    Rap School: Learn to Rap like Eminem, find your voice and inner confidence.

    I Specialize in teaching young people to Rap. From beginner levels all the way through to having a successful music career. My name is Gavin and I'm a successful rapper, producer and bestselling author. Some may think that Rap is about ego but in reality, rap is about finding your true identity through your voice. The process of learning a skill that has been officially categorized by ‘John Hopkins University’ as the second most creative thing your brain can do other than fly a jet plane, builds humility and character.

    Rap saved my life and took me from hospital bed with shattered confidence to the big stage with Eminem, from dreams to the big screen. The main benefit of learning to rap is that it makes your mind work faster than most, you become an incredible problem solver and improviser. Your confidence grows day by day until you are able to do amazing things with words.

    The techniques, games and skills you will learn in this course will not just be beneficial for your social life, by helping you think quicker and feel more comfortable in situations, but they are applicable in many careers and scenarios. The skills you gain at Rap School can lead to huge, exciting careers. Not necessarily just a career in rap, I've helped young male and female rappers write their first books, write film scripts, release comic books and develop stand-up comedy careers.

    The ability to rap has made me a better writer and allowed me to have a successful career in music as well as careers in journalism, literature and film all from techniques and methods nurtured in my rhyme books and with a microphone rather than in a class room. With Rap I found my voice, my identity, it taught me that extremely hard skills were easy and just a matter of time but that I was capable of anything. Not everyone can rap and when you can rap as good as I am going to teach to rap, better than your heroes, then it will make you a special individual able to think fast, process more information and think 5 steps ahead.

    If you want to discover your voice, your true confidence and want to see what you are really capable of by doing something that is incredible fun then this is then this class is for you.

    With Rap school you will:

    1. Learn to Freestyle
    2. Learn Ride the beat
    3. Learn rhyme structure
    4. Learn how to compile rhymes
    5. Learn how to Flow
    6. Learn Multi-Syllabics
    7. Learn how to write Punchlines
    8. Learn the art of Battle Rap
    9. Learn Internals rhymes schemes
    10. Learn how to write songs
    11. Learn how to rap live
    12. Learn how to sing
    13. Learn how to record
    14. Learn how to Double Time (fast rap)

    Along the way you will find your voice, your style and true inner confidence and when you do it will be magical, and nothing will be able to stop you achieving at anything you want to do.

    Extra information

    Buy a big pad, a small pocket note pad and a few pens. Keep them on you at all times as these are your rhyme books and will become your companions. You'll need them for every lesson.

    Once graduated from the course I will help you record songs, book gigs and get you started on your path but it’s important that you are realistic. This course, while being fun and exciting, is not easy and you can’t advance to the next stage of the course until you clearly have got the concepts and skills of each section down. So the time it takes to complete the course will depend on how much you practice and how much fun you are having learning. If your having fun and believing in yourself in the long term then you will complete it faster and like many of my other students you will gain success.

    About Me

    I have been teaching and mentoring youths from all over the world through online courses and 1 to 1 tutoring for over 10 years and I have seen incredible results. From helping a young lad with learning difficulties to release his first comic book to helping a teacher suffering from depression to write and release their first novel. A big part of my work is showing my students in real time action that they can do anything. When they realise this, there is nothing better.

    I have had a much publicized and epic career that stands as an example that anyone of any age can achieve whatever they set their minds to. I have overcome much adversity to achieve all of my dreams. Depsite being laughed at, beaten and crippled by circumstance I have taken ideas from the bedroom to big stage, from dream to the big screen and I now dedicate my life to helping others unearth the confidence they require to achieve their goals.

    I was an average student at school but bullying and lacklustre teaching severely ruined my high school experience and yet I went on to become a best selling author before 30. I believe that for skills to be learned the experience of learning them has to be enjoyable, not boring and not so complicated the concepts don't stick. I feel that school is losing an inevitable battle against technology and yet they don't upgrade the curriculum or speak a modern language that captivates the students attention. That's where I come in. My confidence classes are a far better way to improve grades because with confidence you want to learn you want to improve but not if the material in front of you is boring and out of date.

    I don't believe in teaching anything that is a waste of time. I only teach what absolutely works with honesty because I want my students to get good fast so that they can feel good and have fun with it, that's when they start soaring and that's when we commonly see that the rest of their grades soar too, because they now have something that makes them feel that they are great. My students get better because I believe in them and by achieving each stage of my courses they grow in confidence and believe in themselves.

    I believe that when a young person masters a unique skill it changes them forever. It is quite beautiful to witness the kids I have taught who have come from nothing and been doubted only to become incredible at one of the hardest skills in the world to perfect. At that point they can do anything. Writing a book isn't as big a task when you spend all your down time having fun with words.

    Most youths don't know how to express themselves and get distracted by negative things in times of boredom. To be able to perfectly express how you feel inside and ask the right questions of yourself in order to write them down. These are incredible qualities to gain and they are sorely lacking in schools.

    In my lessons there are no sums or tricks to confuse you the student or make them feel dumb. I talk clear and straight and in their language. There are mostly fun learn as you go rap exercises and games that you will want to play every spare moment you have.

    I am very honest with my students and install in them integrity and humility. My classes are aimed at helping my students grow in confidence, discover their voice and develop the tools to express themselves. I teach life lessons inside my classes, giving real life examples of how ego only ruins hard work but how passion, drive and simply doing what you love can take you as far as you want.

    I come from a family of strong woman and believe in equal rights for everyone. I treat every student as I wished I was treated at school, with respect and care. I leave all my students with the knowledge that It doesn't matter who you are or where you are from, if you believe in yourself nothing can stop you.

    SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
    English Translation: contact me please SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hIT or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you already play the guitar or piano, you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antennas are always open :-) and for some it is a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to share my knowledge about how to write a song with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

The vocal technique (mixed voice) that I will teach you, will allow you to interpret your favorite songs that you can hear on the radio with ease and fluency and by accompanying you your guitar will entertain and impress your friends in the evenings! My goal will be to reach yours! :) Organic : A trumpet player with the Pully band for many years, I gained my musical experience at the Pully Music School. I was passionate about acoustic guitar at the age of 14 and I trained myself as an autodidact with my already acquired musical knowledge. I then wanted to improve my vocal technique and it was through the vocal programs of Brett Manning (Singing Success) and the advice of his associates that I could improve my voice considerably. I am currently a member of the IVTOM International voice teacher of mix to train me more precisely on the scientific aspect of the voice.

    Music Theory and Composition: Inspiration and Technique
    What do you love to listen to? How do you create music that expresses the music that has deeply influenced you? The "how do you create that" is where technique, or music theory, shapes what compels you. There are a variety of techniques because there are a variety of sound possibilities (jazz, rock, classical, etc.). "In order to create that" music in your head, the basics of music have to be learned: pitch and rhythmical relationships. The most basic examples of pitch relationships are melody and harmony. If my availability works, I will gladly take in anyone who desires to explore all the basics and beyond. I greatly hope that any student considering lessons will read all of the information provided about myself on Apprentus. I will not begin a lesson with any student who does not answer the first five questions. Now, I believe I've covered enough ground for potential students to understand what my lessons will be about. So for now... enjoy the sounds and Au revoir!
