We recommend watching the free lesson video to better understand the level of a course.

Can I pay with Paypal?
Not right now - we currently partner with Stripe as our payment portal which is a globally recognized payment platform so your information is in safe hands.
Why have you changed to a subscription model?
We believe there are many benefits to having a subscription with MusicGurus for our students. Subscription provides a lower entry price for customers and offers them access to 1000s of lessons on the platform making it incredible value for money. If you play more than one instrument or have an interest in songwriting or any other topic, you can explore the lessons with little financial risk.
Subscribers also benefit from creating their own learning path focusing on the most relevant topics, songs & artists to their goals.
What happens to courses I have previously purchased before subscription?
If you’re an existing MusicGurus user and have previously purchased courses, these will remain in your dashboard whether you become a subscriber or not. You will still retain lifetime access.
Can I get a refund on my subscription?
No, there will be no refunds on subscriptions.
I’m already subscribing as part of the Unlimited Pilot - what happens to my membership now?
Your subscription will continue as normal - you don’t need to do anything. Adding new courses to your dashboard will now be much simpler however as you won’t need the unique code.
I have a code - how do I redeem it?
You can redeem it on this landing page: https://www.musicgurus.com/redeem/
Can I contact the teacher?
If you have a question for one of our gurus, drop us an email to [email protected] and we will try to help you.
Can I download a video?
No, you can only stream the video lessons. Any attempt to download content from the platform would be in breach of the T&Cs you agree with by using the platform.
How can I become a ‘Guru’ on the platform?
If you have any suggestions for a ‘guru’ or if you are a ‘guru’ yourself, we’d love to hear from you! Drop us an email to [email protected] and include some relevant links to your performances and teaching experience.
Can I purchase bulk subscriptions for my school organisation?
Yes you can. Please email [email protected] and one of our team will be in touch.
