I teach rapping to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals.
During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally.
Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing).
Learn how to do the Singer's Formant, "Squillo" (that "ringing" sound of professionals).

Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach singing than eat ...

Carl took the time to get to know me, and began to feel so comfortable with him. It was perhaps the best experience I have ever had with a teacher for singing. I received great information and techniques.

Hip Hop & Rap highlights and demands excellence in one of my personal favorite aspects of music: rhythm! As a singer who started out as a drummer, rhythm was everything. The complex rhythms in these genres make me come alive as an artist and a teacher. Syncopation, one of the concepts in rhythm can be a challenging thing to understand but it's at the core of every interesting rap vocal. These vocals 'dig into' the music as another instrument in a way that they don't as strongly in other genres. Also the rhyming schemes used by various artists in these genres can be so challenging but SO rewarding when you can master them!

About Kait

Kait K. has been coaching singers of all ages and abilities since 1997. "Every singer has stumbling blocks. It is my passion to help them identify those, understand them and then move past them. Singers are complex people with complex instruments, and no matter what our expertise level, the desire t

Rene is incredibly knowledgeable but that doesn’t prevent him from breaking down the basics to help me as a beginning singer.

He’s very informative, explaining the why and the how, and doing so in a way that’s easy to understand. It’s helping me establish the foundations of musicality while working on the physicality of developing my muscles, mind and body, to be successful with this new skill.

Aside from the art/skill of singing, Rene has been patient and flexible with my nomadic lifestyle, which can be susceptible to weather, connectivity, and a myriad of other disruptions. I don’t wish him another student in my circumstances, but he’s been willing to work with mine!
Tyler
Rene is a great guitar player and a great teacher! He has an incredible ability of assessing where you are currently at in your guitar journey and using that’s information to determine what lessons/knowledge you need in order to achieve your music goals.
Anthony R.
Rene is a talented patient teacher which will give all the tools you need to be a great guitarist. Save yourself months of messing around and book him now! He will teach you anything you want to learn from theory or your favorite guitar riffs.

Rapping:
Using the same techniques I use to teach voice I will help the student wishing to learn to rap . I can teach you how to rap the songs you love or, using my famous song writing techniques, help them write their own.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

"First off, Prophet X is not only a great musician, but also one of the best mentors I've had in my 5 years of rapping. He has encouraged me to write better, perform with excellence and continually up my game in a live audience. His prestigious wisdom is very impactful regarding audio engineering as well. He has definitely been a part of my shaping process as an artist and person. Moreover, his rates are lower than deserved. He deserves to be paid a lot more for his understanding of various topics in the arts."
