My first step during teaching was simply to teach my students the fundamentals. This can be a difficult thing for many. At least for me. Some of my students have never heard of rap and still don’t know what their mistakes are. I have tried to give them a basic understanding of how to rap and have them be patient; not making them beat the crap out of me when I am not ready (yet) but providing a good foundation.
My second step was to create an easy, and very efficient way for my students to learn the technique of rapping, while keeping the focus on the lesson. I don’t teach the exact same lesson for the same length of time every time, however; I teach a different lesson on the same topic for most of my classes. The goal is to learn something new for every rap class, while staying relevant to the one you are teaching. It’s like starting from scratch as you study the fundamentals each time. But once a beginner understands how to rap the techniques properly, they can learn how to rap in any class.
How do you find out what techniques you’ll need?
As you learn to rap, you’ll likely get more and more questions from your students. It is the perfect time to ask yourself what the questions are about, and where to start. Once you have the answer, you can easily reference it later in that lesson so you will know exactly how much you have mastered your technique. It also helps to know if you need to bring out the different techniques each time you use one as well as an answer to “how much more will I need to go for?”
How quickly can you teach a lesson?
As with most aspects of teaching, timing is very important. You don’t just teach a lesson and then forget it; you spend time studying the topic, and then you test the students and then once you feel confident you can teach them. There are a few techniques that a beginner may skip or leave out for a time; this happens after two weeks of lessons, or even faster if they are too young to rap, and just want to see what I am talking about.
It is important to recognize when a beginner needs help, as there is a limit to how fast you can teach a single lesson. I have found that students who are a little rusty on every rap technique will usually learn it over time. I have had students who only have one class, and one lesson, in order to become better.
