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

He took the time to start at my daughter’s level but also to push her to improve as well! He gave good constructive criticism and homework for her to improve faster!
Glenn
Jonathan is great. Very professional and able to work with students of all levels. Focused but flexible. Highly recommended.
Joanna K.
Jonathan cares deeply about his craft. He has taught me how to be a better guitarist. I also have observed him teach many students, including some with disabilities. He tailors his teaching to the student he is working with, and he makes music fun!

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.

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.
Max
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.
Michael
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.

I was able to train with Alice (@AlicjaTheSinger) not too long ago while I was preparing for an upcoming concert performance (I sing "Luther Vandross" tribute concerts). Her training was awesome as she had me concentrate on the basics of "runs", scales, breathing, etc. She's super fun to work with and has a positive attitude. It was clear to see the results after some practice and I couldn't be more pleased with her help and guidance. Her inside information and experience in working with Top Artists in the studio really helped and gave me a head's up as I'm working on my first song/EP!

I highly recommend Alice as your voice instructor!

Regards,
Big Zack aka Luther Vandross

Motivating and inspirational teacher. Fawn truly helped me step up my game as a real estate agent. We worked on my speaking pitch, approach, honesty, believability and listening skills which all worked like magic. Thank you Fawn

Fawn works at the perfect pace, not to slow and not too fast. She keeps you motivated and helps you through challenges and hurdles. Brilliant teacher.
ST, on broadway
I remember being blown away after my very first lesson with Fawn. I learned more in that one lesson than I ever did in 6 months with my other vocal teacher here in NY. ONE LESSON! I thought it would slow down from there, but it hasn't! Every lesson I leave a bit better, a bit stronger, more knowledgable and it is exciting now to be a vocalist! I realize before all those years with other teachers I was a novelist. NOW I AM A BONAFIDE VOCALIST! I was also skeptical of online vs in person lessons, but Fawn doesn't skip a beat! I can't wait to continue growing on this journey with Fawn.

"I found Fawn because my friend has been working with her for 4 years on rap and R&B music. His rapping, writing and singing has improved 500%, so when I needed 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."

"Prophet is just that. A prophet spitting gods bars and teaching in the process. In all honesty, he is a student and master of music, lyrics, and beats, and I will exclusively work with him because of how effective he is. If you need science, he has it. If you need feel, he's got soul. 10/10."

"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 better, 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."
