The way I write, perform and in general think has conformationally changed with Rick. I haven't been the best student as I felt the continuity weekly really helped. He gets to know you as a person and not a number. Rick is genuinely interested your best interest and it shows by his actions.

Do not hesitate to book a session or two or three with Rick! He is currently working with our son to encourage growth as a teenage rapper and as a good person overall. Rick is patient, kind, understanding, and has connected with my son. He looks forward to waking up each Saturday to spend an hour with Rick. What teenager does that? Rick's special talents make it easy.
Rick's talents don't just lie with music, he has a vested interest in you as a person. His teaching background and mental health expertise make the lesson much more than expected. We look forward to many more Saturdays with Rick. Thank you for sharing your talents, story, and heart with our son. We are blessed!

Chris has been spot-on in figuring out exactly where I'm starting (lots of musical training but have been away from an instrument for ~10 years). And he makes it fun - the take-home practice exercises right from the start made me appreciate that I'm working towards playing songs. Would highly recommend!

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

Best instructor I ever had.
robin
Rene is incredibly knowledgeable but that doesn’t prevent him from breaking down the basics to help me as a beginning singer.

He’s very informative, explaining the why and the how, and doing so in a way that’s easy to understand. It’s helping me establish the foundations of musicality while working on the physicality of developing my muscles, mind and body, to be successful with this new skill.

Aside from the art/skill of singing, Rene has been patient and flexible with my nomadic lifestyle, which can be susceptible to weather, connectivity, and a myriad of other disruptions. I don’t wish him another student in my circumstances, but he’s been willing to work with mine!
Tyler
Rene is a great guitar player and a great teacher! He has an incredible ability of assessing where you are currently at in your guitar journey and using that’s information to determine what lessons/knowledge you need in order to achieve your music goals.

Online Hip Hop & Rap Lessons

Rap music has roots in the Bronx, New York, where this style of music became popular during the 1970s. As part of the hip hop genre and culture, rap music experimented with rapping, beatboxing, scratching records, and sampling beats. Over the years, rap music has grown and transformed as different styles emerged, such as gangster rap and East Coast vs. West Coast varieties.

If learning how to rap is something you’re interested in, it might be time to sign up for our online rap classes. At TakeLessons, we feature all kinds of rap lessons online for students of all ages and skills. Whether you want to learn to spit your own rhymes or take your rap skills to the next level, our private online classes can help you achieve your music goals.

The Benefits of Rap Courses Online

...

When it comes to mastering the art of rapping, where do you begin? Do you start with writing rhythms? Or do you focus on your lyrics? And do you need a musical background to excel? Allow a private rap teacher to help. When you sign up for our rap lessons online, you will receive one-on-one coaching. Your instructor will assess your music level, inquire about your goals, and create a road map to success.

Sometimes learning in a big classroom setting can be overwhelming. Maybe the class is moving too quickly, or perhaps you’re stuck on a certain subject. But when you sign up for private online rap classes, you don’t have to worry about any of that. Your teacher will give you all the attention you need to work through your problem areas and find your strengths.

Why Take Online Rap Lessons

Why are so many students taking online classes these days? Because it makes learning easy! Gone are the days when you had to find the time to pack up your school supplies, catch a ride to class, avoid traffic, find parking, meet with your instructor in person, and then drive home. With online learning, you can sign on and immediately start learning wherever and whenever you have access to the internet. It not only saves you time but gives you the freedom to learn on your watch.

Here at TakeLessons, our goal is to make learning a new subject convenient and hassle-free. We know that some students have free time in the evening, while others can only study on the weekends. That’s why we let you choose a teacher who can accommodate your schedule. Once you determine a class time, all you need is a laptop, smartphone, or computer and web camera to get started.

Find Your Online Rap Teacher Today

You’ve already decided you want to take rap lessons online, so now it’s time for the fun part! Browse our selection of certified teachers and pick the one that best suits your needs. You can learn about their experience and read reviews from previous students. Once you have selected your preferred teacher, you will be one step closer to achieving your rap dreams.
