In this course you will develop the skill set to freestyle rap in various styles without running out of bars, even if you have never rapped before. This is a bold promise, but like anything else, freestyle rhyming can be broken down into a few simple steps. I will explain the three components to rapping, then we will talk more about freestyle-specific skills.
1. Rhythm: You will learn to catch any beat by tapping out the quarter notes, then create a simple percussion rhythm which you will then put words to.
2. Lyrics: We will talk about polysyllabic rhyming, associations, building topics to fall back on, and wordage (word choice).
3. Delivery: In this lesson you will play around with your voice to see what it can do, and take a good look at how to hone your flow.
After we cover the three fundamentals of freestyle rap, I will help you to develop multiple flows and improve your delivery, teach you tricks to come up with rhymes and always have subjects to rhyme about in cyphers. We will cover: Cypher Etiquette, how to Never Run Out of Bars, Tools to Get Going, Finding Beats, Switching Flows, Entering a Flow State, and more.
Relax, get into the vibe, and come with me on this journey through the components of freestyle rap.
Oh, and if you are wondering "Who is this guy and why should he be my rap teacher?" I am the musician that goes by the name Douglas, Sir Douglas Fresh, Ammon, and godsol. You can listen to & download my mixtape at douglas.life/mixtape, and find me on Spotify as Ammon (Check out my song "Ammon - You Are Love")
I also hold periodic freestyle events for local rappers called Solsfest (since 2014).
Oh yeah, and I built a worldwide music map app that YOU can be a part of! You can find beats there, and even share your music for free. It's called cXc Music, and you can find it at music.cxc.world

I love to learn and teach. I am a free-spirited creator and artist in many disciplines. My courses focus on selling art online, energy work, and music. I teach what would help a younger me, including the strategies I used to sell over 20,000 copies of my artwork without advertising, energy techniques I have learned to unlock human potential, and tips to help musicians.
I grew up near Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, and I am currently travel-living as a digital nomad thanks to selling art and teaching online. I plan to keep traveling, creating, and learning from this amazing planet as long as I live!
My purpose on Earth is love. Love is the greatest teacher, healer, and creator. I believe when the individual chooses to love all unconditionally, that feeling lights up the whole world instantly. That is the world I want to live in, so I choose to. I hope to inspire others to find this vibration in their own way.
I created Current X Change, a company that makes apps that allow creators to share their creations on a global map for all to see and vote on. You can try out our first web app, cXc Music, at cxc .world and learn more about our vision at currentxchange .com.
I also started Aquarius Academy (aquarius .academy) an open academy of consciousness. Our mission is to help evolve planetary consciousness with love. We distill conscious content to help seekers connect with the right information for their point of their journey.
I started fashion lifestyle brand Live in Love liveinlove .life and also sell my art on POD sites like Redbubble & Society6, and stock photography sites like Adobe Stock and Shutterstock.
