I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.

Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

A+mazing! I've been to several Take Lesson Instructors and as an advanced student, I had the best experience with Fawn. Fawn is an expert in her craft. Results are fast and effective. She is organized, to the point, and efficient. She knows her stuff! Also, very nice and uplifting. Thank you, Fawn! :)
Miriam and Allie
We can not express how grateful we are to have Fawn for our daughters coach! She is sounding fantastic on both piano and voice! Thanks Fawn!

Here is the BEST Vocal coach ever. Allie has improved so much working with Fawn and her confidence is soaring. She tried out for a small part on a theatrical play and got one of the lead roles. Thank you Fawn, we are eternally grateful!
Gregory King
A most excellent piano teacher. Fun, patient, talented, a great communicator with a profound impact on my improvement. Never though online lessons would work, but they do and Fawn is fantastic!

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

The first class was very good. We covered a good amount of ground. There's only so much an instructor can do during a first class as the teacher and student get to know each other, however, so I'm looking forward to future classes to get deeper into the lessons

"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.

"Rick an extraordinary teacher. There is a difficult balance to strike between creating a positive, inviting space for collaboration, and holding a high artistic standard that drives you to improve. Rick is great at both. He immediately invested a lot of time in learning more about who I am, what I want to accomplish, and crafting a vision of the best way to support me in getting there.

I intend to work with Rick for a long time and I'm excited, motivated, and inspired by where I think that the work can take us."
