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.

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.

"I am a songwriter and a singer and I always struggled with pronunciations and rhyming with a beat.
 After working with Fawn® I can tell you that she takes my career and progress very seriously, she is professional and has thought me every minor detail of pronunciations, how to flow on the beat and how to hit and change notes at certain times (even at perfect exact millisecond) and thanks to Fawn® I've learned so much about music, the music biz and my various talents."

"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."

"Fawn is an amazing coach! I went to her originally 3yrs ago for song writing class and we ended up also working on my piano, voice, now I'm working on rapping. I've made friends for a lifetime and had experiences I otherwise wouldn't have had if I hadn't started taking lessons from her. She told me about opportunities I never would have known of and I've not only grown as a musician I've grown as a person as well. You won't regret choosing her as your new music teacher."

"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."
