Fawn really challenges you as a student. She is always supportive on your best and worst days. She teaches many different singing techniques and pushes you to go outside of your genre of singing.

Online 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

Very comfortable, laid back and unintimidating interaction. If you are thinking about playing sitar I strongly recommend you make arrangements to have at least the first lesson in person if possible. He is a very experienced professional and willing to adapt to your individual needs.

Bernard personalised our lessons to my level of knowledge and made sure that I was growing even though I was a complete newbie.

He's really encouraging and is always giving me feedback on areas I can improve.. These are things I wouldn't have picked up on myself!

I can see improvement already, and look forward to future lessons with him.

Thanks Bernard

Bernard has been a blast to work with, couldn’t recommend him more

Brindha Kanniah -.
It has been a delight taking lessons with Omar. The sitar is a foreign and old instrument, and Omar was very patient with getting me acclimatized to the instrument itself - all the nuts and bolts of putting the instrument together, tuning and playing the strings. Omar adapts very well to my pace of learning, and teaches with depth, instead of rushing through material. Lessons are always fun and easygoing, and I leave with not just technical knowledge, but with also a feel for the background and vibes of Indian classical music.
Grant
Omar is an amazing teacher! He has taught me a lot about the the history and how to properly play the sitar. Highly recommend learning from him if you are interested in the sitar : )
David Hines
Omar is very knowledgeable and able to convey that knowledge in an effective and efficient way.

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.

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.

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.

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!

"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."
