If you’re looking for a rap coach, I’m your guy! I will teach you how to rap and engage your audience in a fun way. I will make learning how to rap extremely simple and entertaining with interactive conversational games of my own creation.

Self confidence is key in the art of rapping, so you can be sure we will be working on that as well!

About Danius M.

Hello, my name is Danius. I also go by the rapper name of Trigga D. My main goal is to help you become a better rapper. Through my rap coaching you will learn how to rap with fun and entertaining conversation games. I was trained to be a rap coach by three of the best rap coaches in the Bay Area: Bennett Roth-Newell and Rahman Jamaal and Mason Lewis (Mace)

In the rap lessons you will learn concepts such as: freestyle rapping, writing rap lyrics, counting rhythm and bars, posture, breathing techniques, vocal warmups and exercises. I will teach you these concepts in a very fun and supportive way that everyone will enjoy. One thing you should know about my rap coaching style is that I like to use the Kiss Method keep it simple stupid what that means is that I like to simplify my rap lessons. I believe that learning to rap should never be complicated I also believe anybody can learn how to rap my philosophy in teaching is keep things simple don’t over complicate things don’t over do things don’t over think things just keep things super simple to the point where anyone can understand

Wow. I was blown away by Danius's lyrical intellect. He's a master of his craft. I've taken a few lessons with Danius and he's been a very influential instructor. Not only did he teach me to develop my flow with conversational games, he also gave me words of encouragement and great feedback which has allowed me to grow as a rapper. I can't recommend Danius enough - he truly is a hip-hop genius and a master instructor. Take a lesson with him!

Danius is a very passionate and patient teacher. He wants to see his students express the inner rock star inside of them! When it comes out he really lets you know! Danius takes something like learning rap, which is hard, and makes it fun. He wants you to have fun and will bring great energy and encouragement to the lesson.

Danius provides excellent training in all of the skills required to become a top notch emcee and lyricist. He showed me how to use rhythmic subdivisions like half notes, quarter notes, eighth and sixteenth notes to spice up the flow of words in a cypher. He demonstrated how to be conscious of breath control to benefit lyrical phrasing. He is a creative and dedicated emcee and has a lot of patience and understanding when working with beginners who are learning about hip hop songwriting. He has produced and released many albums so he knows how each stage of writing, recording, and distribution works, excellent instructor recommended whole-heartedly, deserves six stars out of five!!!

Danius is a great teacher. He makes learning how to rap easy and fun by using a lot of games and repetition, and breaking down everything into steps. He doesn't make learning how to rap complicated. He's super friendly!
