Learn the history, learn ow to rap, create flow, write lyrics, rhyme schemes, wordplay, craft metaphors, learn to make beats, sample, and produce bangers.
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

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

Rap and song writing Is my deepest passion and i fell in love with the craft and never looked back. I have been rapping for about 10 years. I have a very deep understanding of all aspects of rapping and song writing. Those include but are not limited to, rhyme scheme, flow, voice inflection, choice of beat, timing, cadence, harmony, word play, metaphors, and subject matter. I love talking about rap and showing anyone my secrets and methods to creating a captivating rap song. I also have a firm understanding if different ways to explain each thing to each individual person regardless of learning differences. I'm not selfish with time and my main priority is making good connections with fellow rappers/song writers and making the best artist and music possible. Making a little bit of money would allow me to invest more of my time into the craft I love and so I am here. I am willing to help anyone of any age or needs. It's all about the love of the music so let's learn how yo make some ...
hello there my name is Tayler and i have a very deep love for rap and song writing. I have been a student of it for 10+ years and am still just as curious as i was when i started. I am very comfortable teaching any aspect of rap. Those aspects include but are not limited to flow, timing, rhyme schemes, transitions, voice inflections, tempo, creativity, metaphors, and alliterations. I am a very patient teacher and understand that everyone learns a little bit different. With my student i will take it as slow as they need and be creative about how i get the lesson across. I will be starting at a fairly low rate because it is about so much more to me than money. I cant wait to hear from you we will learn and have a great positive time doing so.
