Here's Exactly What To Expect When You Register
For The Musician Xplosion Online Course...

 

http://musicianxplosion.s3.amazonaws.com/images/image008.png

Registration opens on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The first week of online lessons get released Monday, November 2, 2015.

Each week, you'll get the opportunity to learn from a single musician covering 5 of the 10 possible styles. Since we randomly pulled the styles they'd be teaching out of a hat, each and every musician covers a unique combination of church dimensions.

What's more, we also randomly pulled what key they'd be teaching each style in. What has resulted is a comprehensive program that covers ALL 12 KEYS equally.

All prepared lessons can be accessed either by viewing online (streamed) or saved to your computer like normal digital downloads. These lessons are not live so you can access them at your own convenience. While they are released according to a particular schedule, you can access them any time after their release.

 

The 10 Church Dimensions (Styles) Include:

  • http://musicianxplosion.s3.amazonaws.com/images/image003.pngPraise - This covers traditional hand-clapping, foot-stomping praise and devotional songs performed in many charismatic churches. Examples of these praise songs include songs like "What A Mighty God We Serve," "This Little Light Of Mine," "God Is A Good God," and others. For contemporary praise, see CCM section.
     

  • Worship - This encompasses slow songs and chord progressions usually performed during the opening Praise and Worship parts of the service.
     

  • Shouting - In charismatic churches, this is the high praise moment of the service and often musically associated with uptempo bass runs, looping patterns, rhythmic riffs and fill-ins, and more.
     

  • http://musicianxplosion.s3.amazonaws.com/images/image007.pngTransitional / Talk - This is filler music often used underneath a speaker (church/pastor announcements) to preserve the flow of the service.
     

  • Traditional / Hymns - This encompasses hymns and sacred songs often performed by the entire congregational during various parts of the service.
     

  • Preacher Backup - During charismatic sermons, this is the climactic ending that usually involves more excitement in speech and tone, accompanied by organ and/or piano.
     

  • Offering & Fellowship - These are exciting parts of the service that get the congregation in a joyful mood.
     

  • Occasional Music - These are less reoccurring events like communion, baptismal, anniversaries, and annual events that require special song selections.
     

  • http://musicianxplosion.s3.amazonaws.com/images/image010.pngContemporary Christian Music (CCM) - Common in modern churches, this style of music features more major-sounding chords and progressions and less traditional movements covered in other dimensions. Songs include "Lord I Lift Your Name On High," "Here I Am To Worship," and others.
     

  • Wildcard - While this isn't an official dimension, during wildcard segments, musicians could cover anything they wanted. This includes special grooves, miscellaneous parts of the service, or one of the previous dimensions.

 

Something To Learn Everyday - Monday Thru Friday...

 

http://musicianxplosion.s3.amazonaws.com/images/image001.pngSince every musician covers 5 styles, we'll be releasing one lesson segment per day, Monday thru Friday. Each daily video ranges from 15-30 minutes.

Each musician is introduced in order, one after the other. For example, week 1 will feature musician #1 for the entirety of the week, starting on Monday.

The following Monday, musician #2 will be introduced and one segment per day will be released for that musician.

For example, one week might look like this:

Instructor: K.C. Knight

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Worship
C major
Praise
Eb major
Transitional
A major
Fellowship
F major
CCM
E major
 

...while another week might look like this:

Instructor: Jason Freeman

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Shouting
B major
Occasional
E major
Wildcard
Ab major
Traditional
G major
Preacher Backup
Bb major

*These are example scenarios and do not reflect the actual schedules and content for Jeff and Jason.

 

No Single Week Will Be The Same!

That's right.

Since each musician covers a unique set of dimensions in varying keys, you will never feel like you're learning similar material. Each week will be its own adventure.

The end result is a collection of lessons covering various dimensions of the church service in all 12 keys. Exposure to a variety of styles + exploration in all 12 keys = EXPLOSIVE GROWTH.

 

Learn At Your Own Pace!

Just because the lessons are released daily, Monday thru Friday for 10 weeks, doesn't mean you have to be online every night. Just like any other downloadable course, you can login any time you want, at your own pace.

For example, you may find that catching up on all your lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays works best for you. Or perhaps Fridays are your days.

The great part about this program is that everything is downloadable and archived so you'll always have access to the material to review at your leisure!

In addition to being able to download each video as they are released, you also have the option at the end to download a huge zip file that'll contain all video lessons, mp3 backing tracks, and midi files in one complete zip folder (to be downloaded or conveniently stored in a dropbox account instantly, if you have one).

 

A Combined 150+ Years Of Experience At Your Fingertips!

Each of these musicians have been playing for at least 10-15 years, and many for over 25 years. Combined, we're talking over a century of experience being handed to you in this 10-week program.

Your faculty:

KC Knight Jeff Siribandan Matt Faulkner David Jackson Jason Freeman
Christa Smith Leonard Jarman Julio Martinez Delvyn Brumfield Isha Love

 

 

Interact With Our Team
 

Every week, you'll be able to tune into a live event where you can ask our team questions about the material presented that week (and in past weeks, if applicable). This extra support means you'll never be left in the dark and can get your questions and concerns addressed in an interactive manner.

 

Learn From Fellow Students
 

A very helpful feature is the ability to comment and have discussions with fellow students under each segment of the program.

 

10 Weeks. 20+ Hours. 10 Musicians.
 

http://musicianxplosion.s3.amazonaws.com/images/image004.pngThis is the most comprehensive program and you're sure to walk away with a wealth of knowledge, information, and techniques to take your playing to the next level.

If you apply just 10% of what is taught, it'd be enough to pay for your entire investment alone. Yet, you'll have a resource you can always return to months and years in the future when you need a "re-fueling."

Here's What You Get:
 

  • http://musicianxplosion.s3.amazonaws.com/images/image009.pngDaily segments organized in 20-30 minute chunks. Each daily segment covers 1 of the 5 dimensions taught by the featured instructor.
     

  • Weekly interactive Q&A sessions facilitated by the Hear & Play Team aimed at answer all your questions and providing additional insights into what you're studying.
     

  • Digital download files of every segment. Do the math and that's over 50 neatly organized video files that you can categorize by style, by key, or as desired. 20 hours of footage forever archived in the training center or immediately downloaded to your hard drive for your own archives.

 

And If You're One Of The First 100 Students To Register, You'll Receive:
 

Bonus #1: Ultimate Musician Xplosion Midi File Collection (over 50 files!)

That's right! We recorded midi for each and every segment and you'll be able to access the midi files in our proprietary software, which allows you to light up each and every note being played, slow them down, change the key, freeze each chord, loop specific parts, and much more.

Value - $97.00 (but really priceless if you ask me!)

 

Bonus #2: Ultimate Musician Xplosion Backing Track Collection (over 50 files!)

"Practice with our bass player and drummer as if they were sitting right there with you!"

That's what this collection of backing tracks will do for you. Each and every segment taught will include a backing track with bass and drums so you can practice both one and two-handed chords without having to worry about the bass and rhythm. Sure beats a metronome!

Value - $97.00 (and that's modest at less than $2 per file)

 

Bonus #3: Dropbox or Zip File Archive

Want to keep a backup of the entire program all in one place?

Sure, you can download each segment one by one and organize them into their various styles, major keys, etc.

But at the end of the program, we'll also give you a special link where you can download all the video files, backing tracks, and midi files in one convenient file (either via dropbox or zip).

Warning - This will be several gigabytes of valuable data.

Value - $47.00 (for the convenience alone!)

 

Your Investment

A 10-week, 20-hour, 10-instructor program like this should cost $997.00.

There are online colleges charging upwards of $7000.00 to get certifications online and you're still not guaranteed to be playing a lick.

But that's not our vision here. We've always wanted music education to be within anyone's reach.

That's why we're not charging crazy tuition fees even though I think the program is well worth it.

Simply put, there are two ways into the program.

 

1) The Gospel Music Training Center member-only rate (80% off)

2) The non-Gospel Music Training center public rate

 

1) Gospel Music Training Center members (existing and new incoming)

If you're a Gospel Music Training Center member or willing to join today, your fee for the 10-week, 20-hour online course is just $37.00 (80% off). That's a one-time fee as long as you're an existing Gospel Music Training Center member or choose to join.

Under this program, you must be a Gospel Music Training Center member to access the course. In fact, it will use your same username and password.

Not a member but want to join?

The Gospel Music Training Center (GMTC) is your premier resource for learning gospel music online. With over 300+ hours of piano videos, 120 hours of Q&A training, 9 hours of Foundation training, 10 hours of organ lessons, and 40+ hours of unlockable courses, you’ve got a treasure chest of knowledge waiting at your fingertips. Each weekly and archived lesson covers the 5 essential dynamics of the church service: Praise, worship, shouting music, traditional hymns, and transitional/talk music. The monthly tuition is $37 and you can cancel at any time by visiting www.CancelProgram.com.

By accepting the $37 fee for this Musician Xplosion Online Course, you'll automatically join the Gospel Music Training Center and receive your first 30 days in GMTC for free.

*GMTC Lifetime members get free enrollment.

 

2) Non-Gospel Music Training Center members

If you are not a GMTC member and prefer not to join at this time, you can still enroll in the Musician Xplosion 10-Week Online Course for $197.00. This is a one-time fee and does not require membership into the Gospel Music Training Center.

This is not my personal recommendation as $197 would also get you 5 months in GMTC in addition to the Online Course. But if you're not inclined to join GMTC, this option is available to public students.

Here Are Some Frequently Asked Questions...

 

Who is this online course for?

It's for anyone who feels stagnant in their playing. If you've been playing the same chords and progressions for years and can't seem to break out of your old patterns, this course will introduce you to new ideas and concepts that will change the way you approach the songs and parts of the service you may already play and enjoy.

If you're not yet versed in the dimensions of the service, it will introduce you to professional chords and progressions that will allow you to skip the amateur level and learn the insider information the pro's use to catapult their playing to higher heights.

If you've never touched a piano or don't know the black from the white keys, this course may be too much for you. But if you have a basic comfort level with the piano, already play songs, but feel like you've been missing something... LOOK NO FURTHER.


When does the online course start?

Registration opens on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 on a first-come, first-served basis. The course is maxed at 300 students.

The first week of online lessons get released Monday, November 2, 2015.


Is the price $37 or $197?

Actually, it's both --- depending on whether or not you're a Gospel Music Training Center (GMTC) member.

If you're a GMTC member or willing to become one right now, your fee for the 10-week program is just $37 --- 80% off the retail $197.00 (which is still an amazing deal... $19.70 per instructor even at that price).

If you're not a GMTC member and not interesting in becoming one, you can join at the public rate of $197.00.

*GMTC Lifetime members get free enrollment.


Must I only view the videos online or can I download them?

Every video will be streamed directly online for quick access but also available for download to your computer. Additionally, at the end, we will allow you to download the master zip file, which can either be transferred to your computer (big file) or automatically saved to your dropbox account (if you have one) instantly.

Do I have to be online at a specific time?

Absolutely not. While we're calling it a class, it is really an at-home, self-paced "online" course that allows you to move at your own speed. While we release each instructor's 5-part sessions nightly (Monday thru Friday), you have the freedom of choosing when you go through the material.

Any live Q&A session schedules will always be posted ahead of time and you can submit your question well in advanced, even if you're not able to attend. Because every session is recorded, you'll be able to listen to the replay and find the answer to your pre-posted question. We've done over 170+ Q&A calls in the Gospel Music Training Center and this system works very well.


I want to get the special GMTC-Only rate but might not be able to stay in GMTC. Is this a problem?

There are no obligations or commitments when you join the Gospel Music Training Center.

To get the special GMTC-only rate of $37 (80% off), the only requirement is that you be a GMTC member. To login and access the 10-week online course, you need GMTC access. Once the class is over and you have downloaded the video files and/or zip file, you can cancel your membership. Of course, it is our hope that you continue to stay but you're not obligated under any circumstances to do so.

The other option is to enroll at the non-GMTC tuition of $197.00 and access the course without being logged into GMTC.


Are there any bonuses?

Yes, there are three bonuses for the first 100 students to enroll.

Bonus #1: Ultimate Musician Xplosion Midi File Collection (over 50 files!)
That's right! We recorded midi for each and every segment and you'll be able to access the midi files in our proprietary software, which allows you to light up each and every note being played, slow them down, change the key, freeze each chord, loop specific parts, and much more. Value - $97.00.

Bonus #2: Ultimate Musician Xplosion Backing Track Collection (over 50 files!)
"Practice with our bass player and drummer as if they were sitting right there with you!"
That's what this collection of backing tracks will do for you. Each and every segment taught will include a backing track with bass and drums so you can practice both one and two-handed chords without having to worry about the bass and rhythm. Sure beats a metronome!
Value - $97.00.

Bonus #3: Dropbox or Zip File Archive
Want to keep a backup of the entire program all in one place?
Sure, you can download each segment one by one and organize them into their various styles, major keys, etc.
But at the end of the program, we'll also give you a special link where you can download all the video files, backing tracks, and midi files in one convenient file (either via dropbox or zip). Warning - This will be several gigabytes of valuable data. Value - $47.00.


You're only accepting 300 students?

Yes, because of the online and interactive nature of the course, we can only accommodate 300 students in this first wave. We may return months down the road with a second opportunity but there are no guarantees.


Are GMTC Lifetime members free?

Yes, if you're a Lifetime member, your enrollment fee will be waived. There is no need to register for the class. On Monday, November 2, 2015 (the first week of the master class), you'll automatically receive an e-mail and be granted to the member's area with your existing username and password.
