    I was right! I knew you were going to eventually teach songs. This is going to be one of the best things you’ve done, for some reason I can feel it. The fact the your giving away the dvd as the stepping stone into the club is going to have a lot of people interested. you guys are doing awesome.

    I have a question??? Will that virtual keyboard you used on the last video you did be in the online training? I have many of your dvds and I never seen you guys use that. So if you’re adding to that the training, thats another benefit that im sure many pepole will like, including myself. either way, i’m excited to have someone breaking down this stuff.

    God bless

    now that’s what i’m talking about! I’m actually one of those that remember you talking about gospelkeys 102 several years ago. I think it must have been mentioned on one of the courses and I called and called about it but no one could never give me a date or timeframe on when it would be out. I guess my waiting wasn’t in vain seeing that you are giving it away for free. I promise i won’t be one of those ones that jip you. I know this is a business and you can’t survive (let alone in these times) giving away dvds but what you are doing shows that you really think things through. Stay humble and see God do the miraculous.

    I always wondered why you guys didn’t start teaching songs and the patterns that connect them. if its like your lost without you video, then this is going to be great for my playing. I just hope the monthly price isn’t too much like regular lessons.

    @Don Smith jr: Thanks for your comments! Yes, the virtual keyboard will be included in every online training tutorial. Not only that but each lesson comes with a “take 1” (15-20 mins on the basic elements of the song), “take 2” (another 15-25 minutes on “extra” and fancy stuff you can apply to the song) and what we call a “theory talk,” (kind of like the 33-minute video where we break down even more of what’s going on under the hood). You’ll also get the midi files for the entire lesson so that you can open it in any midi program of your choice (or you can use our Hear and Play Midi Song Learner software I’ll be including for free to see all the notes slowed down and in all 12 keys). So there’s a lot more I withheld from this video because I already felt like I was giving too much information. But I’ll give the rest of it as we get closer. Great question!

    How many songs are taught per month and if we can’t get to the songs, can we save them until future months? I guess what I’m trying to say is that is there a time frame or do we get access to everything?

    Reply

    9 Jermaine

    @Stan: Thanks!

    @Martha: Sorry for making you wait so long for gospelkeys 102 :-)

    @Pete: Ok, I will charge ONLY you for the dvd :-)

    @Penny: We haven’t solidified the number of songs per month but it will be somewhere between 5 and 7 or so. Each song will have three versions as I mentioned above to someone else. You’ll get “take 1” which is the foundation you need to play the song (and might I add that after “take 1,” you will be playing the song… no questions about it). It’s just that “take 2” gets even further teaching you fancier voicings and how to play with 2 hands (if you have a bass player) and how to add these little nuances that can really enhance your style. Then there’s the theory talk and underlying system of the song that’s explored. So all in all, if we do 5 songs per month, then that’s a total of 15 videos (each video is at least 15-20 minutes and some get as high as 28 mins). If we do 7 songs, that’s 21. I will also present a survey to see how many songs everyone can handle. I don’t want it to be overwhelming but I don’t want it to be too less either.

    And to answer your other question… your songs accumulate so if you don’t get to all of them in month #1, they will still be accessible for future months (unless you cancel). Also, it’s important to understand that if you hold out and don’t join until like next year, you will not get access to previous songs we’ve taught. So it’s like you miss out. you only get the last 5-7 songs we’ve covered WHEN YOU JOIN. So if we’ve covered 25 songs by mid next year and someone decides to join, they won’t get the benefit of those past issues (…well, eventually they will but they have to stay a member for x months before we open up the “ARCHIVE VAULT” which is all explained when you join).

Is there a way to buy the Gosplekeys 102 by itself and not do the training? Would gladly pay the price you talked about in the video in fact.

    @Keith @Jade: Thanks!!!!!!

    @peter Shinksy: I totally see where you’re coming from. Unfortunately, right now, GospelKeys 102 is my open “bribe” for the real exciting part of the project… Gospel Music training center. In fact, it’s designed to be the prerequisite. One studies it and understands “all 12 keys” and the “7 strategies to spice up songs” … and then the club is continuous training to apply the techniques learned in the dvd (and other dvds) to real-life songs. It’s all connected. Perhaps in the future, it can be offered by itself but right now, it’s a group thing. But, although I don’t encourage this, one can get the dvd and still have the freedom to cancel the monthly training at any time. there’s no obligation or anything like that at all.

    Thanks and great question.

    Wow! This is what I have been waiting for, God is truly using you, believe that, I am definitely in. Just one question, do you think you can go “old school” on some of those lessons. I love the contemporary sounding chords, but I really need some help with the stuff like Chicago Mass and Hezekiah Walker when they were “back in the day”. You know the foundation of Gospel Music. However, I know whatever God leads you to do is going to be off THE HOOK!!! Bless you

    In fact, I’m like you in that I like old school stuff. So rest assured that there will be a good mix of everything with emphasis on some of the stuff I personally grew up on (and even older than me). Patterns from James Cleveland, Timothy Wright, Hezekiah Walker, Kirk.

    hello Jermaine,

    I would have never guessed this, but what an excellent idea. I really have to tell you that I took music lessons with a very talented musician for several years and felt like I was getting no where, but for the longest time I wanted to be a gospel musician. Well, I left my music studies for several years, and one day, while poking around on the internet, I ran across a you tube video of yours. Several weeks later, I ordered a Korg keyboard and just about all of your gospel keys courses. I can honestly say I have learned more in past couple of months studying your materials than when I was taking lessons for a few years. I do thank God for all of your work and it has truly been a blessing to run into you..I also look forward to joining the online music center when it opens.

    Cedric..

    I just finished the first disk of the Gospel Keys 202.
    In your discussion of chords that go with the first tone (in the key of D flat) you recommend a Quartal chord comprised of B flat, E flat & A flat. I like the sound of it, but I’m trying to get my mind around it’s relationship to D flat. For example a D flat maj7 or (I7) follows certain well known rules. With the Quartal chord, why those particular notes, and more importantly – especially when I start applying all of the chords to the other keys, how should I think of the chord that ties it to the key I’m in (in this case D flat)…..a chord that is three tones (quarter tones apart) that start on the 6th tone??? or is there a better way to think of it & remember it.

    thanks – looking forward to starting the next lesson.

    Hello Jermaine! Well i must say you’re doing a great job here. Thanks for the opportunity to hear and play music. I am a beginner and i must let you know that it’s a little hard for me to catch up with the speed at which you taught the 33min class.It’s not that you’re fast but it’s just me trying to figure-out what i’m to do. With the club thing, will there be a beginners class or some kind of class that can help a student like me? Plus, with the 9am pacific Wednesday launching, i certainly will miss out on that because i’ll be at work. Is there a way the CDs can be ordered? i mean CDs that will help beginners like me?

    All the same, i commend your effort.

My biggest thing is i want to be able to play a song in church. This new thing gives me hope. I loved the way you taught the lost w/o you song it was simple and quick. For that I am thankful. Wednesday can’t get here fast enough. Thank you for letting God use you. You are a Blessing!!!

    Hey guys,

    Just got off the radio show so let me catch up with the questions…

    @Cedric and @Randy: Thanks for your kind words guys!

    @BillK: Concerning your question about quartal chords. You’re right, they are from a different “family.” Most chords are tertian. In other words, they’re built off THIRDS. Most of all the chords you know fall into that category. But not quartal chords. They are in a family of their own (comprised of fourth intervals rather than third intervals). So first of all, MASTER THE CIRCLE OF FIFTHS. And because it’s a circle, points on it overlap. So notice that C+F+Bb is not that different than F+Bb+Eb. They overlap so that should make it easier. Once you understand all the “FOURTH” relationships, you just think of this chord as a quartal chord based on the 6th tone of the scale.

    Truth be told, that’s not the only one that works. You can play a quartal chord on the 2nd tone of the scale, 3rd tone of the scale, 6th tone (just like we did in Gospelkeys 202), and the 7th tone of the scale — and each of these will give you a different sound.

    The club will break all of this down in what I call the “THEORY TALK” part of the lesson (if a song, for example, utilizes a quartal chord, that is).

    Reply

    41 Jermaine

    @Nomusa: Hmmm, we’re not doing preorders because of the nature of the offer and we want to give everyone a head start. But, I can promise you that it will only take 2 mins to join. You choose your username/password, then you proceed to pay for shipping for the free course and bam, you’re done! You can then go back and log in to the training when you get home and the free course will be on its way. I’m actually going to be doing a video update and thanking people in advance for shifting around schedules to take advantage. I’ll try to do something special just for people who sign up within a certain time frame as well.

    @Yinka: Yes, I will have training for the very beginners. And they will be even slower than “Lost without you.” (even though that one was pretty slow). But also… don’t confuse “fast” and “slow” with how fast you’re grasping it. I think those are two different things. If you just don’t understand what I’m talking about, then, yes, it would help for it to be slower. But if you clearly understand what I’ve taught and it’s just a matter of your fingers getting comfortable and trained to play it, then that is my goal. I want to make sure things are clear when they leave my mouth so that even if it’s hard to play those 4 chords from the song, you still understand what it takes to achieve the end result. That will be the goal of the online training and because it will be a smaller group (and we’ll have feedback/suggestion boxes), we’ll be able to gauge how fast or slow future lessons need to be. Appreciate the feedback!

    @Mark: Rest assured that only Jon and I will be doing the training. That’s it! And I will be doing every single “theory talk” analysis section.

    @Michael Taylor & @Jerry: Thanks guys for your comments! Encouraging!

    @Oskie: Thanks! I’ve even been thinking about doing a special class for training members going through each chapter of the course. We’ll see when and if this unravels by the feedback of the training club members.

    Congratulations Jermaine for creating the Gospel Music Training Center. I really admire you for the diversified ways that you are using to teach Gospel Music and for all the facilities that you are always giving to your students. I would like to be part of your Gospel Music Training Center, but I can not participate because my leisure time is very limited. However, I want to support your project by ordering the Gospel Keys 102 and pay for it. I need it because I already have the Gospel Keys 101, 202 and 300. Please, e-mail me a form to fill it out and pay for the DVD course. God bless you Jermaine.

    I really want to do this course so I truly hope it is affordable. My free time is somewhat limited but I have to find the time somehow because this is an opportunity I just cannot pass up. I do have one question, lets say I sign up for 6 months of classes and then I have to cancel. Do I have my 6 months of lessons that I can refer to at anytime or do I lose access as soon as I cancel?

    Hey Jermaine,

    I’m currently working my way through GK202 and loving it. I’ve played piano for over 30 years, studied classical at the undergraduate & graduate level but I’ve never been able to wrap my head around a method that didn’t just seem like math. I’m so digging the DVD. You can’t believe how many times I rewind just 10 seconds totally glued to something you played.

    Ready to say goodbye to Beethoven and move into the next phase of my musical journey. This last week has been the most fun ‘piano’ week of my life. Can’t wait for the training to be released.

    Thanks Jermaine! You are a blessing and its awesome to see how God is rewarding you and everyone at Hear & Play. Gifts are meant to be shared and blessing returns 100 fold when we humbly commit to sharing it with others!! You Guys Rock!

    I love the fact that you made this DVD. I’m very excited to receive it. However I must admit, I’m not sure if the gospel training center is the right place for me to learn songs simply because I’m the keyboard player at my HISPANIC church. I don’t need to learn the songs you’ll teach because 95% of the music we sing is in Spanish. Please understand I want the DVD to learn better chords and to progress in my piano playing but I’m still uncertain if I’m going to join the club. I don’t want you to think I’m being cheap, I just felt I’d be honest with you.

    God bless and continue the GREAT work,

    Jeremiah

    Wow! I have a lot of catch up to do but I promise to answer each comment…

    @Alberto: Thanks for comments! While I’d love to charge for GK102, it’s sort of complicated to isolate it out, the way we have it set up. You’ll notice on Wednesday that you’ll be making a username and password for the club… THEN all the members who join automatically get the dvd sent to them (rather than the opposite).

    So you have two options:

    1) You can get the gk102, pay the $6 shipping, then cancel before $30 days (this is not the option I encourage but it’s there).

    2) You can get the gk102, pay the $6 shipping, and really give the online club a try (maybe your preconceived notions about time and training will be answered once you see the format and how easy it is to learn a song) — then cancel *after* month 1. You would have ended up paying one month’s training, which still wouldn’t equal what I’d charge for 102, had it been buyable. This is the option I’d hope you take. But as I mentioned, you’re not forced to stay in anything so it’s totally up to you.

    ———-

    @Ruben (Pastor B), @Hp: Thanks for your encouraging comments!

    @Camesia: Thanks for your comments. Yes, I believe everyone will agree that the training will be worth its weight in gold for what we’ll charge. As for the second part of your question, if you leave the training center after x months (whether 3 or 6 or a year), you do lose access (because there’s always new training being added weekly). However, as long as you’ve been a member for 3 months, we open up many many many benefits like downloading the videos in multiple formats (mp4 video, m4v for ipods/portable players, mp3 for audio only, sheet music)… even an archived area of lessons we call the “vault.” (even more songs and lessons). Other formats like midi and virtual keyboard will be available from day one. So it is possible to download and archive your past material, even if you leave the club. Thanks Camesia… one of the best questions yet.

    Hey Jermaine!! I’m excited about the monthly training and can’t wait to get started!!! I have just one question will how will we be billed for the services monthly/quarterly/yearly or can you choose?

    @Rickey @Cameron @Larry @Anita: Thank you all so much!

    —–

    @Jay: Understood. Play it by ear. Of course, you can try it out and make up your decision even before 30 days. That is the benefit of a 30 day trial so as long as you visit our help desk at hearandplaysupport.com and get your ticket id after submitting the cancellation, thats all you have to do (or call us of course and its immediate). The reason I told people to pass up on the free dvd was to limit the ones who have absolutely no interest in the training (and they know this already). I want the two to be considered a pair rather than separates.

    —–

    @MS: Lol, why you feel left out? Don’t worry, I’m for the beginner. If anyone could summarize my training versus other courses we have from other instructors, hands down, they would call me the “beginner’s instructor” so don’t worry about that. Let me ask you MS… how was your experience with the quick 33 min training because the online training will be similar and maybe even slowed down more (although there’s a sensitive balance between too fast and too slow to cater to different folks). But if you go through the dvd, at least you’ll have the foundation and strategies down so when you’re in the club, you can proceed faster.

    ——

    @Matthew: Thanks for taking the time to share your story! That means a lot, especially coming from someone who studied classically. Sometimes the “different worlds” don’t respect each other but I’m finding more and more people crossing over the divide. Welcome and thanks again!

    @Rasjid: No website info on Gospelkeys 102 yet. My 4-minute explanation of it in this video is pretty much the whole idea but I will have bullet points for it soon.

    @Tracy/Tdub: Yes ma’am (missed you on the radio show last night). The online training will be in flash so if you can view youtube and all those other video services, then you won’t have a problem. The dvd of course is compatible everywhere. so yes, because we’re using an online platform, everyone has equal access whether you’re on PC or mac.

    Bless You and Your Family Rev. This is a Tremendous thing, and I Praise “GOD” for it. One of the main nutrients needed for Growth in any area of this Life is Mentoring, which even goes beyond teaching. For individuals such as yourself and Jamal, JJ, to show the desire to impart what The “LORD” has Shared with You (of course there is a financial reaping for You Gentlemen) It shows You have Real Compassion for Soul’s. We need not count the Multitude of so called musician’s in the buildings called churches that would not share, or claimed not to have enough time to share with the many that are hungering for this knowledge.

    Rev. we look forward to the Club and all the rest.

    Also when I spoke to Brian one time he said there was going to be a Bass Guitar DVD series? Has that been shelved, or is it in the works. And lastly is it possible to get only certain ones of the Voice DVD series? Thank You Sir.

    Hey Jermaine

    While I think giving away the Free DVD is very commendable, I think it would be more logical to give the Free DVD away ONLY to people who subscribe to the course! That way you target only those who are genuinely interested in the course, & not the freeloaders who just want something for nothing.

    Reply

    64 Jermaine

    @Min Nathan McAllister: Appreciate the words! I’ve seen your name for several years so thanks for the support as well. You are absolutely right about mentorship. I’ve just recently involved myself in community and public service in the city and the first thing I sought out was a mentor because that’s the preferred way to get from point A to point B. So you’re spot on with that one.

    No the bass dvd hasn’t been shelved. With the club, what some people don’t know is that there is going to be more than personal trainings. When we come out with new dvds, to encourage membership in the club we may not even charge for them. And for people already in the club, they’ll get the downloadable version for free (this may even be the idea for Jason White’s second course). But this is just an idea… I still have the crystallize the concept and how it’s going to work exactly. But with vocals, you can’t get the physical cds separate but there may be in an option in the club to download up to 2 of the 10 cds for free… still working on the logistics of doing these sorts of things. I want people in the club to feel like it is the best value they’ve ever received and some of these little things I have planned will certainly help. If you join, send me a feedback/suggestion message in there with the details of which discs, and I will see what can be done.

    Reply

    65 Jermaine

    @Cmajor9; That’s exactly what I’m doing. You still have to join the club. In fact, the first thing it asks you for upon joining is the username and password you want to use. The dvd is automatically shipped once you have completed the training registration. However, I wanted to discourage people from signing up from the club, then getting the dvd in a few days and immediately e-mailing or phoning us to cancel. Or heck, I’ve heard of horror stories of people doing it RIGHT after they order. I just want to discourage those who will wait for a tracking number to know the “free course” is out in the mail, then they cancel the monthly thing having never given it a try. Is that what you meant Cmajor9?

    (Disclosure: A free dvd is a free dvd. Whether you want the monthly training or not, I’m obligated to honor ANYONE who wants the free dvd, even if they cancel so I’m not REQUIRING you to do anything. Just from a “fairness” perspective because there’s plenty of people who see the value in the club even without the free dvd — that’s why I discouraged those who are seeking just the freebie. But for those who see the value of monthly coaching and mentorship… you are the ones who should have the dvd and not have to worry about us running out or waiting for future shipment).

    Hi Jermaine,

    I’m over in the Uk. I have full intentions of joining on the date you’ve mentioned. What if you sell out of the free dvds. Does that mean people will be able to join the training but not get the dvds or how does that work? I’ve just been sitting back and seeing all the interest and i’m saying to myself that you will definitely sell out. I want to make sure that my timing is rihgt.

    God bless you for your service,

    70 Jermaine

    @Kruter: This is something I’ve really been pondering, especially since all the comments and direct e-mail replies we’ve received since yesterday. In fact, when I ordered my first batch for this course, I honestly didn’t have intentions of the free part. That idea came weeks after. Many people have told me (including Lisa and some of my other buddies) that they think the first batch won’t be enough considering the free offer. I have put in another order that but that will take at least 4-5 weeks from start to finish so I’m not sure exactly how that will work out. So I guess the quick answer is, no, if you miss the first batch, that won’t be all she wrote. However, there may be a 4 week waiting period for the second batch to come in. Let me talk to some folks and I will probably do an update soon on the final details and what to expect.

    @Jerry and @Selene: Thanks for your comments! (Jerry, I hope all has been well since hurricane Ike)

    @Rasjid: The link will be announced and I’ll have the full details all up on there even before wednesday so you’ll know all the details (even more than I talked about in the video) and the price, which is still being determined. I’m trying to make it something that is fair.

    Fair in that it pays for the video hosting costs and infrastructure (ask youtube about that… it cost millions per month just to host all the video data which takes 100x more space than basic text and photos). Then on your end, I’m comparing to other alternatives you have and trying to beat those alternatives by 10x (that’s price, “takeaway” value, content, and everything). I want to make it something that speaks for itself… especially for someone who’s been looking for this type of continuous training. Stay tuned.

    Jermaine, please consider charging monthly for the course instead of every three months or every six months; or at least offer options. It is more affordable for me to pay on a monthly basis. I hope to avoid having to pay a high lump sum all at once either before or after an extended period of time.

    @DJ: Thanks

    @Michael Taylor: Rest assured that monthly will ****DEFINITELY*** be the main option rather than forcing quarterly or yearly subscriptions. In fact, we may not even have those other options because it complicates things on our end a lot. So you’re good to go.

    @Trumusic1soul: Thanks bro! Greating chatting with you on the radio show last night!

    @Ronaldo Hepburn: Will be glad to have ya! Yes, when you join, you pay $6 for shipping. You access the gospel music training center immediately while your free course gets shipped by the fulfillment house and should arrive in 3-4 days. All the while you’re already in the club learning from the training videos. The fee for the club is paid monthly exactly 30 days from when you first join. You can cancel at any time, including before the 30 day mark and you won’t be charged. If you remain in the club, of course, you’ll be charged. I’m working on a video explaining all the details. It should be out by friday! :-)

    Im sold Jermaine. As an ear player that doesnt have a lot of free time to practice, I started feeling stagnant in our church services, not growing. When I started buying your courses it ignited me into a recommitment of really excercising my gift that God would be glorified with it and through it. It sparked a new understanding of knowing not just how to play a certain progression but what im playing, which has really expanded my knowledge base not just for myself but that I can show some of the other aspiring young musicians in our congregation some of the concepts.

    My opinion is that while others major in the gift of playing not everyone has the gift of teaching.

    I personally believe its an annointing or gift partially prophetic, (being able to see things differently), and teaching, (having the ability to impart and bring to words things that are not so easily seen).

    I see a mixture of these two gifts that God has bestowed on you…

    I was wondering though, is there any plan to sell courses on line (downloadable)?

    Also what is the possiblilty of having the free course available for download?

    This would infinitely multiply the potential viewers….

    God Bless

    I am looking forward to the very important dvd & the training center. The cost will be highly relevant in my case. I am a retired disabled vet (USMC-Viet Nam) so funds only go so far. Especially in todays financial climate. Just as you were candid in your video, I thought it only fair to do likewise.

    Hello Bro. Jermaine.

    Iam feeling your training program it will be really good for me.Since the fact that iam paying 20$ an half hr.to learn songs also the gas that i spen to get to my lesson.So this will be well worth it i can learn in mt own home. Also i can download and rewind when i need to. Cant get that from a live insrtu.Plus i always enjoyed your teaching i have gospelkeys 300 and 500.They help me to go from beg.to interm.fast now iam playing whole church services. So count me in may GOD bless you.

    This will be perfect for me too. I’m paying $40 per half hour for lessons here in my small town and while they are good to keep me busy, I feel like I’m not getting where I want to be fast enough. I can already see the value in this monthly training, especially if its just half as effective as that video lesson you posted above. Hopefully I’m in the front of the line.

    Oh, is there a possibility for those who are on the black list not to get a DVD? If so, they wont be able to join the club until the second launch in about 2 – 3 months?

    @Carolyn: Just bookmark this page and/or http://www.gospelmusictraining.com and stay tuned for any updates and announcements. It’s not open quite yet but come release day, it will be. I’m even going to update http://www.gospelmusictraining.com and it will have a full informational website with all the details very soon. For now, if you haven’t watched all 4 videos leading up to this point, that would be a good idea. Until then, just keep Wednesday in mind (jot in your calendar) as things look like they’ll be hectic. Thanks for your question and looking forward to seeing you in the training club! :-)

    @Godstime ilo: Video lessons will be updated weekly. There will also be a nice pot of lessons at launch prior to the 1-2 lessons per week that will be added.

    @Trumusicsoul: I totally missed your question up there. Sorry bro! The payment option for release date will be credit card. The max you’ll be charged is about $6-7 if you’re in the USA and that’s for shipping. If you’re outside of the USA (I know you’re in Earle, AR Trumusic1soul but for others reading), I’m helping to pay the shipping/fulfillment cost to keep your shipping down to $11-$12 (because I think international students will have the greatest benefit from online and direct training because you don’t have to worry about shipping and delivery times. As soon as the training songs are uploaded, you get direct access

    @Enoch: Yes, your chord confidence will improve once you start seeing how they work in real songs and their similarities across multiple song patterns.

    @Uncledub: Secular songs… in the beginning, I don’t think so. However, “Lost without you” is secular. If we can make arrangements and the song really explains a musical pattern/process that I think everyone needs to know, then I don’t think folks will mind. But I’ll really have to survey all the students and get the general feedback and we will know for sure

    @Lenny: You mention “christmas…” — we’ll even have 1 or 2 of those in the line up. Perfect timing! :-)

    @Justin: Thanks for awesome words!

    @Chiojoke: Contact me at jermaine (at) hearandplay (dot) com. There are a few options for order in Nigeria.

    @Joe Washington and Laketa! My radio show crew! Good to have you all!

    @Camesia: More concurrently. For some, the first part may very well be refresher if you play across multiple keys. Second part (7 strategies) will probably be fairly new in that way it is systematized (not to say you’re not already doing these either). But the dvd will serve to make sure everyone knows at least those things as a basis. You can certainly get into the training. For example, in the 33-minute lesson, there were many things I could have stopped and expounded on but I had to keep all the many people watching in mind. So it’s great if I can just know at least that everyone knows X,Y, and Z. But yes! Dive in right away! I encourage you to! :-)

    @Sylburn: Thanks so much for your insight. I appreciate that! As for your question about digital downloads, many of our products are being converted as we speak so this digital download idea will be a reality in a very short time. As for making the free bonus online, it’s hard for me to do that with how the payment system is set up. Or let me rephrase, I can easily do that but the payment system sees the training and the dvd as ONE product. They are one so having to make options that send certain people the dvd and not others is a complication I can’t take on right now — I’m already losing sleep over here Sylburn :-)!!!!!! At any rate, the digital downloads (your first question) will certainly be a reality soon.

    By the time I got my name on the back door list this morning (11/14/08) about 8:15 AM, the list was already up to 1, 500 plus. Even if we am unable to get the DVD when the first 500 are given out, could you still consider letting us be a member of the club by paying the monthly fee. I have purchased some of you other DVDs in the past like the Gospel Keys 200 series. Even if you mention some of the concepts in the Gospel Keys 102 series in the course that I have yet to come across, I still believe that I can keep up until the free dvd is available.

    I think this is awesome and I will be subscribing to the monthly lessons. However, why dont you upload the 102 video so that users can stream it? That way you won’t run out of dvds. It will also save your company on the material costs of the dvd and packaging. Just my two cents.

    Jermaine, I have been a member since 2005 and purchased many of your programs starting with the 300 page course, Christmas KEYS 1.0, Jazz 101, Jazz 201,
    Hear & Play 102, and I am looking forward to this new training program. I have told many people that I admire you for the ingenuity you have shown in starting this company, and everything associated with it. God has really blessed you, J.
    I hope I am in time for the goodies and really looking forward to learning a little more.

    I have a very basic question that I have never found an answer for, soooooo at the risk of embarrassing my self, I will ask you, will you ever teach a lesson on how to play base note,chord,(left hand), and melody and chords with your right hand. It must be so basic that no one ever discusses the timing. I played the Organ when I was younger and my left hand just played chords. I watch piano players all the time at church etc.and I see (LH)C Bass….C chord, C Bass….C Chord, G Bass……G Chord G Bass G Chord, but when I try to do that I Keep wishing I could be playing Organ. As a result, I have become a professional student teaching myself music theory and saying maybe if I learn all of this stuff, someday I will be able to play something.

    So, my friend………….Please help me learn to play right.

    Regards and good luck with this new project.

I purchased a keyboard a couple of years ago and I really want to learn how to play it so I can move up to playing the organ. It can be very discouraging at times when I try to teach myself and it just doesn’t work out. So you can just imagine how excited I am about the 2-hour $49 dvd course for free.

I couldn’t keep up with the new style nor could I hear how these awesome chord were played.

    @Brenda! You better believe it! Old time hymns and old school styles will definitely be a part. We’re not only going to focus on contemporary. In fact, I have broken them into four categories and they will all be represented:

    Traditional: These are hymns, old school congregational songs, “church shuffles” (as Jason white calls them), and things like that.

    Modern: These are your contemporary songs. From worship to uptempo choir songs.

    Classic: I’m calling anything that is evergreen in the sense that it can be 15 years old but people still sing them like they’re new. These are the “classics” (I realize this word means different things to different people but these are the songs that tend to never get “old”).

    Urban: These will have the R&B/jazz/contemporary feel. A lot of the later styles sound like this (especially from artists like Tye Tribbett).

    @Ronaldo: Thanks for your questions.

    #1 – The content in the club will be 95% songs and song patterns. The dvd will be more instructional and cover fundamentals and strategies that help you with the song pattern training.

    #2 – Lessons will be posted weekly. When you first join, you will get access to existing lessons that are already there. There will be 5-7 songs already in the club with 3 lessons per song (We call the first video lessons “take 1” — this is the basics video. Once you’re done here, you’ll be able to play the song and you’ll understand the patterns employed in the song. Then “take 2” is the “expanded” version where it teaches you extra little things to do in the song and other approaches. Some students that are not ready for “take 2” can choose to only focus on “take 1” as you will sound awesome even with the first lesson. Then the last lesson called “theory talk” will basically break down the entire song pattern from the perspective of my “learning charts” (which you saw some of them in the 33-min tutorial).

    #3 – Lol, black list? :-) I wouldn’t call it that but yes, those folks will pretty much miss out until a few months. It’s very complicated for me to break up the activities. When you join, it’s set to send you dvd via mail asap. It’s not set to delay 2-3 months and so that part will be very cumbersome and we’re not ready to distract our core activities of making this membership the #1 coaching online. So rather than deal with that, we won’t offer membership at all if we can’t ship a dvd. These two items are one. I know it seems counter-intuitive to stop someone from possibly joining monthly (you’d think from a business perspective, I shouldn’t mind having as many members as possible) but it’s worth it not to complicate things.

    @Roy Wyatt: Are you referring to this left-hand “bass-chord” technique for older gospel songs are you talking about jazz styles? If you’re talking about gospel, we can certainly put it in our suggestion box for a future style to cover, for sure. Please clarify. If you have an example on youtube, please post that too.

    Jermaine – I love your stuff and have started writing gospel songs – I wrote one called ‘smile’ about being positive (as a result of my mum being diagnosed with cancer back in july) – can see it performed on youtube ‘NSG SMILE’ if you get a chance. I have most of your collection of dvds but not enough time in the day to watch them all . I am a music teacher in the UK and part of my A level teaching is arranging and colouring chords – have you got a dvd section that takes a simple chord pattern and then explains how to make it more complicated / decorate it as this would be a valuable resource for my teaching. (similar to the ones in your book – amazing grace etc but goes a step further? ie instead of using C F G use C9 Dm7 G/f etc….

    Hi Jermaine,

    I love that you are offering this. I’ve mastered the praise and Worship DVD and have bought some of your other products. My issue was finding time to hone the new skills that I have learned and taking it to another level. I am now at a place in my life where I can make the time and I am looking forward to pressing on and adding new things to my musical vocabulary. Thanks for all the valuable information that you provide. You truely are a blessing.

    Jermaine, you hit it on the head when you mentioned the left-hand “bass-chord” technique for older gospel songs. Rock Of Ages, The Old Rugged Cross, Just A Closer Walk With Thee, Mansion Over The Hilltop, Etc.

    I am 74 years young and have learned a great deal of theory and now I want to start off relativly slow and work my way up. I sing Bass in our regular Church Choir, and also Our Senior Choir that go out to retirement homes every Wednesday AM to try to cheer up the older saints. They really like the oldies but goodies, Southern style ala Bill Gaither, et al.

    I’ll keep looking until you come up with something.

    In Hymn,

    @Roy: Even though we haven’t started the “suggestion box” (you’ll see it when you log in), I have put yours in front! We will certainly include some of the oldies but since reading your comments, we will specifically try to cover the left hand “bass-chord” style. It may not be in the initial videos upon launch date but it will make its way into the weekly releases shortly. How’s that? You’ll have just as much communication as this with us so (if not more) so we will be able to see how you’re doing with them, once released. Take care Mr. Wyatt!

    Do you have a phone # that people can call in if they have no access to a comuter to sign up for the new DVD…As I said before I will be on a bus at that exact time and I don’t have a laptop…When I get to where I’m going there may be a computer for me to use but it will be 3pm by that time and you will probably be sold out…

    Hey Jermaine,

    Just wanted to know what provisions will be made for those of us without credit cards. If we have to sign up online using our credit card that is a problem for us. I’m gonna call the office in a couple days to find out about that. Thank You SOOOO MUCH and God Bless You!

    Reply

    234 Jermaine

    @Brandon,

    While it isn’t written in stone, I think credit card will be the only viable option.

    #1: By the time your offline payment gets in (check, money order) several days later, it may be too late.

    #2: For the monthly training, it is very complicated to handle offline payments. In fact, the system is set up to automatically bill.

    What I would recommend Brandon if you are really interested in the program is to visit the nearest convenient store or bank and ask for a prepaid card. Simply fill it up with enough for the shipping ($6-$7… so put $10 on there to be safe or whatever the minimum) and use that. Prior to 30 days later, you can also go refill the card. Also, if you join paypal.com, they give you “virtual credit card” numbers that actually are only created for that use (they aren’t permanent card numbers… they connect to your paypal account and paypal issues them when you need to pay someone). So there are many options around it. I do apologize if this is an inconvenience but I just don’t want you to be disappointed come release day.

    Also, if you have a walmart nearby, you can get a prepaid card there:

    God Bless you and your family Bro. Jermaine. I want to be part of the Gospel 102 membership but my keyboard playing is limited. My main instrument is guitar so is possible to still be a part of the program while I’m developing my keyboard skills using my guitar. I still have to know chord progressions and proper chord vocings, only this would be approaching the training from a keyboard foundation not guitar foundation. Have a blessed evening. jc

I am 50 yrs old, my husband 55, my daughter 29, other daughter 20, son 28, and our other son Evan’s birthday is tomorrow the 17th he will be 25. We all play instruments. My husband and I travel twice a month to Liberty ville, Ill for music ministry. I a so glad that God has placed you in a position of teaching, i feel that you were sent just at the right time in our lives. I signed up for you backdoor list and I will be encouraging others also.

    May God continue to bless your ministry and family

    Jermaine, thank you for giving more of us a chance to sign up for the course and dvd. That’s all good news. Rejuggling the schedule to be at the backdoor may be a challenge. but it is well worth it. You likely spent a lot more time and effort making room for more of us than we’ll spend changing our date and availability. Again, thank you for all that you are doing for us.

    RE: Imagine Me video – Great job Jeramine! You’re soo patience. You verbalize so well what musicians think & feel. I have Kirk’s songbook “Hero,” and it was much easier to understand the cords, progressions and patterns of the song in your video. Your breakdown was logical and educational (also, you have the art of incorporating all your previous learning sessions into your current tutorial.) I Appreciate your family sharing you with us! :) Be Blessed Griggs Family!!

    Hello Everyone,

    I’m not sure if it was the amount of people that
    hit the server all at once or a hardware problem
    but we were down for a whopping 5 hours this
    morning (still trying to figure out what went
    wrong).

    I was literally biting my nails and freakin’ out
    over here but the hosting company continued to
    work on it and finally got it up at 1:03 pm pacific.

    If you tried to access the latest videos earlier
    and couldn’t, please accept my apologies.

    Hi Jermaine,
    I’ve used your 1st book, talked about it to several musicians who’ve been watching your videos and have progressed well. They tell me that they are now the muscian for their church. Keep on doing what you’re doing. Congrats on your ntimemusic.com CD! May God continue to bless you and continue to bring your talents to another level.

    Jermaine,

    …..Jermaine…I’m speechless when I think about you………well let me tell you my story…..When my father bought my first Hear And play lesson my gift from God moved from the bottom of the barrel..to the top of the lid..Jermaine Hear and play was a blessing from God…after praying and fasting for twelve days….I’ve been playing the piano all my life but it seemed fustrating when people that only play for a year surpassed me…. 3 years ago you DVDs put me on and above the level that I should be….Overall 3 years ago your lessons encourage me to keep playing for God….I must say If this new DVD will go even higher than all I could say is praise God..I hope that the Music center is not that expensive…because I’m willing to have it and pay for it but the way the economy is my budget is alot smaller than it was three years ago….Jermaine If you ever read this long message I want you to know that I will always be greatfull for you and your ministry..I also want you to know that I’m one of your first customers….GOD BLESS

    You made it and all thanks goes to you. Several years ago I bought a keyboard and started. I like the sound (synths, sound engineering etc.), like the music, but hate the score. So I started to push the keys and played by ear (or learned the songs via midi – followed the enlightened keys on the display of my keyboard)… It was a great journey, but I was unable to write the song, only some let’s say jingles or the first steps to the songs. And most of all I didn’t know if I’m going the right way. That was why I decided to take piano lessons. My friend’s mother is retired piano teacher. She agreed to start learning me even in my age of 25 :) – great woman, but… when I asked for some questions – if I’m here what to push next, why that M7 at the end of pattern, where to go… I get very theoretical answer that didn’t fit to my improvised system :) we spoke in different language… I’m systematic IT guy, but the score… Okay I said to me – Do you want to play piano? So I pushed me and went through learning the scales and technique – and that was what hit me wrong… WHY – I don’t need that oldschool notation it in the 21st century, there have to be some better way to writedown my own music – and as I get to computer there you have the keyboard on the left and bars in the time line – thats how I see the music – keys pushed in the time. I didn’t want at that time to learn to play the scales fast, to practice (I connect it to my PC and play or record step by step), I didn’t want to play live in that time. Everything I was crazy about to know was that few hints/tricks/tips to compose :) I didn’t know if they exist but I needed them. I tried to get some books, but everything about music theory was in that old fashion. After some time I was confused and the keyboard was in the corner with a dust sat on it – I thought I would never learn to play – only that my way of exploring – but a lot of patience needed with non predictable result and a lot amount of time of course. So I only sometimes took my earphones and pushed some keys to get some nice sound :). I didn’t know where to go. I’d rather listen and repeat (okay – hear nad play :)) or get somebody to give some hints – one up / two down – 4-1 5-1, circle. But no body in my place could help me this way. Now you came and hit me as a flash :).I saw hearandplay.com… hmm another one, I said to me… I pushed play for the first 30min video – that was what I saw first… I had take the piano from the corner and started immediately. THAT FIRST VIDEO – I TOLD MYSELF WOW :D not an ordinary guy. By this second video I thought that my brain will explode and thats what I needed :). In those two videos you told to me (I think :)) everything I needed at that time when I started and you make my – for so long time – explored system of ups&downs :) tidy. Even I’m getting into those sus/adds which lights up to me on my keyboard when I played something wrong – that is how I knew them till now – I pushed something wrong…, but sometimes in some cases sounded nice :). I think that after some lessons I will get back to my unfinished archive and make some nice music out of it. Even if I will not get that free DVD course you made a lot for me – you gave me the hope again, after that years :). All thanks goes to you Jermaine Griggs from California! Regards Tom.

    What’s up Mr. Griggs, I see you have a nack for leaving all of us with our mouths hanging open. The day God allowed me to connect with the Hear and Play Music company over the web is the day he gave to me the edge I need to continue to play gospel music ( Church Musician ). I had almost gave it up ( becoming a musician ) because I could not find a teacher that would be willing to take on a student my age. So I stop trying to find one and turned to God in pray knowing all the time the hurt I was feeling inside about not measuring up to the tesk at hand. Now that he has directed me to you I have been revived in the spirit once again to carry on in the field I love so much. You see its not just a job to me were you get paid for service render but a vow unbrocken in unwavering service unto my God. So thanks again and keep up the good work!!!!!!!!

    Great work! All your instruction and site has really given me the inspiration to resume my music interest(piano and guitar) after being out of practice and out of the loop musically while raising kids starting a business for the last fifteen years. Thanks! I have begun a regular practice routine while trying to figure out some new equipment, etc. and even considering playing for a couple of churches churches in my area and I have never played gospel before. A real first for me.

    thank you Jermaine so much for giving me this opportunity! i feel like i am one of those musicians who are stuck at the same level. i will probably have a hard time getting one of your cd’s only because i don’t have an active bank account or credit card, but i really would like one because i think that it fits what i need perfectly, is there anyway possible that one could be held for me until i can get a current account? i probably know the answer, but it’s worth a try.

    Hello Jermaine,

    I have purchased a few of the courses and they have been extremely helpful. I am very good at composing using a DAW, but I’m not good at playing my keyboard with both hands and its nice to be able to following the DVD examples on fingering and chord techniques. Great job on the DVDs and with getting the right people to demontrate the lessons. It’s a blessing to have someone help you develop the musical gift in you, so that you can better produce what God has placed in your heart to touch the world. I have suggested your site and training to my friends to add to the fruit you already have.

    God Bless you and your family. Thanks!

    In paypal, you’ll need to go to the section that says “VIRTUAL DEBIT CARD.” Use the one that says “for multiple use.” This will give you a mastercard number that’s connected to your paypal account. This is the best way to use paypal. Let me know if you have any other questions. I can answer this live tonight as well.

I just wanted to stop by and tell you guys that I was watching the whole broadcast tonight (except the first 5 min and sometimes the ustream would go down but I’d switch back to blogtalk but I noticed it seemed to be a couple min behind the video stream).

    Likely this should have been handled via e-mail using the time stamps on the e-mail. Too soon, you did’t follow rules and you’re out. Otherwise, take the orders based on the time stamp.

    Did anyone else think about the difficulty of passing through the eye of a needle?

    I was there at the backdoor for the opening second and no matter how I struggled over the next hour and a half I couldn’t get in. Finally I was able to scurry through and have no idea what number my order was but am grateful that soon access to the training site will arrive in my email confirmation. For those who haven’t gotten in yet, keep trying. The needle’s eye is tiny but some of us can and will get through. Don’t let discouragement impede you.

    Hey Jermaine. This is my first comment on your tutorials. They have been so helpful to me. I’m minister of music at my church and I’ve used many of the chords I’ve learned from you. God is working in your life and you’re blessing many people. I also play bass guitar. What DVD would you recommend for learning more on gospel bass? Let me know.

    Thanks,
    Shalondia

    This was so cool! I really appreciated this video. I had prayed and hoped years ago that someone would break things down as you do – and then to place it on video – on the web? Just what I’ve been looking for in quite a long while.

    Keep up with your generous spirit! It will come back in bundles, bushels and mountains.

    Another awesome production. You lost me a little on the changing of chords because you were going to close. Perhaps you will be doing something in one of your classes or courses on transposing keys/chords.

    You have really been given a gift from God. I am really impressed by the way you break down songs to make it easy for the newbie to understand. You are truly blessed. I pray that God will continue to use you and give you more creative ideas so that you can use your gift to touch more people world-wide.

    Thanks for your obedience and commitment.

    I have played piano for about 30 years. I learned to play by ear. I asked other musicians for help and never received it. They always would say I’ll meet you but would never show, they never had time. My son told me about “Youtube” I started exploring and found your lesson and I am very happy I found it. Today is my first day. I found my playing to be a little drab I wanted to liven it up. Spice it up and I thing you have the right spice in your method I need and have been looking for. May God bless and keep you is my prayer. New Member Thelma

    I was a little overwelmed by it all. You have a very good teaching technique and I have so much to learn. I will do my best to try and hang in there. I look forward to taking step two. Today was lesson one and I feel a little more free not to be trapped by so much by notes on a piece of paper. Your class was intense though it will take a week or so to set in.

    Take care

    I have been playing for my churh for several years, strictly by notes. I cannot transpose to other keys. This first lesson has inspired me alot to want to learn more of chording and transposing. Thanks so much. Wish I could have u come to my house for a more personal lesson session.

    Thank you for teaching that beautiful song. It was so easy to learn. Please continue what you are doing. I play by ear, and I know the keys. Also, I was up late last night trying to figure out which program to purchase, because I need a lot of help. I purchased Gospel Keys 202 and 500. I can not wait for them to arrive.

I don’t know where to start with your lessons. I really have a great desire to play the piano and to play by hear I’m just having a bit of trouble beginning. Do you have any recommendations?

    Dear Jermaine,
    I can’t begin to say how thankful I am to God for bringing your ministry to
    pass. I’m 59 yrs. of age and have longed for the opportunity to be able to access the gospel music techniques for church services. I cannot at this time convey all
    that has transpired in my life concerning the desire to play, but as time goes on
    it shall be revealed. At this time I am to overwhelmed about this program. No one
    can begin to understand how I feel except others such as myself. Gods continued
    blessings be upon all your endeavors in his work of the ministry.
    Thank You,
    Ever so grateful

    Wow! You’ve awakened something within me that I thought would eventually fade away…but now I feel more confident to start with my training. First of all I need to fix my keyboard. We are reaching out to the lost with open air services and sometimes the band are not available and thus the reason why I want to master the piano… to be of service to the Lord.

    Thanks a million for all your effort and time.
