    Step One: Determining the Melody

    The first step of the process is to learn how to determine the melody. To be very honest, this concept is very easy to grasp and doesn’t require 300 pages to accomplish.

The following lesson is taken right out of our 300-pg course (pgs 252-254): 


    Again, this is just 3 pages on harmonizing melodies. If you are truly serious about taking your piano playing and music knowledge to the next level, I invite you to read more about my 300-pg course entitled, "The Secrets to Playing Piano By Ear."

    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.
