Mindfulness time.
Mentorship time.
Music time.

Support your child in building confidence, and self-regulation skills through creativity and authentic expression. 

When we were children we used to sing, dance and make up songs about anything we could think of. We didn't care about how we sounded. We didn't care about what we said. All we cared about was having fun. We felt courage in our creation, freedom in our expression, and joy in our hearts. Allow me to support you in rediscovering your courage, passion, joy, and freedom through music. You don't need experience. You don't need any "musical ability." All ages and levels welcomed.

There's a song within your heart waiting to be heard, that's why it has a beat!

My name is Elizabeth and I’m a Professional Mentor at Friends of the Children.  I participated in one of SEL Hip-Hop's Songwriting Workshops with a few coworkers and some of our program youth.  I figured I’d be in the room to help support the youth I was with, and I had no intention of saying much, let alone sharing my free verse.  Right away, Malik set the tone by asking and remembering all our names and what kind of music each of us enjoyed.  The room was instantly comfortable and fun, allowing each of us to be exactly who we are.

What stood out to me as the session continued, was how Malik consistently and authentically gave each person in the room a voice.  The youth I was with is pretty shy, and soon she was raising her hand, offering ideas for our group rap song. I, at first reluctant, found myself fully engaged and having a great time.  My youth and I swapped our rap verses and got up and shared them with the group!  I did not see that coming.  When the session was over, we were still humming the songs and tapping the beat.

Whether you have a spark for music making or you just want a few hours of fun, Malik’s workshops leave you feeling part of something special.

My name is Estefania, I am the Bilingual Education Program Coordinator at FriendsPDX. For me personally, I was a little nervous at first to do the workshop because poetry isn’t one of my strengths, but Malik made it super easy to get comfortable. 


Aside from the workshop that was fun and engaging the entire time, Malik had such positive, fun, welcoming, yet calm, and peaceful energy about him. His engagement with youth was incredible, from the very social youth to the timid youth, he did great with everyone. He was encouraging and provided such a great space for the students and adults.

Virtual Songwriting Sessions


Virtual Beat Making Sessions

SEL Hip-Hop’s Songwriting Workshops use writing as a tool to empower students to embrace creation without limitation. With six distinct lessons diving in to everything from the art of storytelling, to song structure and more – songwriting sessions equip students with both the technical and interpersonal skills to express themselves with confidence and creativity. With a beginner-friendly curriculum, Malik makes songwriting simple – utilizing games and tested frameworks to make the creation process intuitive, inviting and fun.


Private Coaching

SEL Hip-Hop’s beat making sessions take students on a six week journey through rhythm and melody. With programing based in Ableton Live – a leading music industry digital audio workstation – students gain the skills to confidently create music in the same program used by artists like Kanye West, Timbaland, Skrillex, Kenny Beats and more. Students leave the six week program with not only a catalog of originally produced music, but the confidence and practical knowledge to freely express themselves through sound. 


Group Coaching (coming soon)

Private Sessions allow students to work with Malik one-on-one each week and receive hands on guidance as they work to create their musical masterpiece. Receive creative coaching in real time as Malik helps you unlock your potential and become the greatest version of yourself. A judgment-free zone, experiment, grow and push your creative limits with Malik holding you up and providing feedback and encouragement along the way.

Group Sessions connect you with a community of like-hearted people to flow with you throughout your journey. The perfect opportunity to create within a community, the Group Sessions allow you to learn with Malik LovesYall each week in a supportive and inspiring environment. With six weekly coaching calls and creative sessions, interactive workbook, and a built in telegram group – the group sessions are a great way to build a creative community dedicated to the full expression of their most authentic selves.
