So, what are my favorite music resources from this company that have enhanced my piano playing? Below I have listed some of the music dvds that are in my piano studio library that I recommend:
* Hear and Play Chords 101: Introduction To Chords
In 2 full hours of step-by-step audio instruction, we take you from the very beginning and explain how to construct various chords, when and where to use them, and how to apply them in real-life situations.
Some of my high school beginner piano students use this audio course to get familiar with chords.Was $29.00 Now $16.43
* Hear and Play Chords 102: The Power of Seventh Chords
This audio course will start where chords 101 left off and show you step-by-step…
- How to form various types of seventh chords and why they are so important in playing by ear.
- Why seventh chords are the foundation of many more extended chords like ninths, elevenths, thirteenths, and altered voicings.
* Gospel Keys 101: Hymns and Congregational Hymns
This instructional course will teach you everything you need to know to start playing basic hymns and congregational songs by ear. We teach you a proven three step process and once you've mastered the system, you'll be able playing dozens of songs on your own in addition to the ones you'll learn by the end of the program! This is the first music online purchase that sent me on my way to playing by ear.
Was $47. Now $26.79
* Gospel Keys 201: Mastering Worship Chords
Gospel Keys 202 DVD will show you, step-by-step, how to play contemporary worship music by ear. We take you through every tone of the major scale and show you literally tons of chords you can play ranging from major, minor, diminished, dominant, sevenths, ninths, elevenths, thirteenths, altered chords, and more! Then you'll learn how to pair these chords together to create small progressions we call "couples." These progressions create your contemporary worship music.
Was $65.00 now $37.05
* Gospel Keys Urban Pro 600
You'll learn how to combine these modern, two-hand voicings into progressions and urban movements that are heard in countless numbers of gospel songs. On top of that, the emphasis on how to use grace notes, slides, pivoting tones, fill-ins, and other nuances will give you many of the necessary techniques to take your contemporary gospel playing to that next level! You'll study everything from major, minor, dominant, diminished, augmented, seventh, ninth, eleventh, and thirteenth chords — the big difference, however, is that you get loads of unique urban and contemporary ways to voice these chords. I especially love the way Jonathan Powell introduces you to his West Coast Urban piano style. 4 Discs Was $89. Now $50.73
There's so much more. I recommended Drums 101, 102 and 103 to our drummer and he invested in this resource. You can also take a look of a preview on YouTube. If you've always wanted to learn Salsa Piano, Hear and Play has a course on that, too.
Plus, my favorite is Jazz and you will learn tons of info from Jazz 101 and Jazz 201.
In addition to your instrument instructions, don't forget 10-disc voice set. This course specializes in teaching you everything you need to know to start singing the right way.
I play a little guitar but those barre chords are challenging for me. Take a look at this one, too. Gospel Guitar 101: How To play Praise Songs On The Guitar!
