About Omar

My passion is sharing music with people.

I love to answer questions and learn things I don't know, I know a good amount about guitar repair, improvised instrument building, how to buy a good instrument and not spend to much, and I have a vast knowledge of obscure instruments, and audio production as well. Feel free to ask me questions, and expect informative non-judgmental answers.

I have spent a lot of time developing as a vocalist, songwriter, composer and producer, which helps me in all aspects of my music and teaching, I'm always looking to learn more. I have played in heavy metal bands, but have also done solo acoustic singer/songwriting stuff, I have produced raw hip-hop but also love old soul and ska tunes. Being well rounded musically and drawing from lots of influences is what makes me a good teacher and shapes me as a m

usician.

As an artist I have been featured on MTV, Rollingstone, BBC, NBC, VOA, ARY, Alt Press, LA times, documentaries and more. I have been playing guitar and recording music since childhood and am a classically trained sitar player and Indian classical vocalist.

I am a great teacher for someone who wants to write songs, or is into Indie, rock, pop, reggae, metal, hip-hop, and electronica.

*** Lesson Details/ What to Expect ***

You can expect a custom, fun and attentive one on one lesson. I am thorough and patient. I expect you to love music and put forth effort. I'm laid back, I will work as fast or as slow as you need. I prefer a total immersion technique and get my students playing right away. This boosts confidence and fosters interest because once a student enjoys playing you don't have to convince them to practice.

By the first lesson you will be familiar with the instrument and it's parts, and playing your first chord.

In 3-6 months you will be playing guitar with a greater knowledge of chords, basic harmony and be able to play scales and songs.

Once you have a foundation of chords we can explore more specific music subjects and lessons will become more personalized: songwriting, guitar tones, musicology, making a DIY record, shredding like a metalhead, I can guide you to help you achieve your goals.

I receive a very large number of student requests everyday, So to keep things organized please keep the following in mind:

Takelessons is a wonderful service that I use to handle all my payments and scheduling. I want to focus on the teaching, so they help with the rest.

I have a 24 hour cancelation policy, please give me at least 24 hour advanced notice, or you will forfeit your lesson credit.

All scheduling changes or time off can be requested right from the website for your connivence. it's super easy!

Use an email that you will actually check to sign up for notifications, it's not spam, it's to help us all stay organized.

Remember to please reserve your spot by paying in advance. (I have a waiting list of people asking me for those super convenient days, and times)

Online students please make sure you have the highest connection speed available to you. This will ensure you get the most out of the lessons.

*** Equipment ***

Please make sure you have your own instrument, and a note book or device to take notes with.

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!

Omar is just the best. Even when I've not practiced as much as I should between lessons I always make sure to go, because he always has so much to teach and I always leave feeling uplifted and excited about music. Omar never makes you feel stupid for asking "stupid" questions, and incorporates a range of methods to make the lessons meaningful. I never thought I'd be able to improvise a blues riff after just a few lessons with him playing backup drums! Omar thinks outside the box and is so adaptable to your needs. He showed me a "bass" he made out of a cast-off guitar with weed-whacker filament as strings for a client with very limited hand motion. Book a lesson with Omar; you won't regret it!

Great instructor. Attentive to your skills and needs/desires as a guitarist. Will teach you both how to play any song you would want to learn, fundamentals, and also will push you while still being positive and encouraging.

Added bonus he has a cute puppy!!!

Private 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.

About Chris

Hi! My name is Chris, but a lot of people call me Luppy (pronounced "loopy"). I am a professional musician in the St. Louis area specializing in jazz as well as performing with my band Sky West Trio (www.skywesttrio.com). I am classically trained but also play by ear. I have years of experience in the music business. I toured the country for 8 years with a band (LP Outsiders) that led to a publishing deal with Windswept Pacific, landing a song on the Three To Tango movie soundtrack, appearing on the Disney Channel Show "2 Hour Tour" with 98 Degrees, and opening for many national acts. We even toured with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy for a year. I also played trumpet on a b-side on Natalie Imbruglia's multi-platinum selling single to "Torn," and did some songwriting with Robbie Nevil (of "Ce La Vie" fame).I also have performed all over the wor

ld including many caribbean islands like Aruba, Barbados, Curacao, St. Maarten and St. Kitts.

I offer lessons to people of ALL AGES! I customize my lessons to focus on the things YOU WANT TO LEARN. My favorite thing to teach is how to play by ear! I can teach you the system that all professional musicians use to be able to play songs instantly after hearing it once. It really is possible with a little practice.

I do also teach the classical repertoire if that is what you are more interested in. For most students, I teach a combination of playing by ear and learning music theory, as well as some classical repertoire.

I have been rapping for ten plus years have charted on Itunes at 12# with Chris rivers and Sadat X and have recorded with multiple multi platinum rappers. I wish to pass what I have learned on. Not only about the art of rap or its history but about the industry as well. I can give you some insights on record deals (ive signed a few not all of them so good) . I would love to meet you.

About Juma

I am an award winning artist who has worked with multiple multi platinum artist, as well as rubbed shoulders with some of the most accomplished musicians in Dallas Fortworth. I have charted on the Itunes chart at 12#.

I want to connect with my students. I think the industry is about who you know and thus networking and learning about what individuals need and expect is paramount. I would also love to talk about the contract side of the rapgame. as the business is the thing that will make you or break you. The music world is a long game not a short one and those who don't stretch before the race starts will cramp up.

I am best suited for beginers who want to learn how to rap and those who are working on their first projects. There seems to be a art to ordering an album and placement of vocals that makes or breaks it for people.

y favorite artists? Notorious B.I.G.,Big Daddy Kane, Eminem,Ludacris,2pac,AZ,Kool G Raps,Loose Ends

"It was great. Prophet is highly educating me with the Lessons. I didn't expect for them to be so good. He's a talented rapper a great teacher and a nice p
erson."

R3fugee
"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 bette
r, 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."

"Bernard is a great rapping coach. My son enjoyed the learning lessons with Bernard and has improved significantly.

Thanks you Bernard for your help."

eeded help with my spoken word and my rapping, I knew who to go to! Fawn is cool. She pulls out of me what I need to succeed. Her skills are on point. It's her perfectionism, enthusiasm and expertise that keep me improving my craft and my end game. She is in on every recording for my new project and I am getting paid now for my talents thanks to her."
