Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the coaching sessions take place?
I conduct my coaching sessions via Google MEET which is run from your phone or computers web browser which doesn't require any downloads.
How can we practice together using music?
Good question! When it's time to practice the music we will take turns. Once it's your turn you will simply play the music on your end using a device separate from the one you're using for Skype. This will allow there to be zero delay between your vocals and the music.
What if i'm using a mobile device or phone?
That's not a problem at all. We will still be able to conduct our coaching sessions that incorporate music just fine. All you will need to do is play the music on a separate device than the one you're using to speak during the session.

He knows what he is doing and he is very, very good at what he does!
Cole Mize has been my teacher since 2016. He has helped me to develop several projects including a full-length LP. When I started working with Cole, I had zero rapping experience and knew almost nothing about how to create music. I was more beginner than beginner.
Over the years, I have learned so much from him about rhythm, flow, cadences, melody, and timing, but also about business management, advertising and promotion, and mind-set. Of course, for any musician, the time that they are spending developing their music is the best time, it's the funnest time, it's the most soul-enhancing time, but working with Cole with his upbeat personality, turns of phrases, encyclopedic knowledge of rapping as a craft, positivity, and sense of humor, the sessions invested in building my tracks from the ground up have been actually joyful, uplifting, memorable, and life-changing.
To me, Cole is Dr. Cole, a professor who has taught me to believe in myself and taught me how to create rhythm and energy behind the lyrics that I write. I am so grateful for his support and encouragement.
Thank you to Dr. Cole for all that he does and all that he is. I recommend him in the highest possible terms to up and coming rappers and to those who are seasoned. He knows what he is doing and he is very, very good at what he does. He helps people to reach their potential and elevates their music so that it can be all that it should be.
Aurora Elms // Poet - Writer - Recording Artist
Cole was able to find the areas I was lacking on the very first session
"It’s hard to find the words, but I’m really thankful to be working with Cole. He was able to find the areas I was lacking on the very first session and tailored a program just for me. I’ve gained such a deeper appreciation and insight for music it feels surreal at times.
Most importantly, Cole is a stand up guy who loves teaching. It’s easy to see what he does during sessions, but perhaps even more impressive is the time he takes outside of the session to help his clients. I can’t guarantee he’ll make you the next big thing, but I can guarantee you’ll work with a great guy, and your knowledge and skills will go far beyond what you thought you could do."
Jeff // Rapper - Therapist
Cole's my rap game Mr. Miyagi
"Cole's expertise and attention to detail fully permeates his coaching services. There's no lie to his mantra, "Be a Better Rapper Now". Cole's thorough, patient and will hold you accountable, so you best be ready to put in the work! I've gone from struggling writing to a beat to now being confident in my voice, rapping and free-styling, a major chunk of credit goes to Cole.
I'm excited for what the future holds, now my rap skills are always waxing on and waxing off - like a 24 hour waxing salon holding a car wash with a karate kid tournament inside the lobby ;) - Cole's my rap game Mr. Miyagi. Highly recommend!"
DeBarros // Rapper - Techie
Without Cole my music would've never hit the next level...
"Cole produced my entire EP, and spent countless hours making sure it was perfect. There were nights where we stayed up until 4 am just looking for the perfect beat. Cole's like family to me now and without him my music would've never hit the next level from a production standpoint. As long as you're serious and willing to invest, he is your guy!"
It's really worth it!
"It's amazing how much this coaching service has done for me. I have become so much better at rapping, and I am so grateful!"
"Cole is a really good teacher and I could not have done this without him. If you want to learn how to rap, I would really recommend that you book some coaching sessions with Cole. It's really worth it!"
I have improved so much as an artist...
"I have worked with Cole Mize for the past year and I feel privileged to have him as a coach. As a result of his coaching, I have improved so much as an artist, and gained a lot of confidence in myself. In addition, he has helped me improve lyrically in music and mentally in life. I would definitely recommend him to any artist, poet, writer, etc."
The sessions were a blast!
"The coaching has helped! Cole is a fun guy! The sessions were a blast! Coming into the rap game not knowing how to properly structure lyrics, coming up with cool cadences and catchy hooks and meaningful lyrics with coaching Cole has solved that all for me. If you're stuck struggling with your music I definitely say book a coaching with Cole."
Cole is always willing to go the extra mile...
"What I love about Cole is his heart to encourage and desire to coach with excellence. He is always willing to go the extra mile in order to help you understand key concepts and his approach to teaching forces you to learn and grow. Learning to Rap is not easy, but if you are willing to put in the hard work Cole can help you get to the next level!"
Cole Mize is such a personable and knowledgeable coach
"I would not have been able to learn how to rap so fast and grow as an artist without the help of Cole Mize. Cole Mize is such a personable and knowledgeable coach who will accelerate your learning process exponentially! LETS GET IT!"
You will NOT be disappointed
Cole Mize has been such a blessing to work with. I've seen myself improving dramatically from his coaching services. I highly recommend it.
I came in with no sense of rhyme/flow and I walked out of it with a sense of rhythm. I couldn't be more thankful that people like him have a platform to not just ask for money like some people for services they never "accomplish" but gives back to the up and coming musicians who need guidance from his YouTube channel.
He teaches about music in a way that's easy for even a beginner to comprehend. He is very versatile with his knowledge of marketing, song structure, mixing and mastering and much more. You will NOT be disappointed."
COLE IS THE TRUTH!
When I first started my career, my rhyming ability was solid prior to getting assistance from Cole, but my flow was lacking. He helped me improve it with very simple and common sense tips that I hadn't been paying attention to previously, being a beginner. But don't ever play yourself! This man's been doing this rapping stuff for 10+ years! And he can help ANYONE (with his Yoda like wisdom and critique), to become a better artist. If you wanna take your skills to the next level, hit this man up! HE IS THE TRUTH! 100!
Out of all the rappers that I came across on YouTube Cole beat them all
I would very much recommend Cole to anyone who wants to learn how to rap. Of course learning to rap is most definitely an art form and Cole has the passion, knowledge, experience and skill to teach one. He has the tools that are required to assist you in obtaining the skills.
Out of all the rappers that I came across on YouTube Cole beat them all, as he has a clear and succinct structure to follow that no others had that I came across. I have had the privilege and fortunate opportunity to work with Cole on Skype and to watch and hear him work is truly amazing!!! We worked on Alexander's two speeches and I learnt so much and how we could make it work on the stage which is still work in progress.
I was also particularly impressed with how much Cole is again really passionate about wanting to genuinely help people with his heart and soul rarely found in other coaches. His outlook on life is remarkable and such a great role model in life and in his craft.
