Dear Fellow Musician,

Haven't you ever had the desire to just sit down at the piano, pop on your headphones and just start to learn and practice without ever having to leave the house?

Or wouldn't you like to simply drop a CD into your home or car stereo player and learn everything you needed to know to start playing beautiful chords on the piano?

I'm talking about all the same chords used to play practically every popular song out there! The ones you grew up listening to... the songs you now enjoy... classic holiday tunes... even your kids' favorite songs... and more!

What if you could learn all the chords that make up those songs in just an hour or so? Would you be excited?

Well... You should be!

If you have an iPod, MP3 player, CD player or even just your computer, then you have what it takes to start mastering chords by ear. Listen to this nearly 2 hour long course as often as you want and reach for your musical dream. HearandPlay 

On this page, I'm going to reveal an approach that allows you to learn no matter where you are: at your piano, in your car, on your iPod® while at the gym --- ANYWHERE!

Here's some more info about this tested and proven approach...

  • It starts you from scratch, so you won't need any experience or prior knowledge. Just pop in my nearly 2-hour audio course from the very beginning and you'll be well on your way to learning everything you need to know to play popular chords by ear.

  • No sheet music, so you can expect to be playing chords without having to rely on any! You're going to understand the "how" and "why" behind chords, and once done, you'll have a well-rounded education after just two hours with me.

  • No boring book work! Everything is audio-based. Whether at your piano, in the car, or exercising, you'll benefit from this convenient way to learn. I designed this audio program with busy people in mind so you'll find many shortcuts aimed at getting you up and playing in the fastest possible time. No fluff. No hype. Straight to the point! 

Let's Get Right To It!

Here's a detailed overview of what you can expect to learn in my comprehensive "chords" audio series.

Hear & Play Chords 101 Audio Program Overview: "Introduction to Chords"

  • Step-by-step, you'll learn:HearandPlay

  • How to form various types of chords: major, minor, diminished, augmented and the easy theory behind them. DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED. You'll literally laugh when you discover how easy it is to play all of these chords by ear!

  • The classes of chords and the difference between triads, sevenths, ninths, elevenths, and thirteenths... all broken down in "normal," down-to-earth, language.

  • One magic formula that creates all the chords you'll ever need to know. All I'll tell you is that it involves two words: Quality & Quantity (and you need both in order to create all chords).

  • How notes create scales... scales create chords... and chords create progressions. Once you master this simple process, learning songs comes easy... even to a beginner!

  • How to form any major scale in seconds using my "Why Won't He Wear White When Hot" trick. You won't find this taught anywhere else because it's totally out-of-the-box.

    These are the tricks students need to bring theoretical, intimidating concepts down to earth... and to stop from boring themselves to death! My courses are full of these creative tricks!

  • Easy ways to understand intervals (which are merely distances between notes). There are melodic intervals and harmonic intervals and you'll learn both. Simply put, if you can understand freeway signs: "Next exit in 3 miles"... then you can understand intervals!

  • The secret behind the "number system" and how to use it to learn practically any chord out there. I'll prove it to you with 7 practical examples.

  • The "interval" approach and how to never mislabel notes and chords again by simply mastering two simple rules that'll stick with you for the rest of your music career.

  • The difference between generic and specific intervals HearandPlayand why it's important to master both. Hint: One is like the "shape" of the chord while the other is like the "size." You need both to properly describe any chord.

  • The concept of superimposing one interval over another to create something bigger than the two parts, separately.
    Forget big words... superimposing simply means to stack one thing on top of another (like one box on top the other). This happens a lot in music!

  • All the formulas you need to know to play triads (M3 + m3), (m3 + M3), (m3 + m3), (M3 + M3), etc. Each of these give you an entirely different chord and sound!

  • How to master inversions (root position, first inversion, second inversion, etc.). An inversion is simply a different way to play the same chord and you'll learn just how to do it!

  • How to use triads in a major scale and how to determine the primary chords of every key. Hint: Once you know the primary chords in a key, they will be the most common chords played in most songs.

  • And much more.

And what's more, as it's a download, you can have it in just minutes from now!!

If you had to pay for 2 hours of piano lessons, you'd pay over $100 with private lessons ranging from $15-$30 or more per half-hour. And most likely, you won't get professionally-recorded audio to listen to on your own.

With that said, we have priced this nearly 2-hour audio course at an exceptional value of just $27.95 for the download version--- surely less than  the price you'll pay for just 30 minutes with most teachers (except in this case, you'll get nearly two hours of training instead).

I have been playing for 40 years and have not had many lessons. These keyboard courses are the most organized method to getting a well rounded keyboard education. There is no substitute for these courses. In a matter of minutes I saw and heard many aspects of playing that I never could get my wits around...thank you for this opportunity.

Dan Naimowicz




Jermaine, It is always an honor and a pleasure to share blessings! Hear and Play is one of the best things that have happened to me and my fiancé Albert Williams! We just THANK GOD for giving us an opportunity to learn from and be a part of such a wonderful and vibrant productive family! We have seen the glory of God through all of the courses and resources!

As Albert is at work now, I speak on his behalf to say he takes his courses to look at during his breaks and every possible chance he has. It has been his persistence and growth that has inspired me so. All of your teachings and lessons have been such a wonderful joy to the both of us. We talk about the fact all the time that to be able to have the opportunity to learn things that we each have always wanted and for various reasons unable to do so until now is another miracle from God! Albert, has learned ahead of me many of the lessons and it is such a joy now to have him teach me a lot. He has course materials all around and portable players to listen to the audios while on the go. I am still trying to learn my basics but I am smiling as I write this testimony knowing I will eventually get there. This is the power of practice and having such a great inspiration! I thank you! We thank you! We thank God!

I thought I had a decent grasp on music theory after having played guitar for 13 years. I tried my best to apply this
knowledge to the piano when I decided to learn to play. I had very limited results. But after one night (literally) of taking your lessons, my understanding of chord structures and my playing ability was revolutionized. Thanks HearandPlay!

I am so very ecstatic about Hear and Play™! Hear and Play™ is a wonderful company! Jermaine Griggs is absolutely a genius, teaching people all over the country how to play gospel music on the keyboard, by ear! I think it's phenomenal!

God bless you and be prosperous!

I purchased your courses and I was very impressed by the professional quality of your product. I plan on ordering even more of your products in the future. This is in great contrast to other products I've ordered online. I ordered instructional materials from [various sites], and I was not impressed. Yours is truly a "good deal" for the money, and I will send many folks your way! I'm playing better already!

God Bless!
Bart Edmonds


Jermaine has cleaned the window to my mind of understanding. I now pick out chord progressions in songs just by hearing them.

After years someone has given ear trained musicians the resource they need to truly play by ear. Thanks Hear and Play!

My name is Charles Shelton Jr., and I've been playing keys for about 10 years now. This site has really helped me out a lot by various lessons and being able to learn the newest songs out on the market. Especially with the virtual chord finder that is a major help if you can't read music.

Especially, being a world renowned drummer it helps so I can help write keyboard parts. A lot of you all have probably seen me on the Word Network. I've been on shows like the Charles Shelton Jr. show on the Word Network, Dr. Bobby Jones Show, Pax Network, Sky Angel, as well as touring and doing clinics in many different cities. I also have an instructional Gospel Drumming Dud that I have for sale for all ages.

Jermaine Griggs is a blessing. Being a promoter and endorser of different products, I don't advertise or endorse just anything. Jermaine, you are a blessing... keep up the good work.

I'm Evelyn. I've been playing piano for 9 months. Since I've discovered this site, I only knew some chords to play but now my piano playing has improved greatly!

Not only that, I've also learned some gospel songs through your courses. And most of all there are so many friends who encourage and feed me the word of God. You get everything you need from this site! Thank You Jermaine!





 My name is Ed and I am a trumpet player and instructor in Florida. Honestly, I was skeptical about this course at first. I went through the entire site and read everything I could about this system. I decided to sign up for the lessons to finally prove or disprove my reservations about this course.

After doing the lessons I must say that I was very impressed! I definitely learned a lot and some different ways to think about music that made a lot of things so simple. It is even evident in my trumpet playing. I have had the opportunity in my life to talk to and perform with some of the great musicians of our time and in talking to other trumpet players (Gillespie, Marsalis, Sandoval, Ferguson, Faddis and so on...) they all suggested that I learn how to play the piano to really get inside the music.

The people who heard me before and after I started this course have noticed a difference in my trumpet performance! As I get deeper and deeper into this course my ears are really starting to open up and "hear" many different sounds and tones in which I never paid any attention to before! I just want to say "THANKS" for such a great course. I also want to give my personal endorsement for this course and suggest that all musicians (especially the wind players) get this course so you and others can "Hear" a difference when you "Play!"

God Blesses,




I started at a young age and then quit piano. Then again as a teenager, I went to a very well known, orthodox, and conservative piano teacher trying to acquire appropriate skills and techniques to fulfill my dream of being a professional concert pianist. I failed miserably and later ended up with a Marketing career instead!

Many more years afterwards I returned to piano, taking it up as one of my more intense and passionate hobbies, somewhat trying to do and accomplish what I failed doing years ago.

Thanks to Jermaine Griggs and the HearandPlay family, now as a middle-aged piano player, I'm gradually unlearning most of my bad techniques and habits of my younger days. The website is helping me rebuild my confidence and wish I had discovered some of these teachings long time ago....Where were you Jermaine?

I am so delighted that I found the HearandPlay Zone and in turn , Jermaine Griggs' courses. Jermaine, thanks for making the piano learning methodology so user-friendly , well-structured, easy-to-remember and enjoyable. I truly appreciate your efforts for describing the piano technique and practice habits on a down-to-earth level that makes sense!

 This "hands on" nature of the program along with its "interactive" approach focuses on the fun and sheer pleasure of playing music. The results dispel the notion that learning to play means enduring years of lessons, relentless hours of drills, and boring practice sessions. This site is a powerful tool for anyone, especially newbies interested in learning and growing. You rock Hearandplay!

Peace, Music n Luv!
