Attention: Keys Players, Synth Players, And Producers...


After 14 years training keys & synths players online, Ian McIntosh is closing the chapter on Synth University, his online workshops, and his previous programs.

This is going to sound crazy, but it's true...

Jeffrey Kunde and I have partnered to provide every "End Of An Era" customer not only lifetime access to Synth University, but also lifetime access to The Guitar Institute Pro+.  

So now you'll get $7450 worth of training for just $49.

Thanks, Jeffrey :)

"The past decade teaching online has been incredible. I've been fortunate enough to teach over 12,000 keys & synth players from around the world, but it's time to close this chapter and make way for what's next. But in order to get this into as many people's hands as possible, I want to give everyone one final chance to own it, at a price that they can afford."

"Through Ian’s educational material I have learned more in the last year than the past 6 combined. His attention to detail and in depth training is second to none!"
