Play Piano By Ear Course

300 pg Course

Here's what my friend Ecio has to say:

"I want to send my thanks wholeheartedly to Jermaine and the team that makes possible to all of us hearandplay. I wanted to point that I have found a great deal of satisfaction in using the 300pg course. The course takes an easy approach to concepts that otherwise seem unreachable for those of us that use the self teaching approach. Although many of the concepts I've read before in other methods, I find amazing that Jermaine seems to expose every idea with the simplicity that makes it so easy to understand."

LadyD says:

* The 300 page course is a theory book with bonus CD (sound library- audio examples).
* I have found Jermaine's theory concepts simple to understand and apply.
* I am able to recognize songs, melodies and chords by ear better because of this course.

Have you seen the new HearandPlay Video?

Dear Friend,

If you are interested in taking your piano playing to the next
level, I think I may have struck the right chord for you. Just
last week, I was contacted by my friends over at
who specialize in teaching people how to play piano by ear.

Jermaine Griggs, the President of HearandPlay, just let me know
that his site had recently been updated with a few new piano

When I finally checked it out (because I was very busy last
week), I noticed one particular article that discusses the
differences between musicians who play piano from sheet music
and others who play by ear --- some of the advantages and
disadvantages of both.

The article focuses more on the advantages of playing by ear
--- obviously because that's their specialty. Here are just a
few of the many examples of what they said (you'll have to check
out the article for yourself to get the full story):

Advantages of Playing Piano By Ear

1) "Being able to instantly recognize chords that are played in
songs even without being at a piano."

How does this help you?

"You are able to learn songs faster and easier because you
understand why chords are played at certain points in songs."

2) "Not required to memorize chord progressions (pattern of
chords played one after the other) because understanding them
will automatically incline you to know what chord to play next."

How does this help you?

"Allows you to improvise and add your own "flavor" to the song.
This is especially advantageous when playing in a church as you
can never predict how long a song will be sung or what key the
singer might resolve to. In a band, this might be helpful if the
leader simply instructs everyone to surprisingly repeat a part
of the song or change the key in which the song is currently
being played in."

3) "Will allow you to use the same methods to play virtually any
song you want (most songs; don't quote me if you're referring to
Mozart as this might take more practice than most other songs)."

How does this help you?

"Saves you the money and time of having to go out and buy the
sheet music to a song that you've already learned how to play by
using the ability of your ear to recognize melodies, chords, and
progressions. However, buying the sheet music isn't a bad idea
if you want to learn specific parts to songs that have high
levels of complexity."


You know... I could really go on and on about this article,but due
to the lack of space, I'm going to have to send you to the
article so you can check it out for yourself:

Go to: Learn To Play By Ear

(...and if you're really serious about taking your piano playing
to the next level, you might want to consider taking them up on
their 300-pg course, "The Secrets to Playing Piano by Ear").

Meanwhile, let me know if you have any questions and I'll
answer or pass them to the right folks at

Again, go to:
Learn To play By Ear

All the best,

P.S. - There's also a little section in the article that talks
about major and minor scales, chords, and progressions. Check
out that section too.
