Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any minimum commitments to membership?
There are no minimum commitments for Silver Members. Silver Members are free to join and leave at any time. If you feel that Live and Teach Guitar isn't for you, you can cancel your membership without any penalty. You can always come back later on if you change your mind again. Keep in mind that membership is prepaid based on your plan so you are free to leave at any time without extra charges (but no refund).
Gold and Platinum Members must join for a minimum of six months which is paid in advance on joining. After the initial six months members can leave at any time.
What is the difference between the membership options?
Silver Membership suits teachers who want to want access to our lesson materials, guides and courses. If you want to work on growing your business we have plenty of guides and courses to help you out. You will have full access to all of our resources along with basic email support and advice.
In short - Silver Membership is for the DIY-style teacher who wants access to all our resources.
Gold Membership is for guitar teachers who want us to create and manage a website for you. We'll work with you to build your website and use best practices and strategies so you don't have to figure it out on your own. We'll take care of SEO and maintenance and regularly look for ways to improve your website. You will also have full access to our resources as well as priority email support and advice.
In short - Gold Membership is for guitar teachers who want a professional website but don't want to build it themselves.
Currently, only Silver members can apply for Gold. This is to make sure that we only work with teachers who understand our business and marketing strategies and feel it is a good fit. If you're not a Live and Teach Guitar Member and are considering Gold Membership, join as a Silver member to start studying our resources. If you then feel our approach suits you, you can talk to us about upgrading to Gold.
Platinum Membership is for guitar teachers who want us to manage an ongoing Facebook Advertising Campaign for you. If you don't want to go through the trial and error of figuring out how to effectively advertise on Facebook on your own, we can do it for you. You will also get a professionally built website and full access to our site's resources.
In short - Platinum Membership is for guitar teachers who wants to focus on teaching and leave the marketing to someone else.
Applications for Platinum Membership are currently closed to new members.
What does the website as part of Gold/Platinum Membership look like?
We design and create your website based on your business needs. A website built for a studio with multiple teachers will need to be very different to a website for a sole teacher. As an example, if you want to be able to sell online courses or products on your website, we will need to design it to suit those needs.
Can I change plans later on?
Silver Members can apply for Gold Membership at any time. If a Gold or Platinum Member wants to downgrade to Silver, they can also do so, but it will impact their website.
Will Live and Teach Guitar have access to my banking details?
No. Membership payments are run through PayPal so we never see any of your banking details. This has been done to give you the best protection possible. Another reason why we have set up membership using PayPal is that it gives you control over your payment.
What methods of payment are possible?
As payments are processed using PayPal you have flexibility with payment methods. You can have the payment come straight from your chosen bank account, debit card, credit card or PayPal balance. There are no fees for any form of payment you choose. You can always change payment methods in the future (eg: want to change from bank account to credit card).
