Private Hip Hop & Rap Teacher

As a professional hip hop lyricist/ Songwriter/ Performer, Music Producer and Showcase Organizer with seventeen (17) years of hard knock studies and ground-work interactions. In addition, the opportunity to engage in discussions with music executives such as Andre Harrell and Richard Spoon to entertainment attorneys like Carmen Giordano esq., Gabriel J. Marous esq. and Scot Fishman esq.

Teaching is a a gift and sharing is my passion. I have adopted this business motto from John Tisch and his book "Chocolate by the pillow isn't Good Enough". So, learning from me will save you more time and money than consulting with an attorney.

And giving you the lessons you need to become a successful independent hip-hop artists and producer is my alternate goal. What are you waiting for? Join me and learn-to-earn by doing what you love.

Private 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

The first class was very good. We covered a good amount of ground. There's only so much an instructor can do during a first class as the teacher and student get to know each other, however, so I'm looking forward to future classes to get deeper into the lessons

We can not express how grateful we are to have Fawn for our daughters coach! She is sounding fantastic on both piano and voice! Thanks Fawn!

Here is the BEST Vocal coach ever. Allie has improved so much working with Fawn and her confidence is soaring. She tried out for a small part on a theatrical play and got one of the lead roles. Thank you Fawn, we are eternally grateful!
Gregory King
A most excellent piano teacher. Fun, patient, talented, a great communicator with a profound impact on my improvement. Never though online lessons would work, but they do and Fawn is fantastic!
Forena
When I began my Masters in Music, the university told me to find someone that I wanted to work with one on one. I decided to approach Fawn because of her specialty in improv, Jazz, her knowledge of a variety of styles and her experience as a vocalist. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She helped me to feel confident approaching Jazz and I will always be grateful. Fawn is brilliant! I enjoy every lesson and continue to improve and lean new skills from her! Highly recommend Fawn

Drew
Rick an extraordinary teacher. There is a difficult balance to strike between creating a positive, inviting space for collaboration, and holding a high artistic standard that drives you to improve. Rick is great at both. He immediately invested a lot of time in learning more about who I am, what I want to accomplish, and crafting a vision of the best way to support me in getting there.

I intend to work with Rick for a long time and I'm excited, motivated, and inspired by where I think that the work can take us.
Lucas
More than just hip hop and rap instruction. My lessons with Rick quickly turned to one of the best mentorships I have had. Gained lots of very pertinent knowledge in music and culture as well as self help, mental health and overall dedication to craft. 10/10
Blake Mischley
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.

Online Hip Hop & Rap Teacher

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...shatter them. Singers are complex people with complex instruments, and no matter what our expertise level, the DESIRE

"As a former student, I can honestly say that Rick Chyme is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He not only has a deep understanding of hip-hop as a craft and an art form, but he is also highly motivated to help his students become better individuals. His exercises that he assigns are quite diverse, and are designed to challenge students in a variety of areas. That said, they are extremely rewarding and will help students not only develop as artists, but also help them lead healthier and more fulfilling lives (I still practice many of Rick's routines and principles to this day).

Rick is more than just an instructor. He is someone who will serve as a coach, mentor, and friend for his students. I can't recommend him enough."
