• Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

    in Interviews


    I just want to take this time to wish you a very Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! Click here for a personal greeting.

    Take this time to spend with those closest to you. And remember… we give gifts, understanding that the greatest gift was given to us by our Savior. I pray that your holidays are blessed.

    Thanks for your support. We really appreciate you as a student. You make this site possible.

    I wish you a prosperous and successful new year!

    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.

    Jermaine, you are getting better and better! I am proud of you! Doing this video with Sinbad is excellent. It is very funny and warm plus a portion of your value proposition was communicated in the video as well. Sinbad is funny no matter what setting he is in!

    Merry Christmas Jermaine!

    You are making it possible for many of us to do what we could only dream about. What more could we ask for this holiday season? Not only you are turning out musicians for the LORD, but also ministers. Your gift is definitely being given to the bankers to be given back to God multiplied (Matthew 25:27). Grace and Peace!

    Hey Jermaine,

    Thanks for all you do for God and for the music ministry. It’s really a great inspiration for me especially being in the military, it is really hard to do military things and get music lessons at the same time. But Hear and Play has been a tremendous blessing.

    God Bless, Merry Christmas and Happy New Years
