**This course is the exact same as the first half of my "Learn How To Freestyle Rap and Write Great Rap Lyrics" Course only it does NOT include the masters songwriting section and it does not include the "8 Steps To Rapping Like The Pros".

This version of the course is just for people who want to learn how to freestyle rap, 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 so you can impress your friends and get in touch with a creative "Flow State."

Learning how to freestyle rap will give you the best foundation possible for learning how to rap, how to write raps, and how to write 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.

You will also be able to ask me questions any time if anything is unclear in our private members only discussion section.

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 and Write Great Rap Lyrics" before the price increases to $197.

Just search on Udemy to find Learn How To Freestyle Rap and Write Great Rap 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.

Anyone Can Learn How To Rap and Freestyle


My name is Pat Parra and I've been enjoying teaching How To Rap and Freestyle Professionally for over 10 years to college students, high school students, foster children, and elementary school kids.

I've released 5 independent albums and I credit my songwriting ability to freestyle rapping.

I learned how to rap in high school when I was sixteen when my friend Mark gave me the two golden rules.

1. Don't worry about rhyming

2. And don't stop if you mess up.

After practicing for years...

I came up with four more simple steps in addition to the two golden rules to get anyone freestyle rapping within 5 minutes....

These two golden rules and 4 steps are now responsible for teaching over 1,247 people in counting how to start freestyle rapping...

And in the last 14 years I've added additional training to help students go from complete beginning rappers to freestyle and songwriting pros.

Now its time to spread the love on Udemy and help other people experience the joy of freestyle rapping and writing songs.

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


On Udemy: I currently have courses teaching people "How To Rap Like The Pros" and "How To Freestyle Rap and Write Rap Lyrics".
