This is the second part of my discussion with Josuël Rogers, a coach who uses music – specifically Hip Hop – to help his students and clients develop self-awareness and confidence. We talked about how music influences our moods (making a playlist for yourself can really help!), how personal sound can be and the power of words (among other things). You can find him at Hip Hop Culture Coaching (https://www.hiphopculturecoaching.com), if you’d like to learn more about the services he offers and the information he has to share.
In the second part of our conversation, we talked about:
- Foley in film and the making of weather sounds
- How your mind associates a type of sound with the weather
- How the “filter” of a microphone changes sound
- Hearing your own voice from a third-person’s perspective
- Randomness and how that influences what we hear
- How the same song can represent different moods for different people
- How personal sound is
- How we fixate on sounds we’re more familiar with (a drummer focuses on the drums in music, for instance)
- The best kept secret about making playlists to help us experience the world in the way we want to
- Repetition is key – words matter (“impossible” puts a block on things immediately, etc.)
- Everything around you is a word
- How a hockey coach learned to better coach his team through Neuro Linguistic Programming
- Your brain not registering negatives
- What he’s working on right now – coaching
- More information about his podcast
- Where his podcast can be found: podcast.hiphopculturecoaching.com – and on Apple, Spotify, etc.
