A Personal Message
from Jermaine Griggs...
 

Dear Gospel Musician,

If you've always imagined yourself playing fast, uptempo "shouting" music at church --- or being able to play in a band during high praise moments of a service...

...Then this may be one of the most important letters you'll ever read concerning this style of playing.

In fact, this is one of the very few resources available on "shouting music," as you just don't hear of this concept being taught at the local performing arts academy or university.

When's the last time you've heard of someone receiving a certification or degree in "spirit-filled, uptempo, shouting music?" You probably haven't.

Why?

... Why are there so many churches on every corner but very few resources to equip gospel musicians with the information and techniques necessary to effectively lead their church services?

One of the answers is that gospel music is so specialized and unique that the average classical or jazz teacher either cannot play the style very well (...and thus can't really teach it) OR doesn't care to teach the style because there are enough customers that want to sight read or play classical music.

As honestly as I can put it...

It just takes a spirit-filled person to teach a sprit-filled style of music.

 

I'm talking about learning, step-by-step:

>>> How to skillfully play the piano, organ, or keyboard during "high praise" moments of the service. These are times when the saints of God are dancing and shouting for Jesus!

>>> How to keep the "shouting period" strong and progressive with a number of left and right-hand chordal movements and techniques.

>>> How to build up shouting music from scratch. From experience, most musicians find it hard to naturally start the "shout" without being too obtrusive. It should be a natural build-up and certainly in alignment with what's occurring in the congregation (...not just for the fun of it).

>>> What exactly to play on your left-hand and how to compliment it with right-hand tricks. Since shouting music is redundant (...usually the same pattern repeated over and over), it helps to have a variety of tricks and chordal movements to pull out of your toolbox!

>>> The three steps to shouting music and how each part will drastically change the way you look at fast and uptempo shouting styles!

>>> and much more!

Click below to hear a sample of the style of shouting music you'll learn from me:

 

 

But don't forget:

Playing shouting music is not just about fast-moving bass runs and right-hand fill-ins (as I'll explain below), but you must be tuned in to know when to start the "shouting" music... when to "cool" it down (this is a specialized technique that I'll show you), and how to "push" it steadily, when necessary.

There are certain chords and movements you'll play at different times... a variation of bass runs (if you're playing without a bass player), and a number of progressions that work best at certain periods. And even though shouting music seems to be the same thing played over over, with my three-step process, you'll learn how to break them up and play certain parts at certain times ("The Intro," "The Main Loop," "The Cool-Down").

 

You may be wondering by now:

"Well... if hardly anyone is teaching shouting music and gospel music principles in general, then how have musicians learned this style in the past?"

The answer:

The "School of Hard Knocks"...

 

Most musicians have learned what it takes to play gospel music by doing one or more of the following:

  • Looking over other musician's shoulders and watching carefully what they do. Many gospel music techniques are passed down from musician to musician. These days, however, many musicians are reluctant to share new chords and techniques with others for many reasons.

  • Paying for lessons from the church musician. Usually, this is more of a sharing of chords and songs than actual lessons that teach theory and systematic ways to play the piano. Don't get me wrong. Many church musicians know chord names and can teach the reasons behind why certain chords are played. However, this may not always be the case, so if you find a good one, hang on to them!

  • Sitting down for hours poking at the piano and figuring things out on their own. This is, undoubtedly, the driven, hungry musician who wants to be the best at what they do. They may read chord books and apply concepts from other genres of music (like jazz) and innovate unique ways to play gospel music.

  • Shedding with other musician friends after church or at a weekly rehearsal. This is a little different than just peaking over someone's shoulder. Usually, musicians on the same level (or members of a band) will get together and share chords and tricks among each other. Beware, if you're an "old-school" piano player or a beginner --- you may get laughed out the group.

  • Classically training at an institute/school in other styles of music and successfully crossing over to gospel. You'll hear many other influential genres in the playing styles of gospel greats like Richard Smallwood and others.

These are just some of the ways musicians learn to play gospel music by ear. Of course, there are many more.


"I've been using your techniques for three years now and they have turned my playing around. It really hurts when people at your church tell you that you can't play. It made me seek more help and I'm glad I found you guys. Ever since I've been learning how to play praise songs and worship music from you, my playing has become more modern and I'm finally getting good stares from the people. Hearandplay, thanks much and I'll be first in line for all your new products!

But then came online gospel music learning resources...

Regardless of how you learned gospel music in the past, with the power of the internet and gospel music resources like this site, you now have at your fingertips the techniques, principles, concepts, and tricks to playing gospel music --- without the learning curve (years) and frustration of having to get chords from other musicians.

Just before I show you more details on shouting music, here's a few things about myself:

 

I am the founder of HearandPlay and have taught thousands of people how to play the piano by ear:

gk202picaa.jpg>>> Over 33,165 people from over 53 Countries have already relied on me to teach them how to play the piano through my various paid courses. Many of them have since gone on to play in bands, churches, special events and more

>>> I currently serve more than 202,364 online members and supply over 1,500,000 visitors (that's ONE AND HALF MILLION PEOPLE) per year with my online piano lessons, newsletters, and more!

>>> Over 1,423 of them now teach beginning piano to students! Imagine going from learning piano in a few months to passing on your knowledge to children in your community, church ... or even family members! [Survey updated: 3/25/04]

gk202picbb.jpg>>> Hundreds of them now play the piano for their churches, special events (weddings, celebrations, ceremonies, parties ... and the list goes on) and even assist in directing the choir. These secrets will open up unimaginable doors!  .... believe me, I use them myself!. [Survey updated: 3/25/04]

>>> Students have paid me anywhere from $45 to $125 an hour for musical instruction. Since launching HearandPlay in August 2000, I no longer teach privately as this website has grown to be one of the leading resources on the net serving a couple hundred thousand subscribers with our piano lessons, newsletters, and more (see above).

These organizations along with many others have been impacted and have honored me for my accomplishments in various fields ...

TESTIMONIAL


"I originally bought your 300-pg course to learn the basics. You then allowed me to be one of your "pre-testers" for your new gospel videos. I can't believe what I've been able to accomplish in just a couple of hours. It's amazing how you can just learn a few things that will last you a lifetime. This is definitely one of those things. I've now used these bass runs and chords in a dozen of my praise songs. I didn't even know the beginning to playing bass runs. You've opened a door for me that no one can ever close."

Darlita Thompson, 31, Ohio


 

Finally, you can learn what it takes to hold an entire church service --- including the "shouting" periods!

 

Here is what you'll gain from studying with me:

===> How to master shouting music by learning my never-before-seen techniques. I break shouting music into three key sections: "The Shouting Intro," "The Main Loop Period" and "The Cool-down." You'll explore each part, step-by-step. I guarantee that you won't find shouting music taught in these 3 steps ANYWHERE ELSE!
 
===> Discover the secrets to effectively playing shouting music and how to properly begin and end your playing naturally. This is one of the most awkward things in shouting music: The beginning and ending.
 
===> The power of tritones in shouting music and how they allow your right hand to play fast-moving movements, fill-ins, and runs at double the speed!
 
===> How to play common shouting songs like "When I Think of the Goodness of Jesus" (aka "I can dance, dance, dance ALL NIGHT!"). Every musician should know this version of shouting music because it's bound to pop up sooner or later in someone's church service!
 
 
 
No more looking over the shoulders of others. Now musicians will be stealing your secrets!
 
 
===> How to play left-hand bass runs, right hand chordal movements, and fill-ins (all covered in my "Main Loop Period" section) at high tempos and how to keep the speed of your shouting music consistent at all times!
 
===> The difference between praise songs and shouting music and how to determine whether to play in a linear or non-linear style. Tip: Shouting music, for the most part, is non-linear (no particular order). You'll also learn linear shouting patterns that are common among gospel bands these days.
 
===> How to use modulation to increase the intensity of your playing during the highest points of the shouting period. This "constant modulation" is heard in many gospel songs and you'll be able to apply it to your shouting music immediately!

 

Whether you're intermediate or advanced, there's something to learn in GospelKeysTM 500!
 
===> How to add flavor to your shouting music by exploring various advance techniques like "stride piano," "modulation," "role reversal," "linear shouting patterns," and a lot more!
 
===> How to play "prepared and planned" shouts that all instruments can follow (bass, organ, piano, guitar). This is what I call "linear shouting patterns." Learn the ins and outs of changing keys and how to make sure all instruments are on the same page!
 
===> How to start a "shout" from scratch! I've found that it is very difficult for musicians to initially start shouting music during a high praise part of the church service. I'll show you several versions of what I call "The Intro" and how to make the beginning of your shouting music sound natural!

 Here are just three of many case-studies from my past GospelKeysTM courses...

Tanisha Barnes from New Jersey had been playing for her church for about 2 years when she started studying with HearandPlay. After receiving our 300-pg course and having huge success with it, we invited her to be one of our pre-testers for the new upcoming video series.

"I was lucky to play at my father's church for a while but I wasn't growing like I knew I could. After taking your video course, I figured out what I was doing wrong. It wasn't long before I had improved my left hand bass and even added more chord progressions to what I was already playing. I didn't want to tell my father I was studying a course. I wanted him to comment on my growth before I told him. Soon, he approached me and told me that God had really anointed my hands during the last few services. I told him that I had truly received a gift from God. Thanks Hearandplay. You're a Godsend.

Tanisha Barnes, 22, New Jersey

 

Steve King was totally new to the piano. According to his story, he had just been blessed with a new "Korg Triton" keyboard. Coincidentally, one of his church's musicians left around the same time. He knew this would be an opportunity for him to fill a gap.

"All things happen for a reason. I didn't have to get a new keyboard. An opportunity didn't have to arise at my church. I didn't have to stumble across your website. But I did and I am forever thankful that I did. Can't anyone one tell me that this site isn't a ministry because it is. Yes, it is a business and yes, you must profit but overall, this company is a ministry. If you can take someone with no prior experience, no knowledge or anything and turn him into a church musician who can hold a service, then you're a ministry. I know I sound redundant but I just get excited about what God is doing in my life. May God continue to bless you and your ministry Rev. Griggs."

Steve King, 48, Florida

 

Darnelius Crawford has been a church drummer for 17 years. For the past three years, he has been playing the organ at church. We wanted to test these techniques on organists (as the concepts are very similar except for the actual operation of the organ). Since he already knew how to operate the drawbars and everything, all he needed was bass runs, chords, progressions, "fill-ins" and licks.

"I probably was the first one to doubt that you could take keyboard and piano techniques and apply them to the organ. I am also probably one of the first to swallow my own doubts. I literally took everything that he showed me in the video and applied it to the organ in less than a few hours. The part about playing with a bass player was very helpful as I could use my foot as the bass and utilize my left and right hands just as a pianist would. I can definitely say that I've learned so much more than I knew and have been inspired to learn as much as I can. My search for new knowledge will never end."

Darnelius Crawford, 32, Oregon

You could be getting similar or even better results. All it takes is applying a few of the simple techniques and rules that I use in my "GospelKeysTM 500" dvd course, "Experiencing Uptempo Shouting Music!"

 

 

Don't you want to study at your own pace? Aren't you tired of always having to look over someone else's shoulders? Here's what my GospelKeysTM 500 course has to offer:

 

My GospelKeysTM 500 dvd course will teach you everything you need to know to play uptempo shouting music by ear. In three steps, you'll learn everything from left-hand bass runs, right-hand fill-ins and chordal movements, "cool-downs," advanced stride techniques, basic progressions, and much more!

Here's what you'll get:

>>> 60+ minutes of step-by-step, over-the-shoulder footage of what I play the most during shouting periods. Not only will I "show" you what I play, but I will make sure you understand "why" and "where" to use these bass runs, chords, movements, fill-ins, and progressions.

>>> Over six segments of useful information and examples. From the "shouting music intro" and "main loop period" to the "cool down" and "beyond the basic" sections, you'll learn tons of useful tips, tricks, and techniques to playing shouting music --- by ear!

>>> On-screen titles and descriptions to make sure you know exactly what I'm demonstrating to you. You'll never miss the name of a chord or what notes to play in the chord! Everything is s-p-e-l-l-e-d out note for note, chord for chord!

>>> Emphasis of all techniques to guarantee that you never miss a beat. Even though this style of music is fast by nature, I will never quickly fly through anything that I teach you. In fact, I usually play all examples more than two or three times and thoroughly explain the theory behind each concept.

>>> Overhead keyboard view for convenient learning. Every chord... every bass run... every fill-in is shown clearly with a dedicated overhead camera. Plus, I'm always calling out every chord, scale, bass run, and movement I play to make sure you don't miss out on one single concept!

   

 

 

Plus, you'll get:

BONUS #1: GospelKeysTM 500: "Experiencing Uptempo Shouting Music" Dvd #2

I originally planned to sell dvds 1 and 2 separately (a basic and extended version) and I probably will in the near future depending on how well they do. Dvd 2 (60 additional minutes) covers more advanced techniques like:

  • How to reverse you're thinking and temporarily transpose your shouting music to a different key (a perfect fourth up). It creates a strong pull back to the original key and provides intensity for your shouting music!

  • How to modulate up to 12 times during your "shout" and how these incremental modulations increase the energy of your shouting music each time you climax!

  • How to master linear shouting patterns. Usually shouting music is non-linear (...which means you don't have to really memorize an order of chords and movements because it repeats the same thing over and over). However, I'll teach you a linear variation of shouting music and how to get all instruments on one accord!

When I start selling disc 2 separately (and this could be any day now), it will sell for no less than $45 (which is barely the cost of two 30-minute sessions with an affordable piano teacher --- and that's if you're lucky enough to find one who specializes in gospel music). But it's yours free as part of this comprehensive program.

 

BONUS #2 :  One 15-minute consultation with my staff just in case you have any questions about what I'm playing in the two dvds.

There's no other gospel training site online offering this type of value to its customers. Not only will I throw in both discs, but I am willing to offer a FREE consultation. There are only three requirements that I ask of you:

  • All appointments are to be scheduled at least 24 hours in advanced.

  • All students must call our direct support line (just like you do for software troubleshooting or any other huge "Fortune 500" company).

  • If you want follow-up consultations beyond your first session, there will be a small nominal fee to support the consultation program (or else we'd literally be booked for 1,000+ consultations per month).

If you agree with those easy requirements, then this program will definitely benefit you. When's the last time you bought something that came with a personal tutor? Now you have one at your disposal if you choose to take advantage of this service. My teachers normally charge $30-$40 per half hour for something like this. So when you call, just think of it as about $15-$20 saved. FREE for our students.

 

Listen. Here's what I'm going to do for you...

If you're truly serious about playing shouting music by ear, then you won't have a problem with this deal --- at all. I'll give you GospelKeysTM 500 Disc 1 plus Disc 2 (a $45 value by itself) AND I will extend to you a free consultation (normally $19.95 per session). 120 minutes(...that's 2 hours) of step-by-step guidance plus support ... what else could you ask for?

For all of this, I could very well charge over $95 and still get tons of orders for both tapes and the consultation (wouldn't you agree)? With values at $45.00 for each disc (60 minutes each), that price would be well justified. Heck I know other sites charging well over $90 per course so I definitely know the going-rate for such specialized and in-demand material.

But don't worry --- because I'm not going to charge you $95 or $90. I'm not going to even charge you $60 or $50 for the two-hour, two-disc set.

For just $47, this entire GospelKeysTM 500 Series plus the bonuses (2 hours total)  can be yours. This offer is subject to change at any time (so if you're really interested in this dvd course, I suggest you act quickly --- otherwise, you might end up paying $90 or more in the future).

Click here if you're ready to order online through our secure server.

If not, my "nothing to lose and everything to gain" guarantee should help you make a decision --- OR YOU'RE JUST NOT SERIOUS ABOUT THIS.

 

Even though the price is extremely reasonable (about one ticket to a local basketball game), here's what's really important. If this program was just another useless course that just sat in your bookshelf collecting dust and didn't teach you anything new, it wouldn't matter what the price was. IT WOULDN'T BE WORTH ONE SILVER DIME.

But imagine if you can learn just a dozen new tricks and techniques (...new chords, bass lines, movements, fill-ins, and "runs")... what is that actually worth to you?

If you'll finally be able to play for your church like you've been desiring to, what is this course worth to you?

Picture this:

It's a year from today(or a lot sooner), and you're now playing for the church of your dreams. Even if you're not the type to except money, the pastor insists that you take a paycheck of $200-$300 per Sunday. You're not afraid of playing a "shout" anymore and can hold down an entire service from beginning to end, no matter how much back up you have.

Even better, you know for a fact that your musical skills are so good that you could be playing for multiple churches but decide to remain at your current church as the new Minister of Music. The choir loves the way you play. The Pastor loves the way you play --- and most of all, you love the way you play!

Now, stop and look back on today. Considering that you've now made your musical dreams come true, what price tag would've made it a good investment?

Some pay $500 for workshops hoping to change their piano playing forever. Some enroll in courses at a college for hundreds of dollars. Others spend years learning by experience.

I can't put an exact dollar figure on it for you --- only you can do that. But I can tell you this: at $47, this program could very possibly be the best bargain and the best investment you'll ever make in terms of your musical growth (especially as it relates to "shouting music").
