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
