Exclusive Training For Gospel Musicians

Check all mailboxes of your e-mail in 10-15 minutes for the link to the "Top 10 Gospel Chords Guide." But first, check out the page below...

Tired of feeling all alone because there are no organized curriculums or schools for real gospel music... no professional gospel musicians available or willing to teach you... or a sad sense that you've been left to piece things together for yourself?

"Introducing The #1 Tool Serious Gospel Musicians Are Using To Learn All The Latest Songs, The Hottest Chords, & The Theory Behind What They're Playing"

Random Youtube videos can only get you so far. It's time to learn from a step-by-step curriculum made specifically FOR gospel musicians... BY gospel musicians.

This is the resource that will save you years of trial and error, hundreds of dollars in time and lessons, and embarrassment (when you fail to play gospel songs the way they should be played).

What if there was a one-stop shop to learn everything you need to know about gospel music along side 1000s of other musicians around the world?

"Read This Page Very Carefully.
It Could Change Your Playing Forever."

This page is about your gospel playing, and if you're like any of our other students, it means everything to you. This is not just another hobby but a God-given purpose. Read this page carefully as it could impact your playing in ways you could never imagine.

"Have You Ever Felt This Way?"

  • music
    You have a deep calling to be a musician, it has always attracted you, and you believe in your heart that one day, you will realize your full, musical God-given potential...
  • music
    You're all alone because there are no organized curriculums or higher institutions for your style of gospel music (try getting a degree in "Charismatic Shouting Music!")... and the already successful musicians are either unwilling or too busy to teach you.
  • music
    You're overwhelmed by how much there is to learn. You've got melodies, chords, progressions, songs, movements, patterns... and you're expected to learn all of this in ALL 12 keys. "Something's gotta give!?!"  "How do the pro's master all of this?" "I'm a pretty smart person but I still can't seem to retain ALL of this!"
  • music
    You're embarrassed when it's your turn to come behind a professional musician on the keyboard or organ. "How am I suppose to follow THAT?"
  • music
    You simply want to give God your BEST... and you're not progressing at this as fast as you desire.

If any of these thoughts have ever crossed your mind, continue to read this page. The Gospel Music Training Center just might be what you've been looking for!
