Private Hip Hop & Rap Teacher

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 ...

About Carl

I am very high level, but I also love working with beginners. I have studied all the major singing teachers of the last 250 years, and my book, "Sing Batter Fast", includes everything I have learned from them, plus my own singing and teaching experience. During your first lesson I will do a c

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.

Unbelievable. I realized how little I knew. I think you should just send everyone to him.

I loved my lessons with Omar! He's very knowledgable, and not just about the instrument but music in general. He worked with me for about 7 months to help achieve my goal of learning to improvise on the bass guitar. Omar is very easy to talk to and very funny. He knew how to take complicated music theory and really break it down so that I could understand it better. I left each lesson with an assignment, a technique or a song to practice what we learned in that week's lesson.

I feel very comfortable with being able to be at a jam session and play along with the rest of the group. He taught me how to come up with licks using factorials, how to create a solo using modes and adding some flavor to the solos with techniques such as pop and slap or changing the tempo.

Thank you, Omar, for being such a great teacher! I feel much more confident in myself as a bass player because of the time you spent with me and all of the knowledge you departed onto me. I am very appreciative of you for that - thanks again!

Private Hip Hop & Rap Teacher

Probably seems a bit far-fetched, but I am a highly studied rapper who runs my own hip-hop collective.

I write rhymes, produce beats, and bring my conservatory style academic learning to hip-hop. If you want to learn the culture, the rhyme schemes, the science to making hip-hop music if you will, I'm your guy.

It won't be some abstract "na man that don't feel right" type of vague, get you no where lesson. It will be very concrete, defined lessons, to give you the freedom to write dope rhymes and say them in a variety of different styles/feels/and grooves.

About Blake

Hello there! I'm 25 and a graduate of the Eastman School of Music with a degree in Jazz Guitar performance. I currently work full-time as a freelance musician, I play in wedding/corporate bands, jazz groups, hip-hop bands, funk bands, pop bands, original music projects, and I also run a hip-hop/j

Blake is a great instructor. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed right away. He went at the pace I needed (glacial) and encouraged me every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Blake is a seasoned musician with experience in just about every genre imaginable. Whether it's technique, harmony, theory or aural skills, he can explain any seemingly difficult idea in a concise, logical way. With all the knowledge of a conservatory trained guitarist and gigging musician, he's a down to earth teacher who simply loves music and is passionate about sharing it with his students.

Blake is a dedicated teacher who helped me improve right away! I wasn't at all sure what I wanted (or needed) to work on next but he picked up right away what was best for me. So grateful to have worked with him.

Online Hip Hop & Rap Teacher

Rap music, once considered to be a fad, is now over 40 years old. Through the years, rappers have contributed to the form and shape of the music. Each class with your tutor will build your skills on creating a classic form of a rap song. The goal of instruction is for the student to benefit from what has already been established in rap music, so as not to reinvent the wheel and also to develop their own style of artistic expression. The presenter plays piano, drums and percussion, is versed in many different styles of music, and has been rapping for over 20 years. The goal is to help underground rap artists find their voice.

About Tarik

I'm a patient teacher who will teach you in a very organic and comprehensive manner. This a no judgment zone with the goal of making you prolific in your craft.

"Bernard is the man!! Not only is he super chill and easy to work with, but he helped me with all aspects of my music. When I started working with him I was very new to rapping and only had lyrics (not even written to a beat). He helped me with my flow, rhythm, writing to a beat, voice, breathing and his creativity was apparent from day 1. Can’t say enough about how much he helped me develop as an artist."
