    Thanks to Miriam Tierno for making this “Number System” chart. She wanted me to pass this on to other members.

    If you’re not familiar with the importance of the number system, see this report.

    Number System

    You can use the number system to:

  • Learn scales
  • Learn chords
  • Learn patterns & progressions
  • Learn songs
  • Transpose songs to other keys
  • and more…
  • number system and circle of fifths chart

    Hi, I'm Jermaine Griggs, founder of this site. We teach people how to express themselves through the language of music. Just as you talk and listen freely, music can be enjoyed and played in the same way... if you know the rules of the "language!" I started this site at 17 years old in August 2000 and more than a decade later, we've helped literally millions of musicians along the way. Enjoy!

    Attention: To learn more about this, I recommend our 500+ page course: The "Official Guide To Piano Playing." Click here for more information.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
    will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!

    Before panicking and setting up a few expensive doctor appointments,
    realize that the answer may be as clear as day. Channeling the needs of your business is a very critical point
    to consider when hiring the services of a professional.
