Dear Gospel Musician,

If you're like most gospel musicians trying to learn the organ, you might be thinking that it's as simple as transferring the same chords and concepts that you know on the piano. Right?

Well, not exactly.

While the concepts of chords and progressions remain the same, how to play and connect between chords and progressions is totally different on the organ.

In fact, I had to learn this the hard way. I thought I could just take all the same chords and voicings I'd play on the piano and transfer them to the organ but for some reason, my chords on the organ would never sound as full as the next musician.

I didn't know how to "think" like an organist. Things that would have been so easy for me to pick up (like finding the right chord inversions, "sliding" my fingers instead of lifting, playing abbreviated chords on my left with extended voicings on my right), I just didn't know because I didn't have an experienced organist to share with me the "ins" and "outs"--- the "do's" and "don'ts."

Fast forward several years later and now I'm playing the piano and organ (...even fiddling around with some guitar) because I was able to skip all the years of mistakes that come with learning a new instrument.

 

Music Success Secret: "When it comes to learning something new, never repeat the mistakes others have experienced if you can help it. Learn from those who have been where you are and are currently where you want to be."

 

This is referred to as "cutting down the learning curve." Why sit for days and weeks trying to pick out chords and voicings when someone has already done this and is available to teach them to you, step-by-step?

That is why I've created this organ resource --- to make sure that you can cut down your learning curve and start playing praise songs, worship tunes, and congregational music on the organ in no time (...of course with practice and dedication).

 

Who Should Be Reading This Page?

* Anyone who plays the organ or wants to make the transition from piano to organ...
 
* Musicians who struggle to keep up with modern ways to play praise and devotional songs...
 
* Musicians who seek to "contemporize" the way they play gospel music...
 
* Musicians who "think" they know all there is to know on the organ. This isn't for the pure beginner. The chords get complex.
 
* Any musician desiring to learn more gospel voicings on the organ!
 
* Musicians committed to lifelong learning, no matter what style of music or instrument.

If you can relate to any of the statements above, then I encourage you to continue to read this page. There are tons of video demonstrations and useful information below.

 


Just before we delve into what you'll learn, let me tell you a little bit about myself (host / co-instructor) and Kevin Nickelson (organist / instructor).

 

    Kevin Nickelson is an organist-extraordinaire on the west coast. He has been a Minister of Music for over 25 years and has played for the "Who's Who" in gospel music. From Kurt Carr, Judith McAllister, and Beverly Crawford to Douglas Miller, Juanita Bynum, and others, he's had the privilege to travel around the world accompanying various gospel artists and groups.

    I am the founder of HearandPlay.com and have taught thousands of people how to play the piano by ear:

>>> Over 51,275 people from over 53 Countries have already relied on me to teach them how to play the piano through my various paid courses. Many of them have since gone on to play in bands, churches, special events and more (as shown in their Testimonials)!


>>> I currently serve more than 202,364 online subscribers and supply over 1,500,000 visitors (that's ONE AND HALF MILLION PEOPLE) per year with my online piano lessons, newsletters, and more!

>>> Thousands of them now play the piano for their churches, special events (weddings, celebrations, ceremonies, parties ... and the list goes on) and even assist in directing the choir. These secrets will open up unimaginable doors!  .... believe me, I use them myself!

 

Simply put... with the two of us combined, you're destined to receive the techniques, concepts, tips and tricks you need to succeed on the organ!


 

 Learn, step-by-step, how to  quickly and easily play praise and worship music on the organ at your own pace...

 

  • How to play uptempo praise songs using my award-winning 5-step process and tons of bass lines, right-hand chordal movements, "runs," "licks," and more!

     
  • http://www.hearandplay.com/gk350newpic.jpgHow to incorporate the "third element" into your playing to produce the sound of a full band, especially if you're the only musician!

     
  • Discover the secrets to playing hundreds of "call-and-response" hand-clapping praise songs in all 12 keys just by knowing a few well-known organ patterns!

     
  • Learn how to play common progressions and turnarounds like the "1-4," "7-3-6," "6-2-5-1," and how to apply them to your favorite congregational songs like "Bless that Wonderful Name of Jesus," "God is a Good God," and more!

     
  • An "over-the-shoulder" and "behind-the-foot" look at how to combine the power of the foot pedal, left hand, and right hand and what it takes to play all three of these components in sync.

     
  • Over 40 bass runs, chords, progressions, and fill-ins to apply to your organ playing right away! After learning these things in all 12 keys, you'll instantly have over 480 chords to add to your gospel playing toolbox.

 

 Never "guess" on the organ again! Model after someone who's "been there" and "done that!"

 

  • Discover the simple secrets to effectively using the drawbars, percussions, and settings to obtain the contemporary sound that you desire.

     
  • Learn the proper techniques to playing the bass pedals cleanly and smoothly. If you're not familiar with the "toe-heel" technique to double the speed of your bass-walking, then you're missing out!

     
  • How to get away with playing advanced "phat" chords (...that are normally used for worship) during high tempo praise songs. The combination of these contemporary chords during a fast praise song is explosive!

     
  • Learn the way of the west coast and how to contemporize your praise & devotional songs using "west coast" chords, movements, and runs!

     
  • The secrets behind one-note pivots and how just a few little changes to the way you play chords can totally transform your sound on the organ. Remember: The way you approach the organ is not the same as the piano.

     
  • Several left-hand/right-hand combinations that can be used interchangeably to create dozens of chordal variations. For example, you can use the left-hand chord from set #1 with the right-hand chord or fill-in from set #3. You'll learn a variety of sets and various things to do on both hands.

     
  • How to master 8-note bass lines (traditional) and even modern 16-note connecting bass runs (...this has never been taught before)! This is one of those things you pull out of your bag of tricks after you've repeated a praise song several times.

     
  • Learn how to power up your left hand by forming a variation of the chord you're right hand is playing. This strategy alone will make your praise songs differ from the next musician tremendously.

 

 Take your gospel praise songs to the next level on the organ. I have a step-by-step way for you to do it...

 

  • Discover 3 ways to syncopate the rhythms of your praise songs and how to provide multiplicity to the way you play them! Playing by ear means having options so you never have to play anything the same way twice!

     
  • How to borrow chords from your praise song to accompany (...back up) a preacher during high points in the sermon! Believe it or not... preacher accompaniment follows the same exact patterns as praise songs (just slowed down).

     
  • Chromatic "chord-sliding" techniques that can be integrated with any praise song ending to provide variety during long repetitive vamps.

     
  • The use of tritones and how they are the heart & soul of organ praise song mastery! I've never met a professional organist who could play a full song without utilizing tritones --- they're that important and you'll get several examples of how to use them.

     
  • Slow motion break-downs of advanced fill-ins and right-hand chordal movements so that you never miss a single beat!

     
  • How to include 7ths, 9ths, 11ths, 13ths, and several altered chords to spice up the sound of your praise songs!

     
  • How to apply the same 5-part praise song process taught in GospelKeys 300 to the organ. This concept, alone, has allowed musicians to play hundreds of praise songs on the piano. Now you'll have what it takes to play these "A-B" and "A-B-C-D" songs on the organ!
 
 
 

 
GospelKeys Organ 350 (described above) will show you everything you need to know to start playing praise songs by ear on the organ. Now, we'll turn to GospelKeys Organ 450, which focuses on worship chords and voicings.
 
 
 

 I promise you've never formed organ chord voicings like this before! We're spilling all the beans in this worship course...

  • Discover the secrets to playing worship music by learning chords and voicings for every tone of the diatonic scale. Once mastered, you'll be able to seamlessly connect multiple advanced worship chords together to play full-sounding songs.

     
  • How to play monster chords and how to voice and invert them in non-conventional ways!

     
  • http://www.hearandplay.com/gk450newpic.jpgExplore major, minor, dominant, diminished, sevenths, ninths, elevenths, thirteenths, and altered voicings from every scale degree, even tones that are not a part of the scale (transitional chords).

     
  • How to pick the best inversion of a chord based on your melody and how to use your left hand and bass pedal to support what your right hand is playing.

     
  • The power of polychords: How two separate smaller chords can creatively come together to form larger "fancy" chords.

     
  • Tons of "opening" and "closing" chords to pull out of your treasure chest at the right time! With your increased chordal vocabulary, you'll never begin and end a song on the organ the same way twice because you'll have dozens of options to choose from.

 

 Not a "show off" course! You'll be "taught" exactly how worship chords work...

 

  • Learn the same exact chord patterns that are used in some of the most popular worship songs today! Songs like "Lord You Are Awesome," "I Need You," "Like the Dew," "Lord I Lift Your Name On High," and more!

     
  • Fancy dual-note movements to add to your 1-chords! These are the same movements you hear the pros using on some of the most popular gospel albums out there!

     
  • Beginner's beware: This certainly isn't a course for someone who is struggling through our basic dvds because we introduce tons of advanced chords that'll have you sounding just like the professionals (...the 'practicing' part is up to you)!!!

     
  • How to provide instant "phatness" to common chords by using basic triads on the right hand. What most musicians don't understand is that "triads" (3-fingered chords) aren't basic unless you use them by themselves! But if you know the secrets to embellishing your chords, you'll never sound dull again!

     
  • How to acquire the "west coast" worship feel by using lead-in tones, grace notes, transitional chords, and modified open & closed voicings on the organ!

     
  • Learn to use quartal chords in key areas to enhance the sound of your voicings!

 

 There's more!

  • The key to building up your left hand independence! Hint: One major hindrance to getting to the next level is the underdevelopment of the left hand! Once you can successfully mimic exactly what your right hand is doing (...but all on your left hand), you've arrived!

     
  • How to mix "churchy" dominant chords into your worship chord progressions to instantly change up the mood!

     
  • How to apply my famous "couples" principle to the organ, using dozens of chords from all seven unique tones of the major scale.

     
  • Enjoy studying over 50 worship chords (which translates into hundreds of voicings and inversions) , and how to apply them in real-life situations!

     
  • Put it all together by spicing up old favorites like "What a Friend We Have in  Jesus," "Jesus Loves Me," "As the Deer," and more!

     
  • An up-close look at how to approach chord progressions differently and how to think creatively when it comes to combining different chords from various scale tones. Songs are built on recurring patterns within the scale tones --- so if you can master this concept, you can learn any worship song out there!

     
  • Learn how to apply my "3-4" principle to the organ and how to predict what chords will come next by using my simple mathematical model to count up and down the scale.

     
  • And much more!

 

Here are some sample video demonstrations from each course...

Special Bonus Opportunity:
You'll Also Get 3 FREE  "Monthly Music Mentor"
Courses Just For Trying This Program...

     As a very special one-time bonus, I'd also like to send you three free courses from my Monthly Music Mentor CD of the month program.

     The Monthly Music Mentor program is aimed at teaching you everything you need to know to play piano in the quickest and easiest way possible. Just as it sounds, this program was designed to take you by the hand and "mentor" you step-by-step through the musical process of playing by ear. If you lack time and want to make the best of the limited time you have, you're going to love what these monthly cd lessons will do for you.

https://secure.hearandplay.com/mmm2/images/cds.jpg     Here's how it works: Order now, and I'll throw in a one-month FREE subscription to my Monthly Music Mentor program - PLUS you'll get three free Monthly Music MentorTM introductory courses, which provide an incredible introduction to the ongoing training... and you'll get all this just for trying this program.

     The three courses you'll receive are "Piano By Ear For Starters" 2-hour course, "How To Find The Key To Any Song" 80-minute course, and the first Monthly Music Mentor introductory CD (80-minute "Getting Started" program). All of this is worth $79.95 but yours free as a bonus today.

     I'm so sure you're going to love Monthly Music Mentor courses that I'm even going to pay the additional priority SHIPPING cost to send the starter kit to you.

     If you love the three starter courses (which you will), keep them and stay subscribed to the program. Every month, I'll send you a new lesson on CD, and you'll automatically be charged only $15.95 a month... which is roughly just a quarter of what one private lesson would cost you... and you can't rewind live lessons). You can cancel anytime you want with no questions or hassles. If you cancel before 30 days, you won't be billed at all.

The Three Courses Are Your Gifts
To Keep Either Way...

     If you get these 3 courses and you DON'T love them and get IMMEDIATE success with the material you learn, you can cancel and keep all the courses FOR FREE... just for TRYING it. In other words, you get to keep all the material for free either way... even if you cancel right after you get it.

     This bonus is worth at least $79.95 alone, and it's yours free just for trying this program --- but this special free offer is only available with your purchase right now.

***If you prefer NOT to get this free $79.95 bonus package, you can "opt out" with one click while ordering... and simply complete your order without the free bonus and 30-day trial. Your choice. It's that easy.


 

"OK. I'm going to make this really good for you..."

       If you're truly serious about taking your organ playing to the next level (...updating your chord voicings, finding newer progressions to play, incorporating the bass pedal, adding fancy organ movements, learning from scratch, etc...), then you'll definitely want to be one of the next 250 musicians to take me up on this incredible offer.       

       In fact, you will love this offer because not only am I dropping the price of this package a considerable amount, but if you order today, I'm throwing in all the bonuses above which means you'll get an 86-pg comprehensive workbook with the Organ 350 dvd, a 40-pg workbook with the Organ 450 dvd, plus the bonus disc on shouting music and drawbar settings. That's $119.90 in value... but that's not all...

       You'll also get the additional 3 Monthly Music MentorTM courses valued at $79.95. So you're not only getting 4+ hours of step-by-step dvd footage on playing gospel organ but an additional 4.5 hours of audio training in free bonuses. Then there's the ongoing support of the program --- what else could you possibly ask for?

        For all of this, I could very well charge over $300 and still get tons of orders for all five discs, the additional bonus courses, extra tutorials, and workbooks. With this total package being valued at $319.97 , that price would be well justified. But I'm not going to charge you $$319.97 for the 4-hour set and bonuses. I'm not going to even charge you half that amount.

For just 3 easy monthly payments of $35, this entire GospelKeysTM Organ Training Set plus all of the bonus courses (8 hours combined)  can be yours. This offer is subject to change at any time so if you're really interested in this video course, I suggest you act quickly --- otherwise, you might end up paying $200.00 or even $300.00 in the future.

If not, my "nothing to lose and everything to gain" guarantee should help you make a decision --- or you're just not serious about this.

 

Even though the price of this package is extremely affordable (about the cost of two or three tickets to Disneyland these days), here's what's really important. If this organ series was just another set of useless courses that just sat in your bookshelf and didn't teach you anything new, it wouldn't matter what the price was. IT WOULDN'T BE WORTH ONE PENNY.

 

I don't release many courses. But when I do, I want to make sure that you're getting back in information and helpful resources & tools at least two to three times what you invest. That is always my goal and  I sincerely believe this is one of the best values you'll ever come across.

 

Jermaine Griggs, President

 

If you can learn just 30 to 40 new organ patterns, chords, bass lines, tricks, fill-ins,  "runs," and even songs, what is that actually worth to you? If you'll finally be able to play contemporary organ music for your church like you've been desiring to, what are these courses worth to you?

What is it worth to you to learn from the best of the best? (... One who has played for people like Kurt Carr, Judith McAllister, Beverly Crawford, Douglas Miller, Juanita Bynum, and more).

I can't put an exact dollar figure on it for you --- only you can do that. But I can tell you this: at 3 monthly payments of $39, this comprehensive package could very possibly be the best bargain and the best investment you'll ever make in your organ growth!

Your "Nothing to Lose And
Everything To Gain" Guarantee

  Listen to my personal guarantee

If, for any reason in the next 365 days, you don't agree this incredible program is worth every penny, simply return it (and keep the free bonuses as a gift). You will receive every single dime of your money back minus the shipping costs. You won't be sold another product. You won't be asked any questions. It's as simple as that.

My accountant thought I was crazy to even offer ANY type of return policy or guarantee on a dvd or audio course because of the many ways people could cheat us... let alone a full 365-day year guarantee. However, I believe in my programs,  and I believe in my students so much that I am willing to allow you to test drive it on me. Heck, I'm even willing to take on even more risk by letting you break up your payments into multiple months.

So not only do you get the flexible payment plan, but you have a full year to decide whether this course is for you. At 3 monthly payments of $39, you are losing absolutely nothing and the risk is all on me. What else can I say?
