No, the videos are for streaming only (like Youtube). 

Yes, when you purchase the standalone course you have lifetime access ONLY to that course. 

Only the Gospel Passing Chords course is available as a standalone purchase. You’d need to purchase the membership to gain access to other courses. 

No, we offer a month-to-month plan,  6-month plan, and 12-month plan. You can see all the membership plans >> HERE<<

Yes, you can cancel your membership at any time for any reason from your account, or just shoot us an email requesting the cancelation.

Unlike other programs, we focus on structure and guidance. Over the years, I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter how much information you’re given; if the information is not structured in a logical and manageable method, you won’t see progress. Also, we focus on practicing through regular check-ins to motivate and encourage students to take daily actions.

The main ingredients needed for success that is missing from Youtube are structure, guidance, and direction. There are dozens of people giving advice and information on Youtube, but it is all chaotic, messy, and lacks any clear direction for long-term implementation. I’m sure you realize now that Youtube is just a giant distraction – it is not a place to see real growth; it is a place to pick up tips and tricks. For real growth and transformation, you will need to go beyond Youtube, which is why my program exists.
