• Time to Share Some Family Pics

    in Personal Blog

    If you’ve been with me long enough, you’ve seen me grow from a skinny, goofy teenager (when I first started this site at 17) to a muscular, handsome heartthrob. (Ok, the “muscular” and “heartthrob” part are a little far-fetched but at least give me the “handsome!”)

    More importantly, from a dependent kid without a responsibility in the world to a married man and father of 3.

    So in this post, I thought I’d take a break from music and share some family pics. They are long overdue.

    Brendan, our latest addition - born Dec 7, 2010

    Mommy, daddy, and Layla... our youngest daughter

    Jadyn (our oldest, 4) and Layla (1) playing

    Another pic of Brendan

    Jadyn and Layla posing


    My favorite throwback - Mommy, daddy, and Jadyn (oldest). She's no baby anymore!

    And the day that started it all... April 2, 2005

    Or maybe this started it all? High school, 1999

    Unfortunately, we haven’t taken an “official” family pic since the one with Jadyn so we’ll be doing that very soon with the entire QUINTET! I’ll post that one as soon as I get it.

    Take care,

    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!

    I am so very happy to finally be able to see your family. I see a lot of love there and that is always awesome. As we know God is love so, to see love lets me know that God is there. And with God you cannot loose. Peace and blessings to you and your family. On a personal note I just want to say: I am honored to be a part of your Hear and Play family

    As always your brother,

    You are such a special person, so generous with your music knowledge, so encouraging and always presenting your lessons in such a fun and clear way.

    In all that you do, remember the smiles and joy of your wife and children. Trust me, there is no greater gift (even playing the piano). I am happy you found love before your success as this is so important. Your wife is so lovely and the children are beautiful. May God continue to bless you all.
