It was amazing to see how confident I became by the end of our session. There were layers of limitations that were holding me in a space of self-consciousness and Kiyoshi has mastered the key to getting creativity to flow in a fun and safe environment. Beyond rapping skills, I highly recommend Kiyoshi if you have a creative block, if you have stage fright, or if you want to build a deeper relationship with music. I will definitely hire him again and again. Thank you Kiyoshi!
Kiyoshi Shelton’s rap coaching sessions are the bomb. I learned more about rap n rhythm in a couple of hours than I did through years of, well, rapping. I’m naturally a bit more of a poet than a rapper – I don’t do metronome well – and Kiyoshi quickly expanded my skills in tempo, where I didn’t have much confidence. For freestyle and written.
Definitely coming back for more soon! When I make more time to prioritize my art.
Kiyoshi is an extremely effective conscious rap coach. Within a handle of sessions, he took me from poet to rapper, teaching me cadence, adjusting my lyrics to flow better, and supporting my range of expression. I will definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone looking to up (or start) their rap game!
My experience with Kiyoshi as a rap coach was highly enjoyable. He is a very kind, down to earth, humble and patient person and has rhythm flowing through his veins! It felt so natural being with him as he guided us through different rhythms and sounds until we found the ones that felt resonate for me. Rap rhythms are unique in and of themselves and any musician should give it a shot as it is so much fun! Thank you Kiyoshi for making rapping fun and approachable!
