Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

Excellent teacher
Catherine
I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

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

Jonathan is incredibly skilled, a great teacher, fun, and very patient with our gregarious and somewhat distracted 9-year old boy. He has creative, tailored teaching techniques, will try new things, but also keeps our son motivated and progressing. He responds perfectly and patiently to my son when he veers off task, and gets him back on task. We are absolutely thrilled and couldn't have found a better teacher.
Jackie G.
My son has special needs related to an anoxic brain injury. This can create frustration with simple things like learning a new chord that feels funny or is difficult to move your fingers to. He always checks in with us to see what concerns we have and then, helps us by offering suggestions on how to make something easier or less frustrating to learn. I think Jonathan does a good job of meeting us where we are. Jonathan is patient with both of us. Today, he talked to my son about practicing communicating so we can understand how to help him learn. He talked to me about it being ok to break away from the timing and to hit chords at the same time as my son so the song can come together.
Jackie G.
Jonathan is flexible and easy to work with. My son has some struggles as a result of an anoxic brain injury. Jonathan is very understanding and patient with my son. He has also helped me with advice and suggestions on how to work with my son. We love the spirit of the ukulele and the good vibes it has.

Miss Fawn's natural, bright, positive, honest and energetic personality creates an ideal learning environment that's comfortable for any student. Whether you're a seasoned professional, or just starting off, Miss Fawn's expertise and natural ability to explain with ease the complexity of singing and inventing tailor made exercises for each individual makes her an ideal mentor and coach. My overall experience thus far with her as my vocal coach has been nothing but a positive and exciting experience. I highly recommend Miss Fawn to anyone who is looking for an excellent vocal coach, piano teacher or songwriting coach. She is excellent in all things music and worth the investment!
Moira
Perfect! Very good teacher! Fawn really builds my confidence. She helps me with. my skills, teaching me. things I had no concept of and also showing me things I never even considered. Really helping me develop my voice and I look forward to working with her more and seeing how far I can take it! She is invested in her students and their success!
Billy G.
Fawn has innovative vocal techniques I have never seen or done before! Often she will create an exercise to my specific needs if I am not getting my placement correct, or understanding something. Because of this, I have had 100% success rate in my vocal improvement. For sure Fawn is the BEST vocal instructor I have ever worked with!
