Freestyle Rapping is the art of improvising lyrics on the spot. It will help you rap better, perform more confidently, and naturally write amazing rap lyrics.

Freestyle rapping can also help with songwriting for any genre of music, getting in a creative 'flow state', and public speaking.

You can practice freestyle rapping using the included hip hop beats or free rap beat instrumentals found on youtube.

This course is the only proven freestyle method that has a 100% success rate with 100's of students.

I accidentally came up with the 4 step process in college when a girl in my co-op asked how she could start freestyling...

We went through 4 simple small steps to make sure she was successful and it worked...

She ended up freestyle rapping better than I did my first time...

Since then...

I've been teaching college, high school and elementary school students how to rap for over ten years and I'm super excited to finally release this freestyle rap method to the world...

I used the songwriting skills taught in this course to make 100's of hiphop, r&b and rock music songs.

When I was 16 I asked my friend Mark to teach me how to rap and he gave me two golden rules...

1. When starting out don't worry about rhyming


2. Don't stop if you mess up.

These two golden rules and Marks' encouragement got me to start freestyle rapping which led me to writing 100's of songs and opening me up to express myself creatively in all forms.

The truth is, if you can just follow these two rules then you don't need this course.

I've added four more magic steps to these two golden rules, and a lot of advanced rap and songwriting training as a bonus to make it easier for people to start freestyle rapping fast.

And If you would like some extra support to get started and get access to the 4 magic steps that have now taught over 1,247 people how freestyle rap with a 100% success rate...

...then this course is for you.

Freestyle rapping has been such an amazing songwriting tool for me and I credit it for helping me open up to writing folk, guitar, electronic and hip hop songs.

In college, whenever I was feeling down about girls not liking me, my friends and I would just get together around our dj homies (Dj Phatrick) turn tables and start freestyling.

It always helped me laugh at myself and about the situations I got myself into.

There is nothing like the immediate release of emotion that comes with the ability to freestyle rap.

With freestyle rapping the more vulnerable and honest you can be, the more healing and release you will get from the practice.

I went from being a super insecure, severely depressed, sweaty palm nerd, to a confident, friendly and smooth nerd because of freestyle rapping.

Thanks for checking out my course and I sincerely hope it helps you.

NEW UPDATES Have Been Added:

I've recently added "The 8 Steps To Rapping Like A Pro": This new section will teach you how to "hijack" the skills of any and all of your favorite rappers and make their skills your own. What makes these steps unique, is that it allows you to combine the skills of a few of your favorite rappers and add their skills to your own rapping ability.

What's cool about this is that every time you go through these steps with a new rapper you really like, you'll get even better and add even more skills to your rap game. 

I've also added the following new videos:

  1. How to find your rap voice

Instructor Biography

Pat Parra, 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.
