Hi Jermaine, I have been upset with Hear n Play for sometime because an Uncle, Edmund Martin-Lawson ordered for me Jazz 207 last year, which never got to me and seemed not to have been returned to you.

I was very happy to see this report today. I found a lot of consolation in it. Thanks for simplifying everything for us so well.

I will be making some new orders soon. I am convinced that you are the one to help take me to my next leve. God bless u!!

Hi Jermaine,
I purchase your system several months ago, but is taking my time to learn all of the basic before moving on. I am almost 50 years old and have just completed 101. You really are a god-send. with the 300 page workbook and your video my goal is to be playing for the sunday school by the end of the month with confidence. I have put my keyboard in my bedroom so when i get the urge in the middle of the night i practice my scales, correct fingering and the song on 101. Thanks again and God bless

Your report describes exactly where I’m stuck at musically right now, only being able to play basic chords, in all keys but not having the ability to transform the chords. I’ve read your report and believe i’ll be able to improve by what you have kindly taken the time to prepare.

Thank you and God bless

Wow. I was stunned when I saw that you have a mailing list of over 300K people. I thought you were talking directly to me alone. (insert smile.) Here’s the struggle-though I understand everything your write and have waited my whole life for you to write it, at the end of the day one has to practice – a lot. I’m lacking in CC and EE. I’m barely holding on with 20 minutes of Hanon in the morning and whatever time I can snatch in the evening while my kids are doing homework. I try to follow “the P’s of practce’ýyou published and myguess is that two hours a day is what’s needed at a minimum. I’m hesitant to buy more products because I don’t have time to absorb the ones I have. Does anyone develop without doing this seven hours a day? I’m getting old- I need to be efficient……….

everything yields to practise.

Jermaine:

I really appreciate all the info. I was really skeptical about any music programs because in the past I have invested in programs that were to advanced for me and of course they are collecting dust rite now. I have had the desire to play for years. I can hear music so well because I have been singing for years so I think. but to make a long story short, your gift is making it easy for me to understand what seem like german to me for so long. For that I want to say I really thank you. I even got my husband interested in playing the keyboard, who is a drummer. I will be investing in more of your material in the near future.

I know The Lord will continue to Bless You because You are A Blessing To so many others.

Hello Jermaine,

Just wanted to say I just downloaded the 44 page report and am excited about this new resource. I just can’t wait to try it but wanted to give a quick response to say Thank you! I really love the pictures of your family and the little history. I wanted you to pass on to them a special THANK YOU as well from me. I know it must be a sacrifice sometime for you to write and provide all this free stuff… so that tells me that you really care about your students’ (like me) progress. But as you give of yourself, they too must give! They give by way of their time in allowing and supporting you to write all of this. So a great big thank you to the entire Griggs Family (+ one).

If I were to send you a thank you note each time you give, it would not be enough. So I’m praying that God will return to you three folds (and more) what you have given to the Gospel Music Community! May He continue to Bless You!

Sandra

Jermaine, Jamaicans have a term to describe things that are exceptionally GOOD. We say “JERMAINE YOU WICKED… MY YOUTH.” This is the best thing I’ve come across in my musical lifetime. MAY GOD CONTINUALLY BLESS YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING…DON’T EVER GIVE UP MY BROTHER.

I HAVE HAD CLASSICAL TRAINING to play the violin and the piano, but I’ve always heard phenomenal sounding chords… beautiful complex chords especially in gospel music and wondered when i would be able to play what I have been hearing for a long time now. I am excellent at sight reading, give me anything on a score I will play it… but some of these lovely gospel songs… can’t gett a score sheet. I was stuck til you came and freed me.

I ain’t giving up. God has placed you into my life. I need to be a better musician to praise God how I really want to praise Him.

Love always, and God’s anointing on your family

Man Jermaine let me first start off by saying that “YOU ARE PREACHING UP IN HERE”!! I have a hard time here in south Jaw-guh (Georgia) getting more experienced musicians to help me with the simple things. One time I was at an anniversary and this guy was playing, I asked him would he teach me somethings and he said yes. Anywho I just happen to get on another keyboard and play around and when he heard me he stormed out saying that he was late for another meeting. It’s just like you said though, that episode only blessed me more. Thank you so much Jermaine for helping us so freely. The only way that you can do this is because of the fact that you are secure in God. A person can always give freely to others when they know who they are in God. Thanks again for all that you do….and thank you Mrs. Griggs for allowing your husband to help us.

Greetings Rev. Jermaine,

Wow!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing your family pictures. Your wife looks like a classic princess. Is she part Spanish? Your daughter is absolutely adorable! I am not leaving you out. I think you are very handsome. The few extra pounds looks good on you. You must simply love your grandma. You always speak about her. The story of never knowing your sister and now you finally meet her, that is some story Rev! I have a similar story, but it is long and I will tell you another time.

The information about how stingy muscians are, is simply the truth! I had to leave a church because the worship leader’s jealousy was eating her away. She did not want to share the music throne with me. The church was handed over to my husband, but people were not willing to be flexible and make simple adjustments. Lots of rebellion in the churches today. That’s another long story I will reserve for later.

Rev. Jermaine, you are so giving. I listen to your music theory CD’s almost every night. These lessons were great because I now don’t have to transcribe everything you said on your Gospel Keys 101. This is now all review for me, but I sometimes forget a few things and have to go back and listen. As you know, I still have not found the right medication to help my swollen hands. They are very painful as I write. I cannot practice as often as I would like to. This is why I listen and watch you and JC teach at the GMTC. I know that the practice part on the pyramid is missing. Yes, as you say; “perfect practice makes perfect.” I will soon catch up! You will be seeing me on YouTube when that happens. I will joyfully say, “Rev. Jermaine taught me.” Ha! Ha!

God bless you for all you do for your student. You keep me inspired.

Hi Jermaine, This document is very great. I was just about to give up on playing by ear as I was suck with one type of playing and could not transform it further, this will be of great help.

Jermaine – Thank you so much for your insight. I am especially grateful for your generousity – few understand the concept of ‘Freely-Giving’ of themselves from an abundance mind-set. You clearly have it! Your Musician Transformation report is both timely and effective. Why? Because it lets me know exactly where I am as a musician. Further, it provides me with a clear understanding of what I need to do in order to become the musician I desire to be, and a path to get there.

You are a miracle, and I see an abundance of miracles in store for you and your family.

Thank you once again.

Sincerely,

Cassandra

Please pray that I do the necessary things to get this program up and running. My desire at this point is only to be able to play enough to make decent sounds however I feel if I could just keep up with all of what you keep trying to get me to learn I will put a whole lot of people in the shock including myself. Can’t wait for that day to come. ( I realy don’t know how to play I just simple have a desire). I Love what you are doing. Keep up the good work.

Thanks so much Jermaine. It is beginning to come clear to me, and how exciting is that. I so appreciate your graciousness in sharing your knowledge. I have been a pastor for many years and have always given like you do, to the Lord’s people, and it is wonderful to me to find someone who can help me now to lead in worship at our home group, as this has always been the desire of my heart. I was definitely born a Worshipper, singing all my life, continuously almost, and my heart longs and longs for the depths of our God, so this teaching is opening up my life and giving me the confidence to play, worship and sing all at the same time, so that I can not only enter His throne room, but take others with me. Do you know, that all my life people have knocked me, and withheld from me the joy of actually doing this, and I became almost stunted in what I love, so thank you so very much for opening up the doorway of “how to” sing to Him all that has accumulated in my heart.
Blessings to you and the team. With much love, Robin Knapp.

Hi Jermaine,
I am so excited about these courses you provide so free heartedly. You are truly a blessing to me and as I read your site, to so many others. I believe because of you and your programs, I have finally tapped into what will help me reach my musical goals. That is to sing while playing for myself, and to play the songs I hear on the radio. And just to be able to play the music I feel inside of me. I can’t play OR sing very well, but I see the possibility so clearly now. My story is long and I won’t bore you with all the details. But I am over 50 yrs old and I can tell you I’ve been waiting for a long time to get this enthusiasm again. I started taking piano lessons when I was 8 and stopped when I was 14 because I feared a recital in a symphony hall. As an adult I’ve had a piano in my home since 1976, my children even had lessons, but I rarely touched it. I started lessons again 1 1/2 yrs ago but I was so frustrated, I was just learning songs, she could put the notes together, but I couldn’t. Since purchasing your GK’s and Secrets to playing by Ear, and with all the instructions and lessons, I can hardly believe it, but I practice everyday for more than an hour usually. And I actually read the materials. I am still so excited and I have learned so much in just over a months time. I don’t know how you do all that you do, but it is certainly a Gift from God and I pray He to continues blessing your life.

Hi Germaine

Many thanks for your astonishing 44 page and 29 page material. I was totally blown away with how simple it all seems to be. I can’t wait to get started as, not unlike you, we have “the builders in” doing some re-decorating so I can hardly hear myself think! Not the best situation to try and concentrate :~}.

Also, Good luck to you and your family with the imminent arrival of the latest(!) addition to the Griggs household.

Can I just ask a quick question – “The chords as laid out here – caan they be used for Left Hand accompaniement as well as Left Hand,and,if so, why does it not sound right?”

I would welcome your comments – or is that another chapter on it’s own?!”

I can’t believe you are actually giving this material away. What an early Christmas gift.

Many thanks, Germaine.

Kind Regards

Jermaine:

I’m in Orange County like yourself and am active as a volunteer with the “Praise Venue” (Gospel) at Saddleback handling the Tech Side of things. About six months ago we communicated about your web site and I purchased a course which gave me the motivation to go ahead and buy myself a piano. Jermaine, I think your explanation of “Black Gospel” is spot on. I spoke to a singer last week (he’s Black and I am a white guy) and told him that not only can I not jump, but I am trying to internalize the feel, rhythm, syncopation and chord progressions of Gospel having not grown up around a Black Gospel Church. He looked at me like I was crazy!

Eric Lige is one of my favorite Gospel Artist and Eric has been kind enough to send me the music to his latest album, which has been residing in my CD player in the car for months. Eric is an exceptional example of being willing to share with me what he knows to help me learn Gospel. Thanks Eric! I love your music and appreciate your willingness to help give me a lift up the ladder to understanding and learning Gospel!

Jermaine, as an older guy who studied Classical Piano for twelve years I have a pretty good grounding in Music Theory, but I flipped the switch off when I joined the Army to fly helicopters and have only turned it back on twelve months ago. So, I am playing a lot of catch up (pun intended). Jermaine your 44 pages covers to essentials and also gave me an insight to making different chord structures. By the way, the difference between “voicings” and “inversions” was pretty simple for me. Inversions are me standing on my head upside down getting the new chords committed to “Unconscious Competency”. Believe it or not, it has a lot in common with learning to fly helicopters, but isn’t nearly as dangerous.

God Bless You Brother! I look forward to becoming more involved with your courses at HearandPlay.com. You truly are a gifted instructor!

Jermaine,

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? The blessings that God has for you are too great to number!! What you have here is really great. I have gone from a drummer of 20 + years to a bass player of 8 years to now a piano player of 3 months. I have been trying to get my friends or musicians that I know to help me learn piano. As you have stated in your writings, they either do not have the time or they do not want to show me what they know in fear of their “thunder” being taken. If we are minsters of God’s music, then why are the really good musicians stingy about sharing their knowledge with others who want to play for God? What if ministers in training went to another minister to ask for help in sermon preparation or other ministry business and is told “sorry brother, you have to get it on your own.” That would be a sad day for ministry.

I thank God for you and what He has placed down in you heart to help out the masses in regards to serving the Lord musically. As you know, the number one thing that churches and new church start-ups is looking for is a keyboard player. You have leveled the playing field. Now, the person with the humble heart and wants to play for God (He/She can now with Hear and Play) can replace the arrogant piano or organ player who thinks that they are God’s gift to music. Your products and methods are indeed terrific. I am eager to see where I will be in 6 months. I am going to shoot video of my growth in 30-day intervals to measure my progress for 6 months.

Thank you again and God continue to bless you!!

Jermaine each time I try to download the 29page bonus the pdf file doesn’t open.
I downloaded the 9.0 reader but for some reason the file is not coming up. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong. The same thing happened when I downloaded the 44 page report but it finally came thru. Help please. I don’t want to miss the additional information.

Jermaine, you’ve done it again!!! Yo doc I gotta tell ya. You basically broke it down to each phase that a musician (let alone a gospel musician) needs to know and achieve to be successful. I am so glad that I found your website. I have purchased courses from you in the past, and they have definitely been helpful. I plan on purchasing this one too. I hope it has alot of contemporary stuff in it. Continued success and blessings to you my brotha!!!!

Hey Jermaine, my situation is like one of the comments I read about not having enought time to study, your courses is making a big difference in my playing , I think maybe you should try including with your instruction the correct fingering also , that is where I am weak, so I keep rewinding your video’s trying to watch which fingers to use in order to accomplish the quickness needed for example your 300 page course, if you know what I mean,anyway thank you for every thing I will keep buying your products, Peace– and may God bless you {Jerry}

Hi Jermaine:

Thank You – ma-a-a-an! I love this! And, by the way, the pyramid does work. I’m a teacher by profession and I utilize it in my teaching – all the time. For instance, it’s amazing how quickly and easily my students transcend thru’ UI – CI – UC- … even to CC (in Math)when they learn the secets of ” sharing with someone else a concept as soon as they understand/learn it!” I call it my “each one teach one’ approach.! Anyway, I just want to express my profound gratitude for your unselfish approach to music. I’m really learning a whole lot from you. Keep on doing what u doing Jermaine! For who knows… You are brought to the music world (Kingdom, if you wish) for “such a time as this!” I am really a bass player – probably somewhere between the CI and the UC stages. But, I’m learning a whole lot from you that I’ve been ‘Transposing, if you wish) to the BASS. Hopefully, some day soon, I’ll start the keyboard. But for now, It’s amazing how much I’m learning about music, in general, from your products and articles. GOD Bless you! Keep up the good work – I believe you are indeed blessed with a GOD-endowed Gift. Yes, it’s a gift from God that you possess. Keep Sharing it!!! LOVE You, Man!

May God continue to bless you for the work you have done. Thank you, as your material has greatly helped me to enhance my playing. I do have one question however….I am struggling with when to use the bass in my left handas as oppose to chording. I know when I have a bass player, the bass should be left up to that individual but I find myself still wanting to include it on the piano. Please advise. God bless.

Thanks for the report and the guides. As a former management major, I know all this goes along well with your marketing plan. Plus, I have read your interviews elsewhere where you express the “business” side of what you do. All in all, I condone it, because there is no way we are going to “muzzle this ox that feeds”. Besides, no one else is doing it with a product line that provides so much promise for the budding gospel musician. Keep up the good work, and excel at the business model that God put in your heart for both you and thousands of now-musicians to profit alike.

A very sobering report on learning piano, and not really confined to Gospel music either. The Musical Transformation & Learning Pyramid diagrams really do break down skill levels in a way that wakes a student up. I’ll be the first to admit that I do need a fire lit under my butt to practice more to evolve.

I know a senior musician set in his ways who has been playing piano for about 40 years – pretty much all self-taught by ear. Now this guy is not a prodigy but he does have a natural flair for playing(we all know them). After several conversations with him, it occurred to me that even though I am not at the same level of playing as him I still know more about theory than he could ever care to know.

Big Deal.

Well it is. When I read your report it woke me up to how I was not living up to my own true potential as a musician. I am willing to learn (obviously more motivation is needed, but its something I can work on). If I can understand these concepts I should be moving forward a lot quicker shouldn’t I? I stopped private music lessons for the exact reasons mentioned in the audio message by Jermaine – getting morsels of good music knowledge strung out over a long time. Maybe an all encompassing system that works on different aspects of music is more practical to me than a traditional approach.

Hello Jermaine,

Thanks very much for your unvaluable help. I am a guitar player, or better said, an autonome guitar student, and your guide is serving me as a roadmap to better structure and simplify all my learnings and practices, something I had been looking for during the last years without success.
Thanks again from all of us who does not have the possibility for any reason to learn our instrument in presence of a teacher in a music academy.

Wow. I just listened to how you got fired and I’m amazed. I never knew that. I think what they say is true. That is when people don’t have information, they just make it up in thier heads. (LOL). Listen to this picture i had of you: You were about in your 30’s to 40’s (even though i’ve seen all your videos and you don’t really look that old–just wise), you had graduated from UC Irvine after studying music the traditional way of course but had this amazing way of teaching music by ear that was unbelievable given your classical training background. (LOL). Just the other day, i mentioned to someone that “I think UC Irvine has a great music school because germaine griggs went there and if you knew germaine griggs you would immediately hop on it. LOL again. All I can say is “oh mah goodness”. I’m a classically trained pianist trapped in a wanna playbyear body. All my life, i’ve loved music and wanted to play the piano. My parents “made” me play everything but the piano. So when i became an adult, I found myself a piano teacher (both of my children also play the piano), brought myself a piano (not just like that but i’ll skipp that part) and bammed there it was. Until i got saved, wanted more than anything to play for the Lord but found myself limited playing traditional sheet music in a hopping baptist church. I searched everywhere, read books, scoured the internet and found your site years ago. I purchased the 300 series–still have them on VHS and still watch them over and over, purchased the 300-page book (i was probably one of those early ones), purchased some other stuff along the way from you, later joined the GTMC and now i can’t wait for the Transformed Musician. All the while thinking that you were this formally educated musician–lol. Well i have to say to all of your readers, Germaine is absolutely correct when he says he is giving us short cuts without sacrificing any of the theory– i can’t figure out how this guy even knows half of what he knows but its spot on–I’m not a professional so don’t get me wrong but i have literally paid thousands of dollars for what he is sharing for free and i still could not figure out how to apply all the expensive stuff i learned until HearandPlay came along….I was just like your first student==nobody wanted to s show me anything–even my piano teacher (one of them because the other one was great) told me that playing by ear WAS NOT music. The closest she would let me get to playing black gospel music was Rag Time from sheet music. That’s because she wanted me to keep coming back– I even tried moving ahead always, on my lessons, hoping she would speed it up a bit after all i already knew how to read music just did not know how to play the piano but no, she said it takes time. Well i’ll stop here but wanted to say Thank you and Thank you– You are awesome to say the least. May God continue to Bless You. Sandra

See my post under The Basics Forums, Beginner Questions and Discussions, “Jermaine’s Role- Not so Much Revealing Secrets” for details.

Basically, I’m so ignorant that I fall off of his chart. Green beginners need to have a place on the chart, because they need to transform themselves from a music lover to a music player. Everything is a weakness and everything needs to be improved, and nothing is understood. It has been very hard for me to figure out where to start, that is, where the very beginning is, and to ignore everything else until I get Hear and Play 702 under my belt. It took a lot of looking and reading and listening to even find this course on the site, as well as figure out that this is the place to start. After this, maybe I’ll be ready for the 300 page book, and perhaps after the book, I’ll have a place on the chart- be enough of a musician to be transformed.

Please don’t ignore us new ones– I’m been trying for years to get a handle on this (I’m 60, and lessons using notation were a failure), and have put in a lot of time and thinking this past week trying to figure out where I need to go and where I fit in. I DO know that ear training is the route (I’m not sure what a key is, but I’m often able to pick it out by ear, although I did not understand the CD “Finding the Key”) but that’s all I know! I’m sure there are many thousands of “latent, frustrated musicians without a clue” like me out there, just waiting for this opportunity!

And please consider adding guitar stuff, which is much harder than piano; there are a lot of guitar lovers who are even worse off than those struggling with piano. Around here, acoustic guitar is often used in churches.

Hi Jermaine,

I was on this site several months ago working through some of the 60 or so free lessons you had posted for beginners. I was deciding between your original course or some other guy’s. I bought the other guy’s course because I thought some of your lessons were quite heavy on theory and while I ate it up, I was sure the 300 page course was going to be overwhelming, and I wanted a simpler approach. Well, I worked that other course and soon ran out of steam because it lacked THEORY. So then I came back just in time to see the new video lessons you put out and was following the blog posts and now these new reports and the new MT course coming out just feels so perfect..I only hope I can get on that priority list and be at my computer the moment this thing is launched so I can get my copy! I’m not necessarily out to play black gospel music, but the course is so comprehensive I don’t see how any aspiring piano player could pass it up!

I also ordered the 702 course and got the Monthly Music Mentor package before you announced the MT course but I am not sorry and I will still do the MMM thang because in that original audio “No Time to Waste” CD you got me all fired up with your talk about goals and persistence and patience in practice and I realized I was not giving my piano playing a chance unless I committed. So I really did, Jermaine! I wrote my goals down and taped them to my piano and decided on a time when I could practice…5:38 in the morning. I am a housewife with 3 little kids and I homeschool, so this is the only time I can commit to. I even made it part of my goal page to account for this time to you and the community by posting my practice times weekly (sorry for the long post, ya’ll but this is finally working for me and I hope you guys give the Monthly Music Mentor a chance):

11/11 5:38-6:46
11/12 5:44-6:57
11/13 5:44-6:49
11/14 5:45-6:35
11/15 5:45-6:49

I now look forward to this time, and it gets me so excited about music that I have to get on the computer sometime during the day to see what’s going on at hear and play…and plan my practice for the next day. I used to work out at this time every day back when I was in the Coast Guard..and the reason I know I can do this practice time was that when I was faithfully going down into the hold every morning to do my 1/2 hour on the StairMaster, one day I went down and the thing was broke…I mean, it didn’t break under me, but I was almost sure I was the one who broke it! Then later they asked the person who broke it to come forward but I was too scared…maybe my goal should be to break my piano so I can get a fancier one but then how could I do without it??? Thank you so much Germaine!

I’m still waiting on you to hopefully get into a free quick explanation of jazz reharmonization and splitting scale degree chords into tonal, sub-dominant, and dominant. lol You know really break it down so people know how to replace chords in their patterns to give it a different feel.

The Transformation article really hit home on what to practice.

All those long years of piano lessons…all that money…but I never did learn how the notes and chords relate to each other. All I could do was read sheet music, and that gets old! The piano teacher was sorry to lose my money when I left, but I’d have left A WHOLE LOT SOONER if I’d had Jermaine’s lessons back then (grin)! He has the genuius to break big subjects down into small, spoon-sized bites so anyone can “get it.” Not just musicians, but ANYONE. Nothing out there compares to his courses–nothing else out there will get up up and playing (and sounding good) as fast. It’s such a thrill when you can play something and it actually sounds really, REALLY good!!

Germain,

We have never met, but you know me sooooo well! I am 61 and have been retired since 55. I have been blessed to have been around and worshiping with “anointed” gospel musicians for the last 10 years. Two of my best friends (one now with the Lord) are/were “off-the-chart” talented and work/ed hard to keep their skills (and they would say gifts) polished so they could lead God’s people in worship. These guys would share anything with me, but for the most part, and I think partly out of respect, I would not ask them for advice. BUT, I knew that they had something special, something that was very different from the red-green-blue (C-E-G) that I painted with. They added the most interesting and beautiful pastels and variations to their palet (like lavender and rose) that turned the ordinary into the spectacular and really enhanced the worship.

I have several of your courses and even though I have been playing for most of my life, they were and are challenging. The “Next Level” guide, for me, really pinpointed exactly why I am still where I am in my playing. I “know” a little bit, in some areas more, about each of the elements in the matrix. But, I haven’t really mastered any one completely. I loved the 44 page manual and the missing chapter.

Until a month ago, I was a premium member, but being a bit discouraged, and kind of adjusting for the recent economic events, I dropped my membership. I just wanted to tell you, that these last two freebees and the promise of a chance to get in on getting “Transformed” has changed my mind, and I am going to sign up again.

I was impressed by your honesty and gentle spirit in the audio of how H&P came into being. Great story all around. Thanks for sharing it and thanks for what you do.

Your catch phrase of “If you can hear it you can play it” was instrumental in helping me know deep down that if I could hear it then I could play it. Your sharing philosophy is phenomenal and reminds me of a line in a song – “Give and it will come back to you, good measure pressed down, shaken together and running over”.
Thank you very much. Keep the good work.

This and your uncanny ability to explain music theory has really helped me in my keyboard playing. Your DVD’s have helped me to feel unafraid of those unwieldy chord names because of your clear explanation. Your sharing philosophy is phenomenal and reminds me of a line in a song – “Give and it will come back to you, good measure pressed down, shaken together and running over”.
Thank you very much. Keep the good work.

thanks alot Mr Griggs, I have been following for a few years now and have loved your humbleness and willingness to share. I have went for piano lessons from a young age, and I felt that the music sheets restricted my playing, and eventually I drifted away from them- then came you :-) yor play by ear system has helped in ways that I cannot express, now I dont have to fumble and look to sheets as I can now apply your systems and work out songs in a short peiod of time, I am still working but I know that I will get there soon ad very soon- tc

This is so great…5 years of personal, formal music instruction weren’t able to quantize that for me in such a way! I think that somewhere up Jermaine’s sleeve, he had some crazy revolutionary, tucked-in-under-his-sleeve resource that taught him all of this. Either that, or the School of Hard Knocks is now handing out honorary doctorates. :) Either way, now I know exactly where I am at and exactly where I am going, or where I need to go. Before, my learning was always about getting the next chords, or getting the next new contemporary way to play the same old progressions, but I see this has progressed and graduated into such an intricate system, that I can only envision down the line music courses in college (and I have studied Music Theory in College) will be struggling to incorporate into their curricula. Now I have a flowchart, or rather a road map to set concrete plans, goals, and directives to reach a new other level in my ministry. And I see exactly “in living color” the areas in which I majorly lacked.

Thanks again a million times over, Jermaine and dedicated staff and instructors!

I grew up playing in the church. I took piano lessons at an early age. After a short while I would memorize pieces when my teacher thought I was reading the music. I learned my gospel techniques by listening to a lot of CD’s. I learned the gospel chords in my favourite keys of C, F, G and D. Any other key limited me to playing the basics. I didn’t properly understand or could name the chords I was playing. Your courses have taken me back to basics where I am learning about scales and chord theory to build towards what I have already learnt by ear and to progress further having that understanding. Thanks Jermaine.

Thank you for the emails and the Musicians Transformations Report. I actually don’t know too much about playing the keyboard, but I was placed in a position where I am required to learn more about playing music. I honestly only know few basic chords by memory and I am trying my best to learn as many chords as I can and fill-ins, etc. I also have learned through your website how important it is to focus my attention on practicing my scales & learning the number system. I tried to get help from a few people, but they were hesitant to help and it was really encouraging to see that you started out in a similar situation. As I stated before I really don’t know much about playing the keyboard, but I try to purchase different programs, books, videos, etc. (including a program from hearandplay.com) to help me get a better understanding of what I need to do and what I am missing. I noticed that in the report you stated that this report is to help the players get to the next level & I am one of the people that have a strong desire to move from where I am currently because it gets frustrating knowing you want to go somewhere but not knowing where to go or how to begin going where ever. It’s also hard trying to ask different people questions and each person give you a different explanation. I have been continuously reading the report over and over to make sure I have an understanding. I even read different sections to my husband because I was so excited to have a new resource to help me improve. God blessed me with someone that helps me for about 15 min. every week. It’s awesome although sometimes I lack the understanding that’s needed at that time. I always try to take listen & take notes for later because I will eventually understand it. It is nice to see that you explained the 2-5-1 pattern in more detail because that is one of the things that I am currently struggling with. Listening to your audio files and reading your reports have really encouraged me to keep moving forward with learning and trying to perfect my keyboarding skills because I am frequently approached by others that desire to play the piano. I always tell them I will show you what I know although I don’t know much and God keeps blessing me as I bless others.Anyway, I said all that to say thank you for sharing.

Dear Jermaine,

I never had piano lessons, but learned to play by ear and then expanded by “looking over the shoulders” of players and watching their chords. Then I would sit at the piano and just experiment with chord variations, without understanding what these were called. From reading your free instructions I feel I now have the tools to expand on this, understand what cords to use and really get my cords to sound richer. Thanks so much.

Ok so i’m finished reading the 44 pager and the 29 pager and WOW! I also listened to your personal audio–it was very inspirational–I still can’t believe you are not a formally trained musician–where do you get this stuff? God is Good! I was amazed at the practice chart so i wanted to let you know that I WORKS. People, it works! I kid you not. I have just learned (it took me 2 hours straight) all 12 Major keys! and get this, i used the fingering chart from the 300 page workbook to make sure i had Perfect Practice. I started at turtle speed, just like you said and bam. (now i must admit that i already knew C, F, G, Ab) but I never ever played the keys in sharps in any sheet music in because, well what’s the use– I’ve always told myself that sharps were way too hard– i never imagined my self playing 5 flats muchless bothered to figure out that it was the 6th tone of the scale right before it. And you know what, sharps are easier (at least for me) to play than flats. I took the scales box out of the PP list and just worked on that because the chart told me that was one of my weaknesses. I still can’t believe it. I went back down stairs, plugged in electric piano and put the headset on (folks are sleeping and for the life of me i can’t understand why they don’t want to hear me playing all day and night–LOL) just to try and play all 12 major scales in the order of the circle of fifths to see if i still remember (silly me cause i could not believe it) and guess what– i can still play it. I’m also learning a lot of other stuff from your freebies–like i need to stop robbing God of His time–i need to crave out a time to practice each day and stick to it–because i know He’s not pleased with leftovers. I was convicted when i read the part about practicing because it reminded of how many times i rushed out to church services to play without proper practice. So thank you for reinforcing the necessary of discipline in “practice”. I also dug out my metrodone out of a box in the garage as well as my Hanon exercise book (i brought it years ago and used to play the exercises regularly but never really knew why i was playing them (’cause my teacher said so–LOL) I checked out the free Hanon lesson (#1) and it was similiar to number 1 in my book so i think i’ll use the book and work on the 1st ten until i can buy your DVD on Hanon (demonstration is better for me than the plain old sheet music). Well that’s what i learned today. I’ll keep waiting for the email for the MT. Sandra

What can I say! Thank you so much! All of the material is awesome! The lesson that really boosted me was how to make the polychords! How knowing four main chords in all 12 keys help you quickly make bigger chords. My playing was sounding so empty! But this technique makes me sound like I know what I’m doing! (smile)…thanks to you!

I was about to take some extra organ lessons and suddenly there was a significant unexpected shift in my finances so that caused me not to be able to take the lessons…then a couple of says later I checked my email and here you are with a FREE 44 page manual!

Jermaine, I was so excited…I knew God had blessed me with this…he knew I could not afford to take anymore lessons and here I am still getting the lessons I need for FREE!

Thank you Jermaine. You can’t possibly know how much you are adored and appreciated! Little people like me with a desire to play with limited resources cant say thank you enough!

Blessings to your family!

Jermaine,
I’ve been playing piano for 30 years. I’ve been struggling to take improvisation to another level but just have been stymied. Your Chords courses and all the written material–especially these last reports–have just opened up another path to explore. Your suggestions on how and what to practice should be engraved on the walls of every music classroom–you have to spend time every practice working on the basics and you have to work on new stuff. I’m really in awe of the depth of your knowledge of chords and harmony, and I”m inspired to try and achieve that same level of understanding. Thanks so much for sharing your love for music with us!

It is nice to have people like you on this planet earth who are not money conscious but rather are bent on helping others to grow and become great in life. I downloaded the stuff and i read through it. It was just mind blowing and it has helped me to believe i can transform my play by using your technique and with more practice. I fall in the category of people without a basic foundation per Se cos when i start i didn’t have anyone to teach me. I search for books and materials on the internet cos they were not available then in my area just for them to say “Our Service is not available in your Country”. well thank God you Came. God Bless you as you decide to impact your knowledge into others. Thanks and i hope that the baby is a boy? Yes he is a boy. Say me well to your family.

Hey Jermaine,

Word cannot express how grateful I am to God for putting you on this planet for such a time as this (now, that’s real talk). I am really grateful to you for being who you are, you are in one word to me “A Giver” and where I come from there is a saying that says Givers never Lacks, Jermaine you will not lack anything, now, that is not a prayer, it’s your reality and if you are a millionaire already you will be soon, it’s only a matter of time, it will happen (mark my word). you see you have tapped into a principle, that many cats out there don’t know about or may be know about, but won’t practice. I may not know you personally but the bible says that by their fruits you shall know them. In essence what I’m trying to say is thank you.

Thank you for your obedience, thank you for your tender heart, thank you for your understanding, thank you for the time you spent in laboring to acquire these knowledge and most of all thank you for sharing these knowledge.

You see the reason why I am overwhelmed and touched by your generosity in this report that you have put out there is because basically you were telling my story and I’m sure same goes for many others out there .You see, I have tried for many years to learn and master keyboard playing and music for that matter but no one to teach, the musicians that surround me were too busy hiding their stuff in fear that I would get better than them (basically the old age problem in the Gospel Kingdom as you have mentioned), then came along you (Jermaine) and troubled the water and you have helped a brother get whole. What works for me on this report is the way you have filled in the missing links. All my past queries such as how you use chords, progressions, circle of 5th and a lot more were answered and I cannot wait to jump right in and practice (“the right stuff, the right way”). Jermaine you are not only inspirational, you’re a Champ!

Man, you are blessed!!!!

Much love to you, your family (it is well with them) and your entire crew.

Peace!

Hi, Pastor Jermaine

From Cape Town, South Africa, I just want to say a very great big thank you and give you an awesome “God bless you”. I started out six months ago, saying that I would like to play the piano within at least six months. Well thanks to all your lessons, during prayer meeting two weeks ago, I put down my guitar and shyly walked up to the electric piano and played a few gentle tunes whilst a few people were sharing some experiences how God blessed them during the past week. Then in pre-practice for worship in church the following Sunday, I played a bit on the piano. Amazing. Before my six months target I actually was brave enough to venture out and play the paino in front of other skilled musicians. I really do thank you. Now all this “new” material and guidance. I think you must be an awesome and blessed person.

I actually started to learn to play piano because I wanted to teach disadvantaged children in our townships (I think that could be the same as your projects) to sing and to play musical instruments. (I play flute and guitar, without having learn’t to read music.) I felt the need to add piano, which will force me to learn to play it AND learn sight-reading, which in turn I then can share with my kids, as well as helping me with my other instruments. Your material has helped me tremendously to achieve that that objective. Not only did I benefit, but children with no money and no access to the net will also benefit from your lessons.

There is only one down side to this whole piano thing… my wife giving me the look when she walks past the piano and I have been sitting there for about two hours. She also has to patiently listen when I explain to her what one Pastor Jermaine Griggs so unselfishly made avaiable to his multitude of students…

God bless you and your family.

I’m struck by your abundance mindset. May you be truly rewarded a thousandfold for your deeds. I never had formal piano lessons so since I started playing the piano 3 years ago (now I’m 24), I’ve relied on online piano lessons, my ear, and spiritual inspiration for my growth. I find Hear and Play Music, Inc one of the top 3 resources for low beginner pianists, and easily the top resource for high beginner / intermediate pianists (My opinion ^^)

Hmmmm…what are the important changes/insights that I’ve applied to my playing as a result of the musician transformation system?

Chordal Command: the concept of “polychords” to form all the “big” and “bad” chords. Knowledge of the shortcuts and formulas made it so much easier

Pattern Proficiency: I used to just rely on the 1M,2m,3m,4M,5M,6m,7dim pattern. I’m in the process of acquiring the circle-of-fifths flow of music. I like the 2-5-1 2m or 2m7 >>> 5M or 5dom7 >>> 1M or 1M7 concept.

Ear Efficiency: To use the ear to come up with alternatives, the “Circular Major Scale” revolutionizes everything. I rely on my ear oftentimes and the concept of the “Circular Major Scale” makes me realize why songs flow in a certain way. I carry on these realizations and store them in my creative memory.

I’d like to be more detailed in my testimony and I hope to do that next time.
More power and may God bless you always!

Hello Jermaine, I’m gonna try to make this short, but I don’t know how successful I’ll be. :) Your programs, and dvds have not only made me better as a musician and a minister of music, but as a teacher as well, I give piano lessons, and it feels so great to know that I had a part in helping someone else became I musician for their church, whether they become a MOM (minister of music) and an MD, or just an associate musician. You have also been a blessing to me in the youtube world, I didn’t know how to post videos until you answered my questions, I started putting youtube videos up 8 months ago, and now I have 51 subscribers who tell me how much they love my playing, and ask me to learn, play, and teach songs to them, it also encourages me to know that some of my female subscribers are encouraged by the videos I post and by how well I play (in their opinion). Lately, I haven’t been taking youtube seriously, and I think I’ve been posting videos that have not been a very good quality of music, so I plan on doing better in that area, because my subscribers deserve better. I can now play major, minor, blues, and pentatonic scales in all 12 keys, (minors including harmonic and natural, I’m a little rusty on the melodic because it’s not very popular to me). I guess I better stop typing, you probably have enough to read… Thanks again, God’s richest blessing to you and your family, and I can’t wait for what ever else you have to offer. YOU ARE SUCH A BLESSING! Thanks again.

In Nov 2008 I lost my job of 18 years and so I decided to follow my passion and practice the piano everyday. It started out good but it seems that once again it landed on the back burner. This article I hope will jump start me again. Is 65 to old to learn to play the piano?

I have always loved music and wanted to play because somehow I felt that I possessed an innate talent. Over the years, I kept beginning lessons and
discontinuing them because of this talent never manifested itself. After
downloading some of the lessons and practicing them, I feel that there is
hope for me to succeed in playing coherent music. My gratitude cannot be
expressed for the insightful and simplistic ways chords and other music
fundamentals are taught. However, before I am considered an ingrate, let

I have been struggling for a long time to understand the rudiments of music. I have read theory books and paid for lessons, but never understood it enough to be motivated to practice.

In just one half hour beginning to read your section on Fundamental Fluency, I now understand how music works. I became very excited and actually began to love it.

I nearly gave up in despair of ever understanding it to the point that i could love it enough to want to excel in it. I NOW DO! I thank you for sharing this with us.

God Bless you!

Hi Jermaine, With my whole heart I give thsnks to you for this free report. I played piano as a child and now at 58 got a urge to play again. I do sight reading but never knew anything about chords and how scales were formed ect, What a lot I have to learn and what a challenge. What a good thing the Lord has send apon my path to take my mind of my problems. I have a son who had a accident (fell off a horse) seven years ago. He has severe brain damage and suffers from epilepsy and violent mood swings, He is Gods walking miracle as he can do a lot of things for himself, though still severely mentally handicaped.
Anyway I received your e-mails for the past few months and are always looking forward to them. I love the pictures ect, feel like your family. When you sew you reap, may your harvest be as abundend as you have sewn into my life as well as in others. Be blessed in the Lord. Anna-Marie

Jermaine, I just want you to know that, I am by nature a drummer and bass player by nature, I have also mastered guitar as my primary instruments. I have always wanted to learn to play the keys though, and until I came across hearandplay.com, I have always found that most piano courses offered very little explanation that made any sense to me for the lessons they covered. Basically, I am sure I am not the only one to find these types of courses intimidating, and thus, ended up just being a dabbler if you know what I mean? Since I have started receiving your emails with lessons made in a format that was very simple to follow and that made total sense of what you were trying to convey, I have become a much better musician on the piano, even my colleagues have nopticed the difference in my playing. Now, the “Musician’s Transformation Method” and accompanying charts have made so many more things I had been in mystery about crystal clear to me, and on a level I never thought I would ever achieve. I remain in awe with this method, its’ ease of use and clarity of information being delivered. I just want to thank you for finally breaking open a door for me that had been so much a mystic art in my mind. I now have such a love for playing the keys that I have never before experienced by any other means(and I have tried many), and I now can add to my talents, the ability to play piano in even an improvisational situation, with success and no more fear of where to go, what to play, when to play it. Again, thank you so very much Jermaine, I will always treasure the “Musician’s Transformation Method”, which you have allowed me to download for free and the accompanying charts, 29 page additional supplement and the associated audio file. This has totally changed my musical life, again, all I can do is thank you and continue to spread your name and website to everyone I come across, that I see struggling just like I was to make sense of the piano, so that they too may experience what I have in a very mystifying door finally being opened up, in such a way, that it actually makes sense to me now. I am sure I am not alone in this sentiment, just read your comments, they say it all…:)

Since reading the music transformation report and the follow-up “missing chapter” report, my practice sessions have reached a whole new level. I now have purpose during my practice sections. I warm up with scales and some hanon finger exercises. Then I play chords (triads currently) following the circle of fifths. I already see progress. Next I play a familiar sing for a while. I listen while playing to find things I can do differently and places I can add a little something extra. Then I practice a new song that my choir is working on or that I just want to learn on my own. Then I wind down and play a familiar song again, so that I end my practice sessions on a happy note. The music transformation has helped a lot, and it came right on time because I used to just sit at my keyboard and play randomly. I found myself stuck playing the same old thing, and believe me it was the same old and boring thing. But now, I’m learning and understanding new exciting concepts and principles that help me and others. I felt proud to be able to pass on your report to other aspiring musicians I know. Many problems you spoke of in the report about musicians in the church were spot on, so I’m glad you let God use you to spread your talents so that those talents can go out and make more talents. Thanks Jermaine.

I have learned-and am still learning-so much about music over the last year and a half thanks to you, local guitar wizard and teacher Bobby Griffin and bass guru Alex Sampson. Even though I am a basssist, using your piano studies have helped me more than I could have ever imagined, especially your reports regarding Musician Transformation, Number System, Chords and Patterns, in addtion to you Piano By Ear course.

Again, thank you so much, Jermaine, for blessing so many musicans by sharing the gifts that God has blessed you with!!!!

May God continue to bless you, your family and your business!!!!

Hi Jermaine, Words cannot expressed the awesome spiritual breakthrough I have just coming by your website a couple of days back ‘cos of prompting within my spirit that I have possibly the ability to just play by hearing piano. This has been an unexplainable gift that I used to possess years back when I was young. For many reasons, I have not the priviledged to pursue this talent until recently in my church fellowship activity did I share about my once lost talent that I have not developed further or invested well for the Lord’s glory. This has prompted me to search the website for people like myself to teach myself. Glad to have found you and your website. Although I have yet to comprehend everything that you have shared even in your first few lessons, been a newbie at my age, my spirit danced with joy and I am truly excited and confident that under your open sharing from your sincere open heart, I feel safe that I will progress well with your comprehensive ‘Musician Transformation’ course and be able to play in my fellowship group sooner. The Lord’s granting me the desires of my heart through your website. Thank you so much for caring to share your gift and talents with us. Musical Worship ushers the presence of the Lord and releases the blessing of the Lord to His people. May the Lord bless you and your family abundantly in the coming launch and all the works of your hand. Be Richly Blessed in your givings and rejoicing with you. Pauline, Perth, Western Australia

I cannot explain with mere words how much this material has really helped me update my skills on the piano. I have been hearing about the theory on the usage of the circle of fourths and fifths, but has never been able to apply it.

With this simple and well self-explanatory instructions on the 44-pg download, I have been able to apply and use that which had eluded me for a long time now. I am more than grateful for this input.

I only pray that you continue this good work so that people like me can get to appreciate some of the theories in music. Thanks and thanks again for this. I really appreciate it.

My prayer is to get to play like you very soon, applying every techniques I have learnt from this and discovering other application routes.

We are really tight on finances now and your free download came at the right time. I really believe it was a gift to me. I play in the church- accompany the youth choir and would really love to be able to improvise a lot more than what I do and also play gospel music.

I have been playing piano for years and i do follow the circle of fifths but your teaching on how the minor scale starts on the 6th degree of the major scale is awesome. Never thought of it that way – makes it so simple.

I loved the section on building polychords. Such a rich full sound.

Thank you so much and God bless you abundantly.

MAN … I’ve been trying to play like a seasoned for about 15 years now. I’d play for my church choir”S”, but get kicked to the curb every time somebody new would come. Those musicians would leave and I would be asked to play again, but only to get kicked to the curb again when someone new came. So I lost my motivation to play and practice. I also felt kinda used (I was the only musician for years, and I never made more than $40 a week playing for 2 or 3 choirs every week and teaching all the parts, so I imagine im not TOO bad).

After reading your 44 page download, it made the light come on and I feel motivated now. I feel I can go past the ceiling I seem to have hit. I have a few of your products, but for some reason that 44 pages ignited something. THANKS

Mr.Griggs!

Maaaan, I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve sent thank you emails for the products I’ve ordered over the last month or two. But ‘Thank You’ is not enough to express what you’ve blessed me with.
I’m a Bass player first, I’ve collected many books on theory and concepts over the last 8yrs. I basically had information overload. Hungry to learn but had no direction on HOW to really apply the knowledge. I’ve had lessons with instructors over the years but nothing that compares with the way you’ve outlined concepts here. Real simple, clear, straight forward breakdowns that even a child could understand.
As mentioned, I’m a Bass player first but I also produce music. I’ve had no keyboard training whatsoever, just navigating across the board as best I could. Like the name of your Company, I would just ‘hear and play’ my way through….until now!.
Your Musician Transformation Guides are real revelations, I can’t grasp the info fast enough!. I know it’ll take time, but I’m doin’ the work and I already see, feel and hear the difference in my approach to makin’ music.
Thank you for taking the time and sharing this valuable resource with us all, God Bless.

Hi Jermaine i would like to say that i enjoyed the 3 downloads that you posted,i also think that they are very helpful at lease for me. I have already changed my way of pratic, in the past i had problems staying on something until i got it all. I would often learn some of it and move on to something else, but thanks to the downloads i don’t do that any more.

again thanks a lot for your help

Hi Jermaine,

I read the 44 pager on my way to San Antonio Tuesday. I really enjoyed it. I am so proud of you. There is still a lot that I don’t understand yet, but it will come because I am determined. I have prayed for years to learn how to play gospel music not for church, but for myself. GOD is answering my prayers through you. I think I am Musician #2. You give us so much information, I don’t know where to start. All I can do is read music. I knew the three major chords, 1-4-5. Now, I know the diminished, augmented. I don’t have the gift of playing by ear, but from your teachings, Jermaine, I will develop the ear. You are a genius and you should be on Oprah’s show. You are doing the Lord’s work and that is why you are going to be very, very, very successful because you are sharing your talents and gifts with your fellowmen. You are doing the Lord’s work and he is very proud of you, just as I am.

A whole new world of using chords is opening up to me. I am learning to use chords to “color” my music like an artist would use a paintbrush and a palette of paints to get just the right shade of blue or green on the canvas. In a way, it is a bit overwhelming because there is so much to grasp. Progressing from one chord to the next while using more than just the diatonic notes is a bit daunting right now. But as time goes on, the newer more complex chords will roll off my fingers as easily as the basic diatonic chords do now. Patience, patience and persistence. They WILL pay off!

well I finally got my answer to what is the difference between a minor and a major. our piano player at church said she didn’t know, I don’t know if that was the truth or if she just didn’t want me to know. crazy huh! but it is the best chart I have ever seen, I have had lessons on and off for over 3years and still can’t play a thing. But now I understand more than I did, and that is saying a lot. Thank you so much, you will, and are blessed by God. PTL…
I never understood any of what they told me, if they told me at all, I didn’t understand. So I ask if they would write it down, they did and it made no sence to me at all.

Hey Jermaine,

I really enjoyed the recordings and I haven’t read all of the reports as of yet, I’m still reading. I think once I get off into applying what I’m reading to what I need to do in learning my music and also be willing to share what I will learn I will be fine. I’m making this material a big part of my life because I really do want to play music the way God intended. Not to be selfish with it and to be skillful. I want to play for the joy of the Lord and for the deliverance of others as well as myself. I like the encourging words you have in the things you talk about in your life and in the e-mails you send. I try to look things from all angles as my mom use to say. I really miss her, but she always knew what to say to make things look a little brighter for you. I will listen to the audios again and read the reports over and over I’m sure. I will get back with you later, until then continue to be blessed you, your family, and staff.

Hey Jermaine, praise the Lord. It’s such an eye opener to know that by combining C min to a G min ultimately yeild a C min9 Chord. In addition, in the key of C major, one can move up the 1tone and 5tone from a major seventh to a major 9th and the list goes on and on with chords/patterns….Thanks a lot, because of you, I am now able to hormonize in all 12 keys. I value your hard work, and I am really looking forward to taking advantage of the musician transformation methods at hand. Finally, I pray that the Lord would bless and preserve you and your family in every area of you life.

I’ve always wondered where I could continue my schooling as a church musician.

I know with this material, I have enough to last a lifetime. The possibilities are endless.

Just scrolled through over 430 messages to leave mine and reading the comments by so many people feeling gratitude, like me, for your teaching insights and free downloads gave me a wonderful feeling of connection to them and you Jermaine. You really have musically enlightened so many desiring musicians, even very well trained ones, with your synthesis of complex concepts! What really impressed me was the fact of the flow being the same no matter what key you’re in and the 4th.’s being so powerful that they keep their bonds in every key. I learned the circle of fifths the clockwise direction just to learn scales and so missed this concept completely. I now have a new way of understanding how music works! Thank you teacher.

Jermaine is the best piano teacher I have ever had before to meet Jermain I was not able to improvise anything.I meet him in the web then I got his incredible piano book called “The secrets to play piano by Ear”and from these day I began to grow as a pianist.Now endly I can seat in a party for one hour or more and stay there improvising all the time I want,but the most great thing I could do with my new knowledges was to recognise all the songs I have always loved and then put it at the piano by myself ,by Ear alone without help, that was really great for me and since thar day I am very happy.God bless Jermaine for helping so many pianist arund the world to improve their Piano techniqs.

Dear Jermaine

Your are truly phenomenal! In 40+ years of studying music, I have met one other musician who was able to actually TEACH where I could understand it. Problem is I’ve always approached music from an intellectual perspective, instead of developing my ear (that’s my weakness). So when you speak of the number system, that’s right down my alley!

I like the way you make things simple, all you have to do is understand the formula and apply it to whatever key you want. SIMPLE!

The Lord has blessed you with the gift of music, and he’s using you to give it to us! It is obvious that you are a real MINISTER OF MUSIC. I see your love for sharing your gift in the videos, emails and the freebees. You shouldn’t be surprised by the responses to your products, YOU HAVE THE LORD’S FAVOR!

Loved the pics of your wife and daughter. God’s grace and mercy multiplied in your lives.

Hi Jermaine,

I know you get tons and tons of emails but I just wanted to thank you personally for your hard work and all of the information you pass along. I purchased your “The Secrets To Playing Piano by Ear” book in March of 2007. It’s funny, the date I signed the book was 3/7/07 and I said that I would complete the course in 5 weeks. Lol… Yeah right…. Prior to 3/7/07 I had been making tracks with very little knowledge of theory, and since 3/07/07 I have stayed in my comfort zone and made track after track staying pretty much in that zone. Prior to studying your techniques the only technique I knew that was to stay in key and I’ll be ok. After a while you realize that you need to know more! I knew how to stay in key by watching Terence Fleming over at the now http://www.todaysbeats.net or Hip Hop In Session. Great guy who passes along information in a very nice way that I can relate to. I found you through him. But back to my original
point. I am kind of picking up where I left off which was Chapter 6: Major Chord Progressions, along with incorporating the 44pg and 29pg report and practice techniques. One of my weaknesses in life is organization but reading your reports have motivated me to “Do The Right Thing”, stick with it and stop procrastinating and become the musician I want to be. Also has reminded of some things I should be doing around house… :) I will be able to practice 2 hours a day. One hour as soon as I get home from work and one hour before I go to bed. I just had my first child (3 mos old now) at 38 years old and of course I want him to learn how to play as early as possible. Give him that early foundation as a child that I never had. Knowing that I will stick to my guns this time! I anticipate achieving the goal of the “Transformed Musician” by the end of the year and maybe even before that! Who knows. I know I am
not far from that goal though. So thank you for giving us a blueprint of how to reach our goal so that we can fulfill our dreams of getting the music out of our heads for others to enjoy! Keep you posted on my progress!

Thanks again for all that you do!

Hi Jermaine

hope this registers on your blog. I’ve sent in comments twice this week on the 44 and 29 page reports but your staff asked that I reply on your blog. (If this one doesn’t make it to you, I guess your staff needs to cut and paste it into the right spot so you can read it.

I want to thank you especially for the Eight P’s for Perfect Practice. While it may take me a while to fill all the categories of your Transformation chart, I can start immediately on correcting my practice habits. I have used this method before to lose weight but it was never labeled in a way I could remember it. Now I just need to tick the p’s off on my fingers to know I’ll succeed.

Hi Jermaine,

I wanna first thank God almighty for blessing you with the talent to show others how to play Gospel music in the best forms and with the best chords. I really enjoy going through the site and now that you have given this report, it has propeled me into a deeper level of playing. I realize now more about chord relationships and how the circle of fifths really work and trust me, i am going to learn much much more. I pray that you will be spiritually inclined to do more of this kind of stuff and implore us as gospel musician to go deeper and deeper into our playing. Thank you very much and may the blessings of the Almighty be upon you like never before.

Dear Jermaine,

Learning music fundamentals for me has always been a matter of not being able to see the forest for the trees. Your report (and lessons in general) fill that gap. I am getting the big picture and understanding concepts for the first time ever — not just memorizing random bits of information that seem more difficult to juggle as I acquire more. I get it! Thank you!

Jermaine,
Your courses have made a big impact on my desire to play. The teaching methods such as the numbering system, progressions, circle of fifths, etc… really help put the music into something obtainable. Piano playing finally makes sense.

Still got a long ways to go, but we’re heading for higher ground. Keep up the great work. I can only imagine how many lives you have impacted for God’s glory.

Thank you so much for your help. I have been taking piano lessons for about 5 years and while I have improved over what I was to begin with, I have always felt like I was missing something, that there was a piece missing that I needed but I didn’t know what it was. My teacher has tried to teach me the concepts you talk about but in a random, disjointed way that I never seemed able to “catch” onto. Living in a very rural area I only have dial up internet available so I cannot take part in the video and audio that you offer – takes way to long to load – but I appreciate the written instruction so much.

Hi Jermaine:

I have been taking piano lessons for 7 years and I would like to be able to read music quicker than I am. Do you have a course that you could recommend that would help me with this problem.

Thank you so very much.

Jermaine, Thank you so much for the MT 44pg report and the 29pg Practice Guide. I was desperately needing a practice guide. Are you serious about having an MT digital version or would it be better to try to get this course on DVD?
You have a beautiful family.

Jermaine,

I played piano from 1st grade through 11th grade and stopped because all I was being taught was classical music. I wanted to learn how to play by ear and more importantly play black gospel music. I started to pick up piano again when I came across your site and your products. I especially like the way you have laid out the progression of learning piano in your most recent guide, Musician Transformation.

I am excited because you have given me the means to get back to playing piano again. I have learned and understood more in the short time I discovered your site than in the years when I was actively learning and playing. But the one thing that I have applied as a result of the musician transformation system are the practical steps for organizing my practices. I was never really sure what I was missing in terms of the best way to optimize the time I spend practicing until you released the Musician Transformation guide.

Thanks for laying things out plain and simple. God bless you in your business and ministry.

Hey Jermaine,

I really liked how you separated the whole piano playing process into five basic ideas (FF, CC etc.). It really simplified the whole process for me. I used to think that playing by ear was a mystical talent – you either have it or you don’t. It’s great to know that it’s possible to learn how to play by ear if you work hard at certain parts of your piano playing.

Jermaine: Your latest “Missing Chapter” is something I should have had many, many years ago. This, coupled with “The Musician Transformation” has answered so many questions — in particular, the Circle of Fifths. I took classicas piano lessons as teen but am now 80 years old and trying to do what I always wanted to do — play something, anything by ear. I feel that your two publicians have put me well on to that path with a solid approach. Many thanks and am looking forward to future works. Please dont fail me now!!!

Elder Griggs,
Thanks for your honesty in the audio. I am praying for you and your family. The transition guide is a big help, I think my light is coming on. I can see some things that were not so clear before. I can get it a little better than just watching the video. Thanks for your spirit of excellence. I’m a late bloomer. I have seen the benefits of praise in a service with people who are burdened with overwhelming problems and I desperately want to see and hear music that is beyond 3 chords or three fingers with one to the left :). Thank you. I can get it and not make the Lord or the church ashamed. I don’t get paid, but I don’t want to sound like I don’t get paid. Let’s go foward and conquer this music thing to make all of the church glorius in the garment of praise!

Hi Jermaine! Thanks for the 29-pg report. I never really understood how to form progressions with the circle of 5ths. Thanks for taking out the time to sketch (in different colors) the various progressions. That alone is a huge transformation for me. Once again, thanks, and God bless You.

Jermaine:
For a few years I have been receiving your emails, but I have never ordered any product. I got discouraged years ago about playing, but the desire has never left me. I took lessons when I was a child, and I’ve known for a long time that playing by ear was what I’ve wanted/needed. I don’t even own a keyboard anymore. Now you’ve given us the 44/29 page reports, and I’m excited-for the first time in a long time. NOW I’m motivated to order, whatever it takes. God has me in position to have lots of time, and I now know that one of the reasons is that IT’S TIME to work on the GIFT that’s been dormant in me all these years. Your Musician Transformation give-away is PRICELESS! God gave you the way to present what I’ve needed with simplicity and with clarity!!! I will reserve my MT set NOW, and I look forward to bringing back to you many good reports as I continue to work on a daily basis on what you’ve shared. May the Lord’s blessings overtake you and yours!

You will absolutely love it and the best part is everything is in archive so you can even go at your own pace, remind, revisit any time of the day.

Jermaine, you’ve outdone yourself this year. I really didn’t think you could top last year when you gave away the free video and started the club (which i was one of the fortunate members) but this is truly awesome. Wow.. I’m excited because i know my piano playing will grow in leaps and bounds. God bless you. It is truly a privilege to meet (virtually) such a highly favored yet humble and giving person.

She die… No one was ready for something like this. What I mean is you don’t know where death is. Now I have to be the church Musician. I wasn’t ready for this, but I was the only one in church that knew how to play the key board… (A little)… I’m that person in the first block of this new lesson FF block. I have pray to God to help me and if I get a hold, on this new lesson. I will practice harder then ever. Keep up the good work Jermaine and please keep me in your prayers.

I am very grateful for the free 44 page and 29 page Musician Transformation guide. I am #1. I’m just like your grandmother. I can play and carry a service, but I use the same sound. I also use the same chords, and it makes me feel intimidated to get up and play. I play at a white church. I’m the only musician who plays by ear. I’ve gotten so frustrated that I resigned from playing. I became spiritually weak, disappointed, discouraged and stayed home for over a month or longer. I know the Lord sent me to this church. HE hasn’t released me from going there, but released me from playing. I beleive this Musician Transformation will not only help me learn more, but it will help me with their style of music. I will be able to let WORSHIP flow and let the LORD have HIS way.

I grew up C.O.G.I.C. I’m a member of GMTC. I’ve been a member since last summer. I’ve learned a lot of the songs and played them in church Sunday mornings. They’ve made me look and sound like a transformed musician. I know I’m not where I could be because I can’t play in every key. Its frustrating to me, and they have NO clue. I’ve tried to explain it to them, but they don’t understand. They expect me to pull chords out of a hat, and play the songs that they give me at the snap of a finger. I don’t transpose because its my desire to be able to flow, and let the LORD have HIS way in EVERY service. Its not about me and I avail myself to HIM. Thank You soooooooooooo much for the opportunity to be able to learn what I’ve been trying to learn on my own since grade school. No one ever took the time to teach me. They offered and said they were going to, but NEVER took the time.

I know without a doubt that this is my season. I’ve walked into my season of growing spiritually. I’ve walked into my season of healing. I’ve walked into my season of leaning and developing a gift I was given at birth. I’ve tried understanding the circle of fifths. I’ve tried understanding the number system, but it goes right over my head. I can actually hear what your saying when I listen to the radio. I also used patters to learn a song that my church was singing without music. I used my ear to use chords from other songs that sounded similar. They were amazed! I was too, because I didn’t think I could do it. I play that song more fluently and have added some licks and tricks from other songs you’ve taught.

I practice daily! I know the LORD allowed me to stumble accross hearandplay for a reason. HE has a work that needs to be done to bring churches back to where they’ve strayed. I will continue to practice until I get it. I WILL GET IT with the LORD’s help. THANK YOU! GOD BLESS you and hearandplay.com!

May HIS peace be with you,

Faith Downing

Hello Jermaine, I just want to say a big thank you for Gospel 202 especially. I did not have a clue about number system and progression until I actually stumbled upon your website one day while trying desperately to get some help from the web. I’m telling you, this has really transformed my playing and the members in my Church are really impressed at the way I have improved. You spoke some time ago of musicians being selfish with their chords and that is so true. I’ve never being taught by anyone prior to me purchasing your DVDS and I’m really grateful for the help these DVDS have given me. I’m residing in the United Kingdom and I’m originally from Jamaica, but I’m telling you, these DVDS would do so well in these Countries if there was an outlet in these parts of the world. Especially in Jamaica where you have so many selfish and proud musicians who don’t seem to remember that they are doing a service to God and that God requires us to be humble before him. I would be so happy to help a trying musician. Actually I’ve been playing for free at my Church and I’ve come across musicians who will not play unless they are paid. God help them. Anyway thanks again and that movie clip was great, man, I thought I was watching MEN IN BLACK. In addition Jermaine, I have a new website up and running and I just want to use this facility to ask you if you would be willing to include a link of my website to yours as I would be honored to do the same for yours. God bless and keep up the good work.

That Transformation video was hooolarious….. I like the disclaimer too. That was so considerate. I cracked up laughing when JP said he didn’t have the $300.00. That was fuuunnny and then you floored me. In the mist of my laughing, to hear that you were offering the Transformation video free… I lost it. I couldn’t believe it. I was like, this guy is omazing…. I couldn’t shut my mouth, it was just hanging open. All I could say was OH MY GOD, I can’t believe it, free. What? How? Why? My mind was going through. It was like what is this guy going to do next, You just keep me wondering. As a member of GMTC, I have to say, the things you are doing keeps me excited. My plan is to keep supporting you even after I have gotten to the level that I want to, because I believe you are helping so many people.

I remember as a child watching my father play by ear. He would go around playing for different churches, but evry song was always the same sound, same progressions. You could tell that he could use some help. He would try to get people to show him riffs who were very good players, but they were always to busy. There was one person by the name of Craig Tyson, that I can remember who did take time out to help when he could. He use to come over the house every now and then and they wouild gather around the organ and play. I thank God for the time Craid did spend with my dad. My dad would be so excited. My dad never reach the level that he wanted to, I use to wish that he could find a permanent teacher. I am glad in this generation that God has touched you to help others, and with the Internet as a tool, so many people are being helped. I thank God for your passion and desire to help others. That’s what makes me want to support you as you support others. God Bless and Thank you for being so unselfish with the talent that God has given.

Hi Jermaine,

I was very suprised to receive your last video.Your love for music is just great, and i am glad that you are willing to share it with us for free.I think that you will be one of the leading musicians in heaven.I will do my best for tuesday.I hope that i will be one of the lucky ones because that stuff is just great.
I have take notice of the comments from other members, but they are to much for me to handle.I have a request and that is if you can bloq them out.
Ok.goodbye for now, and God bless.

You guys are absolutely unbelievable! I loved the video. It definitely resonates the scripture that says “a cheerful heart is good medicine – Proverbs 17:22” and then to find out that you all are giving the Musician Transformation package away for FREE. That’s mind-boggling! No wonder you guys are so extremely blessed. Someone once said “people don’t care how much you know until you show how much you care.” You all have shown that you really do care about the growth and development of other musicians. Thank God for you all and may you continue to be blessed beyond measure. I used to literally cry because I had no one to help me with my music. Since hooking up with you guys, however, I have more than enough resources to get the help that I previously longed for.

Hi Jermaine

First able let me say that I’m from Puerto Rico and never play a musical instrument in my entire life. So one day i decided to buy an used guitar to begin to play something and my best friends husband said to me that the guitar has the neck broken so it can’t be tuned. Then he gave me his piano and told me ” hey take this maybe you can learn to play it”. I become to search the internet until y found this site hearandplay.com. I saw that mission impossible video and was really funny and interesting. I hope i can get a copy of the music transformation course so i can get transformed to play gospel music.
god bless you and your family

Congratulations, Jermaine, on the Musician Transformmation package – the 44 and 29 page transcripts have really whetted my appetite and I look forward to learning mors and taking full advantage of the programme.

I’m full of admiration for your whole Hear and Play operation and your very personal and innovative approach – epitomised by the Coolest Video! Well done to you both!

And thanks for all your help so far.

Love the movie… I give you 4 **** stars. Just wanted to tell you. I love what you are doing. I been student of H&P for a while. And, I still have a long ways to go.I know I have to practice more than ever now. Our Musician had a stroke right in church while playing the keyboard. She die… No one was ready for something like this. What I mean is you don’t know where death is. Now I have to be the church Musician. I wasn’t ready for this, but I was the only one in church that knew how to play the key board… (A little)… I’m that person in the first block of this new lesson FF block. I have pray to God to help me and if I get a hold, on this new lesson. I will practice harder then ever. Keep up the good work Jermaine and please keep me in your prayers.
I for got to click on the follow-up box….sorry

I am 75 years old….began playing by ear when I was 7 or 8. I discovered that I couldn’t play ANYTHING I wanted to by playing by ear, and began taking music plus self-taught theory, dynamics, notes, scales and chords through the years. I have your Musician Transformation down load on my piano, plus the 29 page “Lost Chapter”, and am referring to it when I practice. I have finally reverted back to playing by ear. Thank you.
Oh…the video was cute and very entertaining.

I thought the video was very funny, you guys did a good job. I have been on your site since it began and the M.T. opened my eyes to what you have been explaining in your videos. I am looking for a new level in my playing, I know the theory but not how to put it in use. I am looking forward to getting a copy. God bless you!!!

All of your recently published information is great, however I think you should remind folks to use “The Numbers System” (that you sent out a few months ago) in conjunction with the new information. It’s a great tool to aide in the memorization process and it really ties things together. I can testify that it’s helped me tremendously! When I was young I took guitar lessons for years from some very good teachers. I started playing piano a little over a year ago. For years I had no idea what people were talking about when they would call out numbered progressions. I knew it was some kind of theory thing. I just accepted that I was weak in theory. You helped me to understand it overnight! I’m sure the horizontal way that the piano is laid out helps too! It makes it easier to see. God bless you and keep up the good work!

Min, Griggs!!!! You really will be a marked man after Musician Transformation is available to the masses!!! I now know why I’ve hit brick walls and stopped practicing faithfully over the years….NO PURPOSE OR PLAN. I used to practice my chords in the circle of fifths(clockwise)with inversions. I did progress faster than at any other time in my life of playing. However, I learned songs the slow, step method way and didn’t apply my chord practice to learning of the songs!!(I didn’t even make the connection between the two!!!) Thanks for all you have done for anyone who would desire to be a gospel musician(Yah really has blessed this ministry….It is a lesson to all saints…..If you want to grow and be blessed beyond measure….GIVE AND GIVE SOME MO’) Many that I’ve told about the website still can’t believe how much you give away for ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! free? In this day and age when money is at a premium? FREE? YES….FFFFFFRRRRRRREEEEE!!!

Again, I thank the Holy Ghost in you truly reaching out to the masses. I can truly say…I have been taught(and still being taught) by the Griggs/Powell Method of playing gospel music(with minor help from White,Bereal,Hartwell,etc.)

Didn’t mean to write soooo much!!! I’m pumped and psyched now!!! Thanks Again!!

Hello, Jermaine.

I am a former piano player and have recently – after more 30 years – tried to return to playing. I already receive your newsletter and hope to be one of the fortunate recipients of the Musician Transformation course.

I am planning to purchase an electronic keyboard in the near future. Do you have any recommendations? I am not looking for anything extravagant since I am trying to re-learn how to play piano. I am just looking for a set that will allow the grand piano “sound” and maybe a few effects. I have looked at Yamaha, Casio and Roland keyboards, and recently found the website of the company who is re-introducing the Rhodes electric keyboard.

Any way . . . . the video was interesting . . . .

May God bless your family with your expected arrival.

Regards,

Ibrahim

Yeah, that video is hiliarious. Gets the point across in a very straight forward way however. 1,000 Free… Well, like you said most of those will go to your Gospel Club members… but oh well…. I’ll do what ever I need to do to get my hands on that package. Except steal it of course! :) I don’t want to put myself in JP’s position in the video. Lol.. :) By the way, I finished making my flash cards last night and it really does work Jermaine. I mean I’m not calling out the tones as fast as you yet but I will. I still have to visualize and count in my head but yes it does work. Now I’m organizing my practice schedule. It’s not as easy to make that practice schedule as it may seem. Especially when your breaking everything into segments, you need to know exactly what you are going to practice before you start so you don’t waste time. Thanks again for all you do and I hope to be one of the lucky one’s!

May God continue to Bless you!

COUNTDOWN TO BLAST OFF! Hey Jermaine, after seeing your intriguing Mission Impossible video, my heart is racing so fast from the anticipation of your new Musician Transformation dvds, I’m having a “fierce urgency of now moment!” I have since 07 bought most all of your stuff including the 300-pg book. I’ve never gotten anything from you for free. But this is the most exciting gift I could ever imagine. Since the launch of your 44pg and 29 pg booklets, I have read them and listened to your 90 min. audio, which inspired me to get back to work and get serious. I can once again see myself playing keyboard for the MLK day in January for the community center.

However, after reading the MT report and practicing I wondered, “Oh Lord, how in the world am I going to scrape enough money together to get the MT dvd packet?” I’ve learned so much just in the 44 and 29 page until I’ve just got to have the MT packet. When I clicked on your Mission Impossible video and you made the announcement I nearly jumped out of my skin! I’ve been playing for so many years and have been stuck. This not only gets me out of the hole but has the potential to launch me far beyond my dreams! The day of your launch is my husband’s birthday and Oh, what a wonderful gift that would be for him because I was going to ask him if he would give me the money to buy this transformative package, since I don’t have a job! I believe this package will not only allow me to be a transformative musician, but will transform my life!

Thanks for sharing about your beautiful family. Because you make this so fun and so personable I’m feeling like a part of the family! May the LORD continue His blessings on you and your family! This is truly sent from GOD!
COUNTING DOWN TO BLAST OFF!
Your grateful and excited sis in Christ!

It’s also very rare that you find someone so honest in their delivery and willing to give back. I have played by ear all my life and never been formally trained.

I don’t know if there is another forum on here to post this comment, but I just wanted to say that I love what Hear & Play is doing for us musicians. God has truly blessed me to be able to musically do what will glorify him – though it may NOT be the way other musicians get it done LOL!! Many of the local musicians are either extremely busy or simply selfish concerning what they’ve learned. For those of us who seek nuggets from their expertise, it’s like trying to pull tusks from a live wild boar LOL!! The “Ministry Musician” was truly a blessing to me. It’s great to know that some of the best musicians in the industry take the time to teach valuable info in your systems. Thanks so much to Hear & Play for your unselfish contributions to the body of Christ and beyond!!!

I thought I could play a little melody but soon realized the gaps. I have a very busy lifestyle as I am the sole provider in my family and practice time is challenging at times.
I find myself progressing all the time, and I’m amazed that at my age I am able to latch onto this fantastic presentation.
The Movie is really exciting and you guys make the professional actors look like amateurs. I am intrigued with this new and innovative movie and I guess I should not be surprised anymore, because you always exceed expectations.

Hey Jermaine,

That video was everything you said it would be and then some. I am going to have to look at it again cause you guys are crazy. I really enjoyed it a lot. Ya’ll should make more little short movies. I think it will help people to have more fun while they lern. It helps you to loosen up and realize you can still have fun and you don’t have to be a stiff neck. Like you said in the video for example, those holier than though folk. You know we all need a good laugh every now and then. I know I do. Both you and JP looked pretty gangsta, and you can jump too. I will be looking out for the mt pack and also continuing to read the guides because it is a lot to learn in there and also my 300pg study course. With all that plus the lessons I can practice in the GMTC I think I’m off to a pretty good start.It’s all good. Until next all of you be blessed.

P.S.
I also enjoy the stories about your family you tell in your audios and the encouragement that you give us when you are just talking about a lesson. The lessons are taught so down to earth and you feel kinda relaxed while taking them. I also enjoyed JP playing his drums on the song Jesus Be A Fence, he’s just has so much talent. He’s an awsome musician without the big head. I know you guys must have a lot of fun when ya’ll get together. Even though he did try to take the goods out of the case. hahaha It’s funny but that’s just the way it is with some folk. It was funny and a lesson learned. That let us know we need to wait and not jump the gun so to speak and mama use to say. Always look before you leap JP and you won’t have to get the smack down hahaha. I’m a big fan of action movies anyway. Ya’ll keep having fun.

Jermaine,

I know I just sent you the e-mail but I have to make this public–I am so INSPIRED by what you just did, that I can’t in conscience just take a copy of this course (even if I got in line and was one of the lucky 1000). It’s for people like Gayle, who are hungry and have tried and failed all their lives to be the musician they wanted to be. So I’ll give up my opportunity for this course to someone like her. Believe me this is not my NATURAL impulse! But it’s comin’ down from on high…and the “abundance mentality” tells me that there’s more than enough material to keep me busy until I just feel sure that it’s meant for me.

I think I am just going to get your book. I am kind of a book person and now that I know how you operate, I can start working through it with total confidence. I also plan to keep up with the Monthly Music Mentor,so please keep them coming and make them fabulous! I know you will. God bless!

Hi Jermaine, and thank you for the wonderful thought of making wonderful learning CDs and on top of it giving many free-bies. Iam from India, and its quite un-natural that most of the musicians are living in a GATED COMMUNITY that they do not teach others. But on the contrary, you are just wonderful in giving away all that you ahve learnt to public. iam sure God will use you more mightly and i pray that you will get even more creative thoughts.

Love you and God bless
Santosh, India.

The M.T. course is something amazing. I never ever have seen so much important information about how to become a Transformed Musician.

At this time I have read the 49 pages of M.T. and going over the 29 pages one. This is really great for any musician how want to reach the next level in music.

Even those I know most of the stuff on those reports there always something to learn. One important things for me in the reports are:

a) The M.T. equation as well: It become to clarify my mind and gives me organization in my practices. Now I now better where I have to emphasize more in my practices.

b) The Second report, for what I have read until now, tells me how to plan my practices so I can not loose any of the five elements of the equation (FF+CC+PP+SS+EE).

I recommend this course to any one that really wants to improve in music gospel playing. And not only in Gospel Music; This course works completely in any kind of music anyone can play.

Thanks Jermaine for all this grateful job you have done. GOD May Bless You along with your family all the time of your life. Because as you say: When we teach what we know to others the compensations back is not valuable. Simply no only you will master what you know but increase knowledge on what you know.

Jermaine,
You are gifted and I have read how your materials have helped so many people. I have ordered the 300 pg. course, Gospel Keys 102 and 202 (they are great tools, might I add) and I am still not playing. I just don’t get music. I am able to sit at the piano and find some parts of the melody to a song but I have difficulty finding the chord structure and pattern. I am now wondering whether playing piano (by ear and site reading-I’ve tried lessons-ugh!) is for me or not. I really don’t want to give up and I am willing to try the Musician Transformation if it is for beginners. Please tell what you recommend for me. Please help me Jermaine. I want to play badly.

You are truly a God-send, and it’s my fervent prayer you keep availing yourself to Him,,,and that your family continues to experience Him immeasurably!

Hi Jermaine,

I just wanted to let you know that from day one since I found out about your site, I eagerly in expectation pull up your post, and I read EVERYTHING!!!!! I know that no matter how advanced a person may be there is going to be something in your post for everybody. Although considered advanced by others I have received so many valuable (irreplaceable)gems as have I’m sure many others too have testified. You have truly become instrumental in the lives of thousands of musicians, instructing and giving knowledge by way of internet access. I truly wish that something like Hear and Play would have been around and available to me through my many years of struggle. Not struggling only to learn but also struggling not to give up–and Ohhh the abuses received on the road to becoming a Minister of Music. I believe your fervency and passion comes from this same road oftentimes filled with pain and persecution paved by musicians through the centuries, as well as from a sincere love for God and people, not willing that any should perish but that all would come to the knowledge of musical awareness that plundges ready made equipped worshipper’s (God’s foot soldiers) to the front line of the battle for the Glory of God. At all cost (offering instruction much of which Flashes accross the screen the words that people like to see FREE!!!) to help other musicians avoid the pitfalls of discouragement that pushes many artists to an early musicians graveyard with a headstone that reads ‘GAVE UP TOO SOON’. (LOL)

Now jermaine your most recent post and FREE DOWN LOADS are the most exciting and informative of all–The 44 and 29 page report are outstanding, the concept exceptional. A must have. Now the matter about your Mission Impossible video with you and Mr. J. Powell (I LOVED IT) my husband and I laughed through the whole mini video scene it was great! Keep it coming. Well I said all that to say this, Man of God Thank You, and may the Abundant (plentious, more than enough, rich) Blessings of God Overtake You and yours.

P.S. You have a beautiful family, I know they are so proud of you.

Hey Jermaine,

I’ve always liked your approach to teaching piano, very logical and easy to follow. This latest course has certainly raised the bar – it makes so much sense, flows well and builds a story – my playing has definately improved and even members of my local church have made comments to me about it, thanks to your courses. I’m a current customer and would be blessed with the opportunity to take my playing to the next level with the MT course.

Hey Jermaine and Jonathan,

Nice video!! You guys really had me cracking up.

One big question though: What do you guys plan to do when 50x the amount of people you expect converge on the site for 1000 free units on Tuesday and can’t get through due to server overload (like last time something of this magnitude was done?) How will the people who reserved a place secure their place?

Another question: The “free” you’re talking about is “try it for 30 days and if you like it, do nothing, we will charge your credit card and that’ll be it?” How much WILL the program go for?

Thanks guys,

Keep up the great work. I’ve been a fan and supporter since your first video J.

Dear Jermaine:

You’re a man of many talents. Preacher, musician, father, husband, teacher, and now actor. The video was great. You and Johnathan did a fantastic job. James Bond would be pleased. But more than that, you are a great human being. Look, there aren’t many people who would give away the merchandise you HAVE already given and will give to your students. I am a Christian of many years, and what you are doing, teaching us how to play the piano, in the way you’re doing it, and then giving us materials for free. Your blessings will increase 10, 100 fold, because God loves a cheerful giver. Thank you for being the kind of man you are. We’ve only met over the telephone, but I want you to know that I count you as, not just my piano teacher, but a friend. Keep up the tremendous work you’re doing.

Hi Jermaine,
Warm Christian greetings from the Caribbean Island-state known as St. Vincent and the Grenadines. You and your gifted team of musical experts have been given to the Kingdom on earth for such a time as this. Where I live, musicians in the church are an endangered species. To compound the problem, our church is not yet in the financial position to employ even a part-time musician.

You will agree with me that worship ministry in the 21st century is greatly enhanced by the quality of the church music. In some instances visitors do not return because of the absence of quality music. It is in this context that I give God thanks for you as you faithfully provide the opportunity by distance learning for churches like ours with a small financial base to still develop the musical talent among us. Once again accept our heartfelt thanks.

For the Kingdom,
Pastor Fitzroy Sam

and stacking chords!stacking chords is such an eye opener.really love you guys for what you are doing.and i always believed if teaching is done right then the teacher learns the most of all people involved.that’s just so true.

Jermaine, I loved your video! It was funny and nicely edited – I’m impressed! Did you use Apple’s iMovie? (I only ask ’cause I’m an Apple freak.) Anyway, I just got through reading your 29-page Missing Chapter and boy, I tell you. I mean, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in General Music and I’m currently teaching at high school level; so I know my scales backward and forward – majors, natural minors, harmonic minors, melodic minors – you name it. I’ve always detested practicing these scales because we’ve been trained to learn them chromatically. But your method of learning every thing via the circle of fifths??? Priceless. There’s nothing that sounds more beautiful to me than the circle of fifths, and to learn all scales and chords this way? I’m speechless. Not only does it help the ear to recognize what is commonly used in gospel (and jazz) music, it’s more fun too! There is so much more that i want to talk about here, but the space wouldn’t be able to hold it. And besides, I can imagine you would’ve already heard it all. Jermaine, I thank God for you and your knowledge and for your willingness to share all that you know. That is unique – you don’t meet too many people like that! Furthermore, when they’re teaching you all this classical stuff in college, they sure aren’t teaching you how to jam the music that you love most – GOSPEL! I’m dying to play that Hammond like those boys in Brooklyn, man! I pray everyday that God richly bless you, Jermaine, your wife and your two beautiful daughters! Thanks for everything! God bless.

The written materials you have provided to introduce the Musician Transformation have been very helpful. Will there be more written and illustrated helpers available when the course is released? I know this is Hear and Play but in the learning stages I find the keyboard illustrations confirm whether or not I’ve understood what has been taught. Example: when you explained how to form a dominant 7 chord and then spelled it out on the keyboard illustration it confirmed that I truly had understood it. Now as I play it…I can hear it …and I’m hearing the chord correctly….which will make identifying it easier too. It just gives me more confidence and accelerates the learning process. Many thanks for all you are doing for us. I’m slow but enthusiastic.

I’m very excited to get this system. Whether or not I’m one of the lucky 1,000 people, I’m still investing into this program. I’m one of those musicians that have some knowledge of music, but I’m torn between learning the sheet music and playing by ear. I’ve been playing by ear since I was 15 (I’m 26 now), but I’ve gotten frustrated with learning how to play “by the book” as of late. Hopefully (I pray), this will help. Once again, can’t wait for this to come out.

Jermaine: After playing for Apostolic/Pentecostal (nearly all “white ones” lol, the people, not the buildings!) for over 40 years now I have discovered that there is ALWAYS something new to learn or some new song to tackle that you have to really study in order to learn to play it. Often “we” are called upon in an instant to follow a preacher who just starts singing a song or chorus with no warning, or even worse is when, say a visiting evangelist’s wife is called upon to sing a special and starts out her “testimony” with: “God gave me this song last week and I know that the musicians don’t know it and have never heard it before but I feel like singing it here, tonight….”. Immediately we are thrown into trying to “pick out” the key of the song, the basic melody, the probable correct chord progressions all without sheet music on a song that we have never heard in our life! THIS is where the training in your Hear and Play series comes in VERY handy. Within a few notes I can generally know what key she is playing in and from those notes can quickly guess what chord to use. After figuring out a few chords I can then discern the key and so immediately begin thinking of the PROBABLY chord progressions that would match what she is doing. This is the kind of training that you quickly pick up from your series and this is the type of training that you can NOT get anywhere else in the WORLD!

Hello Minister J. Griggs,

I just want to say thank you and god bless you for starting this company. I’ve been a drummer in church all my life, but I always had a love for the piano/organ. After reading the section in the Musician Transformation Report about how musicians in the church act, its like you were preaching to me through those words!!! I was saying Yes Suh!, Waaal !, and Preach!!! after every paragraph! lol :) It is unfortunate that things are like that but, I’m glad you, being an accomplished musician pointed that mess out… I want to personally that you for taking the time to make these materials as they have helped me to make leaps and bounds in my playing. I’m far from where I want to be but with the help of the Lord through the Hear and Play ministry….. “Think-I’ll-Make-It! … Any-How!” (Hezekiah Walker) lol!!

There are so many lines of the reports you faithfully published that illustrate my gospel piano experience. I bought many of your DVDs that help take off. I play in a French Church the little I could understand and mastered from studying at your school. I learned the circle of fifth just for learning the theory, but tonight, after watching and practicing along with the online videos you posted, I feel empowered to play better at tomorrow morning service, by the grace of God. I have a mandatory choir rehearsal on Tuesdays but I will do the best I can to be online. I don’t want to miss this blessings; they are mine among millions.
