**This course is the exact same as the first part of my "Learn How To Freestyle Rap, Rap Like A Pro, and Write Lyrics"

This version of the course is just for people who want to learn how to freestyle rap for fun, but are not interested in learning how to write rap lyrics for songs or learn how to rap like a pro.

This course will teach you the basics for how to freestyle rap for fun so you can impress your friends and get in touch with a creative "Flow State."

Learning how to freestyle rap is the best first step for learning how to rap because it combines the three core rap skills into one instant practice...

With freestyle rapping you're developing your:

  • Flow Muscle: How you flow rhythmic patterns over beats
  • Speech Muscle: How you deliver your raps
  • And Lyrical Muscle: How you stream unique creative lyrics

All at the same time

This will give you the best foundation possible for learning how to rap, how to write raps, and how to make your own full songs...

By the end of the course...

  • You will have the ability to freestyle rap
  • You will be able to freestyle rap about your surroundings.
  • You will be able to turn anything into a spontaneous freestyle rap or song.
  • You will be able to improvise lyrics on the spot.
  • You will be able to break through writers block with freestyle rapping.


  • Step by step video training where you go back and forth with me until you are freestyle rapping (Takes about 7 minutes)
  • 10 Hip Hop beats to download and practice rapping over
  • Audio version of the course so you can take the course with you and always have a way to practice freestyling.

Why take this course?

Take this course if you want to:

  • Learn how to start rapping
  • Become a better rapper
  • Learn how to freestyle rap
  • Learn how to improvise lyrics on the spot
  • Be able to turn anything into a spontaneous song
  • Have a tool to help you break through writers block

This course normally is $250 an hour and up for live sessions with me when I teach in schools and music camps.

And the schools and music camps don't even get half of the training that you get in this course.

You get the 4 magic steps to start freestyle rapping in minutes.

And you get the 3 advanced skills to be a better freestyle rapper than over 90% of rappers on the radio.

Plus you get a few extra bonuses in this course as well.

Like a sample of the masters writing class and a few extra surprise tips and training. And some advanced freestyling exercises.

So if you just want to learn how to freestyle rap without wanting to learn how to rap like a pro or how to write raps...

Then get this course.

If you want my full course which includes the songwriting training and the 8 steps to rapping like the pros...

Then I strongly recommend getting my other course on Udemy called "Learn How To Freestyle Rap, Rap Like A Pro, and Write Lyrics" before the price increases to $297.

Just search on Udemy to find "Learn How To Freestyle Rap, Rap Like A Pro, and Write Lyrics"

You will get all of my courses combined in that one course so you don't have to buy each course separately.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for checking out this program and I look forward to hearing your freestyle raps.


Who is the target audience?
  • You should take this course if you want to start rapping or become a better rapper
  • You should take this course if you want to open up more creatively.
  • This course is not for you if you can already freestyle rap for over a minute without stopping

Anyone Can Learn How To Rap and Freestyle

Hey, my name is Pat...

And when I first started rapping, freestyling and making songs 20 years ago...

I was horrible at it. 

I never thought I'd have 5 albums of my own music released or rap students from 127 countries. 

After struggling with depression in high school I started looking for ways of expressing myself.

I saw some guys freestyling during a lunch break and was given two golden rules to get started.

This got me into performing, recording and songwriting...

However it still took me 3 years of practicing to really get confident at freestyling. 

Then in college one night at a party, a girl asked me how to freestyle rap and the 2 golden rules were not working fast enough for her. 

That's when I developed 4 more simple steps to get anyone to start freestyle rapping within 5 minutes by taking advantage of a creative flow brain discovery. 

This freestyle method allowed me to be able to improvise lyrics without needing any prewritten lines...

And it allowed me to make 5 albums of music in different styles.

I started teaching what I discovered at schools and music camps with a 100% success rate.

I love seeing people go from not believing they can rap and freestyle to easily freestyling their own lyrics right in front of me.

Now I'm teaching how to freestyle on Udemy because it is the best way to get started writing your own songs, and telling your own unique stories.

Thanks for checking out my page and I hope you enjoy my freestyle rapping course.


On Udemy: I currently have courses teaching people "How To Rap Like The Pros", "How To Freestyle Rap and Write Rap Lyrics". and "How To Make Beats For Rappers On An iPhone".
