting, Wyatt exposed the students to the blues with a slideshow presentation and discussion of the musical style. Students were encouraged to write and perform their own blues verse.

Wyatt’s student enjoyed listening to and replicating the music of Muddy Waters and B.B. King and found themselves practicing their English skills in a new and unexpected way.
