Online Hip Hop & Rap Teacher

There aren't too many schools for rapping that I know of. I learned the way most people learn: on the streets of the city they live in. I've listened heavily to records across Hip-Hop history and I practice MCing regularly as part of my work as a song improviser. I combine techniques from Classical Poetry to modern vocabulary to raise the ceiling on what is possible for an MC.

Things you can expect in rap lessons from me...

-Freestyle: we'll build your confidence and toolset for off-the-top rhyming
-Verse-writing: I'll examine your verses and teach you to refine the writing and delivery to help you reach your audience
-Music Theory: most rappers don't even consider this, but I emphasize understanding music and knowing how to improve your technique and writing through deep understanding of poetry and music theory
-Career Advice: I make sure you get the most bang for your buck when you study rap with me

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

good person.
Lawrence
Very comfortable, laid back and unintimidating interaction. If you are thinking about playing sitar I strongly recommend you make arrangements to have at least the first lesson in person if possible. He is a very experienced professional and willing to adapt to your individual needs.

Shin
Great Instructor for someone who really wants to get something out of lessons and not waste time. Fawn has a list of goals that she asks from her students and follows up on the goals and works to hit these goals.
Chester
My son (age 12) has been taking online lessons with Fawn for a few months and has shown tremendous progress playing the piano since Fawn became his teacher. He really enjoys his lessons with Fawn and I can tell he is enjoying music more now than ever. Fawn has shown me that online lessons can work very well and has exceeded my expectations so far!
Billie
Fawn is a great instructor. She teaches all kinds of warms up as well as helped with range improvements. We appreciate her expertise and lessons.

"Fawn is the one! I'm always funnin' with her and say "Fawn is the one who gets things done!" But it's the truth. Fawn is educated, talented and passionate about music and all of us who do it/want it as a career. She isn't just a teacher, she's a career builder. She is attentive to my goals and goes above and beyond to help support my learning and capabilities, pushing me beyond what I thought possible. Yep. Fawn is the ONE who gets things DONE!"

"My experience with Rick was great, and honestly, life-changing. He pushes you out of your comfort zone and creates a perfect environment for growing musically and as a person. With his help, I wrote 10+ songs that I still think of to this day. The small exercises he made me do really gets you in the "creative zone". The confidence in myself to be able to perform, creativity, and work habit that I either learned or improved through the lessons have translated to my actual life. Above all, he's a super chill and caring guy. He wants you to succeed in and out of the studio. Whatever your goals are musically or personally, Rick will help you and be for you."

"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."
