14 months have passed since I created my Total Organist program (thank you all who signed up since then). During this time tenths of courses and trainings, and hundreds of videos and PDF exercises have been created which helped to increase the value of the program enormously.
At first I kept counting the value in dollars for someone who would have signed up for all of the trainings separately but now I gave up counting. It's incredible how much you can learn when subscribing for any of the 3 subscription plans which I consciously made to be as affordable to people as possible.
I also have noticed how many of the members react when I create a new training or a course and add it to the Total Organist area. Most of the time they immediately sign up for it. Sometimes they would even literally complain in the best sense of the word when I wasn't quick enough to post the training on the members area. This is an excellent idea. It shows me that these courses are indeed needed and helpful to them.
For Basic Membership level I have been quietly creating many instructional videos which haven't been released anywhere else. Many of them are done on a lovely 3 manual mechanical action organ in my church.
In order to delight my students even more, I decided to add a special Member Forum and yearly subscription plans (in addition to monthly options) - something that current and future members will definitely enjoy.
Member Forum will enable my students not only ask questions and make comments about any area of organ playing but also provide them with the tools to communicate with each other, something that could be very valuable for many people who want to support and get support from their peers.
Yearly subscription plans are designed to give committed members some big savings (actually free two months) of any membership level.
When I first created Total Organist, I wasn't sure for how long people will stick with this program. Although cancellations do happen from time to time (they can cancel anytime without any commitment and risk), most of the people have been very loyal to me and continue to subscribe.
As a way of saying thanks for their loyalty, I will be focusing all of my efforts on helping my students grow even more in organ playing so prepare for more innovative trainings and courses to be added to Total Organist program soon.
