“Feedback from my clientele, tells me that a lot of my success over the years is due to my background as a rock, R&B, concert, club singer; and my drive to accomplish the needs of today’s recording artists,” says Brad…who has worked with Anita Baker, The Bangles, Quincy Jones, Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), Expose', Marq Torien of the Bullet Boys, … “I was a 60s rock singer and guitarist; and I have been singing on mics, sound reinforcement equipment, and recording equipment since I was 14 (50 years).”
In 1987, not long after he launched his own studio after years as a partner of Seth Riggs, Music Connection Magazine ran an article about his unique approach to microphones and electronic elements. He explained his desire to make sure that students learn to sing well with mics, so they didn't over-sing and that their emotional nuances would shine through.

Brad is among the best voice coaches today. Using techniques honed through his extensive experience along with his trained ear, he helped me get back what I thought was lost forever. He's not just a great coach, but one who knows what is good therapy for the voice. Brutally honest, Brad doesn't sugar-coat ... he is helping you as the performer be the absolute best, and being honest is what we all need when training. Brad delivers results as long as you put in the work. He also helps you to learn the difference between singing and yelling ... there's a difference! I could not be more blessed to have reconnected with Brad. He is a master of his craft!

Prophet was real helpful! Well worth the money. Dude dropped some heavy knowledge on me that really related to where I'm at with my music.
Whatever level you're on he'll be able to get a feel for that and give you info that will help you improve what you got.

Honestly I wasn’t impressed with his skill set and he wasn’t very clear with the points he made on how to rap. Also a little condescending I would not recommend having Prophet as a teacher especially if you’re advanced in hip hop.

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 how to open up and knuckle down at the same time!

I am currently a full-time YouTube Creator, sidelining in cover bands and a solo act. Teaching is a big part of what I do online so I see my work as a private teacher as 'research' for the lessons I create. Although I'm firmly grounded in a classical music training, there's nothing you can ask about that I won't try to figure out. My favorite thing about teaching is using unexpected questions to develop new ideas that I then integrate into my original compositions. Check out my intro to the B
lues Raga video if you want to hear a good story about what I mean.

Recently I've had several articles published by the TakeLessons Blog. Check out my most recent post here.

I've taught rap for a decade, my students have gone on to release albums, and even perform at SXSW! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to vary your rhymes very cleverly, and as time goes on you'll be able to tell your story in the same way that Eminem & 2Pac do. I specialize in all kinds of rap, and have the following tools available for your lessons: microphones, recorded lessons, and a huge catalogue of recorded rap songs for you to use to learn from the best with. Still haven't messaged me? C'mon, what are you waiting for?! Ha, talk to you soon!

About Martin
"Don't hear the song how YOU hear it; hear your song how your LISTENER will hear it!"<—My first lesson for making rap; that one's free ;)

Yo! My name's "Maestro" Martin Connor, and for the past 7 years, I've spent every minute of every day working with rap and hip hop not "just" as a musician, but as a journalist, author, scholar, DJ, and performer...and even a concert performer & artist manager sometimes! I now take all of this knowledge from rap, and use it to teach students how to make the best damn rap out there. I've taught over 50 students more than 150 lessons through an engaging 1-on-1, 1-hour format on Skype, and those videos can be seen on my YouTube channel (which has over 700 subscribers and more than 3000 hours of watching!) Because I've written multiple books, released many albums, and gained over 30 million lifetime view
s on my website RapAnalysis.com, there is no problem for a beginning rapper that I have not encountered and overcome.

So DAMN! You still haven't messaged me? C'mon, what are you waiting for! Ha, talk to you soon!

Martin has a very analytical way of breaking down lyrics into their most basic parts and explaining them in a way anyone can understand. He has helped me improve my music greatly in a way that didn't affect my vision or the direction of my art.

Martin is so knowledgeable and helpful. He spent a lot of time working over my music and gave me top-notch advice. Moreover, he took what I was doing seriously and engaged with me as an artist. Working with him both taught me a lot and also boosted my confidence. If you're looking to develop as a rapper, there's no one I could recommend more highly.

I am very well experienced in performing many current and old rap hits, including Look at Me Now, Rap God, The Real Slim Shady, and more.

About Brianne
Hello! My name is Brianne and I am a professional performer, actress, and vocalist. Originally residing in LA, I decided to further my education and experience by enrolling in the jazz voice program at CSU Sacramento.

From as early as elementary school, I began singing and performing in my church choir and musicals. Once I got older, I began to take vocal lessons at Van Tuyl Music Academy in Huntington Beach, at which I continued to do for 6 years. At the age of 16, I began performing as a professional lead singer of the wedding and entertainment band High Altitude. I currently perform as a lead singer of ESSEX, an entertainment band that is well known in the Sacramento region.

Though voice is my primary focus of study, theatre and musical theatre is another huge passion of mine. Throughout my high school years, I have also been
in a variety of professional theatre productions, playing Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Witch in Into The Woods, And a dancer/ Marguerita in Steven Sondheim's West Side Story.

In the middle of high school, I became more intrigued by the jazz genre, and the beauty and complexity that lies in a vocal jazz ensemble. While performing with Downey High School Epic Jazz Choir, we performed and often placed in the top 3 at the Monterey, Folsom, Reno jazz festivals. We also had the honor of performing at the JEN jazz festival held in New Orleans, Louisiana. I currently perform with CSUS Voices under the direction of Gaw Vang Williams. Last winter, we had the honor of sharing the stage with the very well established vocal jazz group New York Voices.

Though I mainly sing contemporary music and RnB, I truly love all styles and can teach students the foundational and essential vocal technique that can be applied to any style of music you want to sing and perform. I can also give guidance on how to read music at a beginning and intermediate level and how to play the ukelele and piano as an accompaniment to singing. As a musician, it is very important to me that a student developes their knowledge of music as well as their own beautiful and unique sound. By working together, I know we can achieve it! :)

Rap is more than making words come together if it’s something that really sparks an interest in you or something that you believe you are destined to do ... Than so be it

I take the time out to help others achieve what they are bound to have success in because they took their time out & paid to do what they believe is important to achieve .

About Sam
Hi my name is Taru. Ive been rapping since i was 15 thats 17 years of hip hop under my belt. Im from southern Colorado and attended LA Film School. I will be attending Berkly to further my education and help jump of my label into a Brand. Like all young men who grew up in a poor neighborhood i was cought up with the wrong friends and made desicions that i regret to this day, but my desire to be a hip hop artist always stayed with me so no matter what i went through in life i was there rapping about it. One day i got so fed up with all these distaction around me i decided to cut off all ties to the outside world as far as not being beneficial for me and told myself right then that i need to do somerhing with my life...i was headed nowhere and was headed towards the wrong path messing with these people who use me or dont give one bit of lov
e to me.

I had ti stop doing what i was doing and started from scratch....i started recording myself and posting my fliws all over social media and started making cds and selling them at city functions like car shows and stuff. I knew i had to make big moves and prove to the people that my past wasnt part of me any more. So thats when i decided to go to school. I starded by attending L.A.F.S and joined a program that certifies you in music production, i had two kids which inspred me forever and gave me a new vision as to what life gives me in return....... inspiration to others who been through the same or worse. We all can be somebody regardless our past or mistakes, i want to open minds and hearts with my music and since the most knowledgable way to use your knowledge is to pass it on. So here i am making a long struggling story short to tell you that not only did i apply myself to the music but im from the setting where hip hop was born. My wife and kids and number one God first and all things just fall together. Music is my life literally...let me teach you how to express yourself in one of the most beautiful ways words can be expressed, i will show you many things that took time for me to learn and pick up, but can teach yall through these lessons almost everything i know. God bless.
