Experienced GOspel Music Instructor "Unveils"
The cutting edge mindset "TOP LEVEL" Church musicians Use to Level up their playing everyday...
If you're just want to learn some "quick fix" gospel ideas, 
and DON'T even care about the thought process behind...

Why they work. 

How they were created.

Or how the concepts used to create these "sick gospel moves" apply to other musical scenarios.

Please stop reading now.

Just go to YouTube, and watch a bunch of random videos where they: 

Play too fast...

Confuse the mess outta you...

And don't teach you the high level thinking responsible for those "crazy chords" and ideas...
Vaughn Brathwaite
Helps people make PERMANENT transformations in 
their playing
But if you've always wondered what the pros are thinking about when they play...

And you're willing to take the time to learn their "secret" ways...

Keep reading, because this letter is the answer you've been searching for.

It'll show you how to...
Become a highly skilled, Creative And
versatile gospel musician, that easily handles ANYTHING a church service throws at you
Back in the day I dreamt EVERYDAY about being the musician for my church.

Seeing musicians at my church playing made me want to learn gospel piano.

But because I was a beginner, I thought I'd never reach my goal. 

It seemed so out of reach, and I felt like I would NEVER catch up.

What made things even more frustrating was that I could hear great music ideas in my head. 

But I couldn’t play them!

When I‘d ask church musicians to show me how to play like they did...

They would just ignore me. 

And the nicer ones would just give me some generic answer like...

“Just Keep Shedding”

I spent lots of time searching for answers, but all I was getting was scraps...

Luckily one day I heard this quote:
Suddenly a light bulb went off in my head!

I realized that I could only survive on being "given fish” (copying musicians) for a short time.

Sooner or later I had to learn how to fish for myself.

So what is "fishing for yourself"?

It can be summed up like this:
“If You Can THink Like a Pro, 
you Can PLay like A Pro”
That's the missing link.

That's what ALL those other DVD’s and YouTube videos failed to teach me.

They didn't teach the mindset of skilled gospel musicians.

But that’s the most important thing!

Think about it…

*** If your life was on the line and you needed to get heart surgery, would YOU feel safe letting someone operate on you who “copied” what they saw on a few surgery videos on YouTube ? ***


Would you prefer someone who completely understands the “ins & outs” of the human body, understands your specific condition, and has gotten the level of training necessary to perform a successful surgery?

The choice should be obvious...

But the same goes with learning and playing music at a pro level.

You must think like the pros, to play like them.
Once you come to grips with this fact, your musical journey will be more fulfilling and making progress becomes A LOT easier!

After I discovered this “mindset shift” I tinkered with it for a few weeks.

Soon I was able to play the same jaw-dropping chords and movements I saw other musicians play.

And once you train your mind to think like a pro gospel musician you'll...
 Play chords that Turn People's Heads, 
And ideas WIll flow OUt of You...
YOU'll Play with more "swagger" & confidence
After learning this I felt obligated to help other musicians who wanted to play better, but didn’t understand.

After all, when I needed help, no one really wanted to help me, so I felt it was only right to pay it forward.

I started giving private lessons to friends at first but then my clientele grew SO big I had to stop taking on students.

My clients used to pay me up to $200 a lesson back then, because they wanted to make sure they could secure a lesson and learn the system I created.

And even though the money was great, it took up so much of my time that I started to not enjoy having to teach the same thing for 15 hours everyday.

So I stopped giving lessons.

But then people started asking me if there was a course that taught what I was teaching, and that sparked an idea..

What if i created a resource rich database of gospel music courses that could teach what I learned in a systematic way, to a TON more people who needed the information, and while giving me the freedom of having more of my time to myself again?

A site that would teach in a way that would get musicians REAL results that people could notice.

     - Even if they didn’t know a lot of chords. 

     - Even if they don't have a lot of time to practice

     - Or they just want to keep going to the next level in their playing

I wanted to give them a proven blueprint they could follow to guarantee their success

(if they stick to it)

And that’s why I created the...
The "Gospel University" is unlike any other gospel training resource in a few ways.

First - You'll be taught by Berklee College of Music teachers & alumni, as well as other "high-level"  music industry professionals.

Second - As a member you'll get a specific practice plan based on what your specific goals are:

   - If you want to play better sounding chords. There's a plan for that

   - If you want to get more solid & seasoned on the organ. There's a plan for that

   - Want to get better at backing up a preacher? There's a plan for that

   - What about Talk Music? There's a plan for that too

And if by some rare chance there's something we don't cover, you can shoot us a suggestion email. 

Plus, we keep updating the Gospel University database with new content every week.
So what is The 
"Gospel University"?
The "Gospel University" is an online gospel music academy designed specifically to help musicians that feel "stuck" in their playing finally break FREE and start playing the with the confidence, creativity, and freedom of expression they want.

And the great thing is it DOESN'T have to take you a long time.

Most members who join see results in as soon as 7 days! And if you stick with it for 60 days you can make huge transformations that people WILL notice.

But Gospel University isn't just for "external" transformations...

But the "internal" transformations you'll make as a result of being a Gospel University student are where the real benefits lie.

   * Actually KNOWING what your playing & why you're playing it.

Here's A QUICK Sneak Peek Inside 
The Gospel University
So Let's Sum Everything Up...
Tuition for The "Gospel University" Online Gospel Music Academy is $47 per month.

However, there are NO refunds on subscriptions.

But, you can cancel any time (for any reason).

The truth is that the "Gospel University" isn't meant for everyone.

And honestly, the vast majority of "so called" musicians don't qualify to join.

For example...

Gospel University is NOT for people who can't dedicate at least 15-30 minutes a day to honing their craft. (It's all about WHAT you do with those 15 minutes) 

Don't worry I'll show you what to do :)

It's NOT for people who never implement anything they learn (but complain about information overload)... 

It's NOT for those who are on a tight budget (I would not recommend going into debt to subscribe to Gospel University)... 

And it's DEFINITELY NOT for musicians who think they can "shortcut" their way to being a high level musician overnight without putting in ANY effort.

If I described you above, the Gospel University isn't for you, and you should NOT waste your time subscribing.

You can use other "surface level" resources like YouTube and other Gospel DVD's, but you know what that'll give you...

 * More stress & overwhelm, not knowing what to do to get better.

 * More frustration with how your playing.

 * More disappointment, because you see little to no improvement in your playing...

There are two types of people: Doers & Dabblers.

The doers are attacking their music dreams with tenacity and passion, they are following the simple framework laid out inside the Gospel University. 

In fact, if you're not prepared to implement what you learn... or if you're just temporarily excited about the possibilities and are not ready to do the work to make those a reality in your life... then you should not subscribe.

***NOTE: If you plan on joining for one month JUST to "try things out" and then cancel after 30 days, you WON'T be allowed back in to the program in the future. 

(We have software that tracks this)

Like I said before, we don't like dabblers :)

This is for passionate gospel musicians only.

Are YOU one of them?

Here are Some Success stories of 
students who Are "Gospel University" Members
Are there any physical items or DVD's that come with the Gospel University?

No. The Gospel University is an 100% Online Gospel Music Academy

Do you accept PayPal?


How often are the Gospel U Academy trainings?

Trainings are held every month.

Why don't you do a trial like ____?

Because in our experience that attracts the wrong kind of people our instructors don't want to work with. The fact is inside the gospel musician community there are some great people that we LOVE to work with. They're committed and they get results. Their passion for playing comes through in everything they do. Those are the people who are currently members of Gospel University.

But then there are those "freebie seekers", pain-in-the-butt type of people. These type of people we have no tolerance for, because they waste time, make excuses and are not willing to put in the work.

If you're already looking for a way out before you even begin, that means you really aren't committed to your music goals. And we don't want people who aren't fully persuaded to join The Gospel University.

Can I access the Gospel University materials at anytime?

Yes. As a Gospel University member you have 24/7 access to the platform on ANY device.
Is Gospel University For Me?
If you're tired of being at your current level, or tired of being mistreated & made fun of by church people and other musicians because you don't play good enough, and you want to finally become a great musician - The Gospel University is for you.

If you're a musician that's frustrated with their playing and you want to FINALLY take it to the next level - The Gospel University is for you.

If you've tried to improve in the past using "other" methods, but you have NO results to show for all the time you put in? The Gospel University is for you because our trainings get people results.
