Your home for personal and private instruction from the members of one of the hottest touring bands today. Each musician, hand-picked by six-time Grammy®-nominated Tauren Wells, is now available to you help you hone your skills to become the singer, musician, or worship leader you are inspired to be.

Elevating the gifts and skills of others is something I’m extremely passionate about. Especially when it revolves around the areas of creativity, music, and worship. My hope through this online school is that you will be given the insight, coaching, and inspiration necessary to grow from wherever you are currently to where you see yourself in the future. My band is comprised of some of the greatest guys, Christians, musicians, vocalists, worship leaders, and teachers that I know. Dig in with them and let them help you develop your heart and your craft.
