I Self Educated my self in The Art Of Music. Under The Teachings Of GOD, Jesus Christ, All The Prophets Of The BIBLE, Also 2Pac, Bone Thugs ~N~ Harmony, Tech N9ne, Twista The Insane Clown Posse, Billy The Kid, Martin Luther King, John F Kennedy, & Charlie Chaplin.
I am self taught. I did learn to read music very slowly but in this generation it wasn't necessary to be able to do that. My objective, as pounded into me by my dad, was to write, write, write. That's what I did and still do. I get my greatest joy in life penning new material. Creating something from nothing. It's a wonderful gift.
I took a few music classes but mainly self taught.

None.. Just follow the flow and the feelings!
I have no musical education I learned just by doing and being around other as far as my writing and rhyming.
As stated in the question before; i went to music school when i was 6 years old. By the age of 8 i started learning how to play the piano and kept on learning till i was about 13. I quit music lessons and started composing on my own.
My feelings taught me all these, i had no teacher.
I played hand bells in elementary and the trumpet in middle school. My highschool years i would skip school to make beats on my friends drum machine S/O to Ronnie Bullock
I KNOW AS MUCH AS I NEED TO KNOW
I took recorder lessons in grade 5 & 6. LOL Other than that I received a guitar on my 12th birthday and learned to play with a chord chart, however stopped learning when I found the amazing capo. lol I predominately play by ear with basic chords. As for singing lessons, I grew up in very small community where Mrs. Nest taught music lessons to the classes 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8 - it was in those school music classes that I learned to control my voice and project my passion.
I started with private lessons on piano when I was ten. Then I picked up the trumpet in middle school. I attended Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp during the summers of middle and high school, where I also started singing in choir. I continued choir in high school. I also picked up the guitar and taught myself. After I was competent enough I joined bands with friends and started writing and recording.
