Now Offering Rap Lessons on Lessonface

I’ve recently teamed up with the excellent Internet-based music lesson company Lessonface!

I will be offering an in-depth analysis of your track for $25. You would send me a track, and then I’d send you back an email with tips and advice on how to make YOUR style more clear and direct. I wouldn’t be teaching you how to rap like another rapper; I’d make your style the best you can be. I’d also include some mp3s and videos to demonstrate exactly what it is I’m talking about, so there’s no confusion.

I can also do a half-hour video chat lesson for $30. If you’d be interested, email me at, and we can set something up.

You can expect feedback on:
-rhymes (schemes, length, position, number, order)
-Slang (how to make new slang by building on old slang and associations)
-How to rap on the beat
-What’s happening next for rap musically

Hit me up!
