I’m going to assume you’re interested in rap music, but you don’t know where to start. What do you need to know to write a rap song? How do you do it? Don’t worry, this course will walk you through, step by step, how to make your own rap song, even if you know nothing at all to begin with. If you’ve ever wanted to make a rap song, this is a great place to start.
If you’ve never written a song before or are a complete beginner, this course is designed for you. I developed it to give you very clear, actionable steps on writing your first song. I’ve even picked out an instrumental that I’ll share with you, and then we’ll walk through each step of creating a song, together.
The course starts with very high level concepts, so you broadly understand how to accomplish your goals, and then we filter those concepts into specific, actionable components. I’ll essentially write a song with you, while providing a framework for you to follow along. You can follow me as closely as you’d like, depending on whether you want flexible freedom or more structured guidance. By the time you’re done with this course, you will have completed your first rap song!
One final thought, if you have any desire to rap, you should take this course. Really. There’s no certain stereotype you need to fit to be able to rap. Anyone is capable of creating a rap song about whatever topic they choose if they have the drive. There are no rules. There are, however, underlying techniques, which influence rap skill. Those techniques can be taught to anyone. Do not let preconceived notions or stereotypes stop you from trying something you’re interested in. Now let’s get started!
Who this course is for:
- This course is for anyone that wants to learn how to make a rap song as a rapper
- This course is NOT for individuals interested in audio production
- This course is for beginners and walks you through your first song
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.
