Description

Have you always wanted to rap but don't know where to start? Most new students have one of two struggles. Either they don't feel confident in their abilities and scare themselves out of starting, or they don't know what to do and don't start. In this short course, I hope we can get past both of those blocks and help you transition into a new hobby.

I made this short course to help you write your first rap verse in under an hour. We'll quickly go through the basics, then get you writing and reciting! Be ready to do the work, so you can get the most out of it. Perfectionism is overrated, you just need a starting point! 

If you've already been rapping for a while, you may find the concepts a bit basic. This is meant for those who have never rapped before, so they can get a starting point. That being said, you may still find a few useful pieces of information and I encourage you to join anyway!

Hey there! 

There are two main focuses to my work - The psychology of happiness and rap music. A little different, but that's what I know the most about! I'd love to have you join thousands of my other students. 

I studied psychology at the University of Utah and ever since then I've been interested in what creates happy, productive, friendly individuals. Over the last 6 years, I've cultivated an understanding of some of these principles and I'm happy to share them with you now.
