Description

This course by JFilt is dedicated to anyone who wants to be able to play hip hop songs on the piano.  It's for hiphop, R&B, classical, jazz, pop, country, blues, and rock musicians who may want to add to their piano repertoire. No sheet music required! This course is geared to develop your ability to play by ear. It's also for deejays and beatmakers who've always wanted to play their favorite hip hop songs not just on vinyl but on piano or keyboard.  

In this piano course you will learn exactly how to play 25 known classic hip hop songs.  The songs are split up into regions so you can have a diversified learning experience.  

At the end of this course you will have gained at least 25 more songs to your live piano playing repertoire. If you have never played the piano before, I would encourage you to start with JFilt's free course called "Piano Music Theory - Back to Basics".  If you wanna learn some innovative ways of creating beats, check out the YouTube Channel called Verysickbeats.

Wassup everybody!

My name is JayJay Johnson but i'm mainly known in social media as JFilt (Justified From Instilled Life Teachings)

I'm a full-time musician as well as a content creator within the beatmaking community.  I've been making beatmaking tutorials on YouTube since 2010 and have over 23,000 subscribers.   

Teaching innovative ways of making beats, informing, and inspiring is what my main focus is on but honestly before Youtube was even around, I used to give piano lessons.  Im thrilled to use an avenue like Udemy to sort of get back to my roots by providing a way to put out piano lessons among other topics in an online course.  

If you happen to make beats and wanna check me out on my Verysickbeats Youtube channel, feel free!

Peace & Positive Energy,

JFilt
